I was a late comer to Arnie's Army. He was already past prime, but I still wanted him to best Jack. That all changed into 1986, Jack's final major victory at Augusta, a glorious televised ending to a legendary career. I enjoyed Jack then as much as I had Arnie. Great one on one rivalries in sports are rare, especially now. Tiger Woods has no such counterpart, never will. Even Tiger would admit that the modern game of (and business of) golf has Arnie and Jack to thank for what it is to day and will be forever more. This was great read, albeit limited to those who love the arcane history of a sport that quite frankly is still mostly about rich or well to do kids with a talent for performing and making a great living on not the most stressful of backdrops. I would guess that mostly older men and golf fans as myself will enjoy this read the most, but if you're young and you really want to know about a rare sports duo that will likely never again be matched, try it out. The narration is smooth, a bit monotonous at times, but still lovingly given.
What could a golf shrink tell me that I hadn't already figured out through years of frustration? Plenty. Although much of it is the power of positive thinking, the beauty is that it is focussed on how to manage a golf course, how to practice, what to concentrate on and how the professional golfer thinks. You won't be disappointed!
