Product Description & Reviews
During his more than forty-year career as champion amateur, dominating professional, and senior star, the Golden Bear has won almost one hundred tournaments around the world. Topping that astounding achievement are his record twenty major-championship victories: two US Amateurs, six Masters, four US Opens, three British Opens, and five US PGA Championships. This is Jack Nicklaus' complete and compelling in-depth account of his legendary major triumphs, along with many other competition highlights--and lowlights--of one of the greatest sports careers of all time. As "The Golfer of the Century," Jack Nicklaus is a recognized authority on the game's history and direction, and in his 13th book, My Story, he shares the details of his most impressive victories. With 20 major championships under his belt, he has plenty of highlights to share, including shot-by-shot analyses of his classic battles with fellow legends Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, and Tom Watson. Indeed, Nicklaus seems to recall every shot of his illustrious career, and he is able to infuse his discussions of final round action with suspense, even though we've known the outcomes all these years. To this erudite study of golf the Golden Bear adds personal elements that reveal the man behind the one-iron. Nicklaus describes his business dealings--both successes and failures--his love of golf course design, the effects of celebrity status, and his childhood. Written with his longtime collaborator Ken Bowden, My Story is another eagle for the man whose name fills the record books.
