This Golfing Life
"Michael Bamberger has led a lucky golfing life: caddying on the PGA Tour, falling under the spell of a golf master in Scotland, and hanging out with Arnold Palmer at the Masters. For the past two decades, he's been writing about the game for newspapers, in books, and, since the start of the Tiger era, as a senior writer for Sports Illustrated." "This Golfing Life is the story of Bamberger's golf journey, from a young man trying to find a home in golf to a middle-aged man whose best friendships, and best times, come out of the game. It brings together Bamberger's celebrated and intimate reporting on Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, Annika Sorenstam, and Michelle Wie, and portrays the behind-the-ropes golf people who give the game its texture: the caddie-yard lifers, golf bums, iconoclastic architects, powerful TV executives, swing gurus, desperate parents, eager rookies, and wistful veterans. They're all here, culled from the best of the author's work over the past twenty years. Bamberger has rewritten these stories and woven them, and his own golf experiences, into one single, seamless, and exhilarating narrative. It will remind golfers why they fell in love with the game in the first place, and alert nongolfers to what they are missing."--BOOK JACKET.
