About this title


Describes what it is like to travel the PGA tour, looks at how professional golf has changed, and offers brief profiles of top golfers

From Publishers Weekly:

In 1988 Wartman ( Life Without Father ) followed the Professional Golfers' Association tour through every step. He here presents a lively account of that adventure, focusing on "player of the year" Curtis Strange, who evidently fought an uphill battle against his hot temper, and Aussie Greg Norman, depicted as a charismatic showman always ready to play to his fans. Also felt on the tour was the presence of Jack Nicklaus, who served as a TV sports commentator, and--not surprising in a player decreed "golfer of the century"--is portrayed as possessing monumental ego and furious competitive drive as an athlete. Likewise, we hear much of Deane Beman, autocratic commissioner of the game. Wartman's cast includes many others, from former president turned professional-amateur contender Gerald Ford ("a man with a history of bruising spectators with misdirected golf balls") to frantic officials hosting the tour and bent on keeping its public image squeaky-clean. Wartman's keen sense of the shenanigans surrounding this tour makes his tale arresting and fun. Photos not seen by PW.
