One of the most powerful players of his generation, Ian Woosnam is a golfing legend. His is a fascinating life story - from the struggle to earn a living in a hard-working mining community, through the highs and lows of the amateur and professional game, to becoming a household name. Woosnam has strong opinions on how to keep the game "honest" and the threat posed by modern technology and the regulation of the professional game. And on a lighter note, he revisits the wealth of characters he has come across both inside and outside the game: from Seve Ballesteros and Nick Faldo to Ian Botham and Dennis Taylor.
