Peter McEvoy has been at the top of amateur golf for 35 years. His entertaining insight into the game is told from the inside and features a stellar cast list – from Nicklaus, Player and Ballesteros through to Woods, Mickleson and Langer. It’s a celebration of the spirit of golf and a story about its players at every level of the game.
Spanning over 30 years of experiences, and ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, Peter McEvoy has a treasure trove of stories to tell involving the great, and the not so great, names of the sport.
McEvoy relives the enjoyment of playing amateur representative golf and mixing with colourful characters like Ian Woosnam, Sandy Lyle and Mark James, laying some myths to rest along the way.
On a more serious note, he looks at the professional game, and takes a caustic view on the money in the sport and why some brilliant players fail to make it while some mediocre golfers find success as a pro.
He also provides an expert view of the future of amateur game and predicts who will be the next great names of European golf to emerge.
