Golf Books #176 (The Majors 2015: The Thrilling Battle for Golf’s Greatest Trophies)

Mar 17th
2015

Golf Books #176 (The Majors 2015: The Thrilling Battle for Golf's Greatest Trophies)The stage is set for the 2015 Majors to be one of the most fascinating golfing years in decades, sure to be analysed and talked about for years to come. This will be the year when an emerging new generation, led by the super-talented Rory McIlroy, face off against long-established names like Tiger Woods, who is returning from injury.

McIlroy faced big personal challenges off the course, and Woods desperately wants to narrow in on Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 Major trophies – but he has to win four to catch up, and he hasn’t won one since 2008. And there will be no shortage of captivating storylines as Bubba Watson, the flamboyant American, prepares to defend his title.

Can the self-styled left-hander claim a third Green Jacket or will it be another lefty, Phil Mickelson, who slips his arms back into this the most coveted golfing garment? Of the younger generation, 21-year-old Jordan Spieth, who was runner up last year, or Rickie Fowler, who has finished second in his last three majors, could both mount memorable challenges. But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #167 (Rory’s Glory)

Dec 23rd
2014

CapturarAfter a fantastic start to his professional golf career with two majors in the bag, child prodigy and golf superstar Rory McIlroy suddenly hit a wall. His successes thinned out and he started to slide down the world rankings.

Rory was making more headlines off the course and on the front pages of the tabloids after a legal dispute with his former management team Horizon; the constant press speculation as to whether he would represent Great Britain or Ireland in the Olympics; and his on-off relationship with Caroline Wozniacki, which led to a New Years Eve engagement in Australia and then the sudden shock split as wedding invitations were being prepared.

Then, after all the traumas, came a double triumph in the summer in 2014 which Rory personally described as “an unbelievable summer and the greatest golf of my life.” Two more majors followed in just four weeks – The British Open and the USPGA – which put Rory in putting distance of becoming only the sixth man in history to win Golf’s Grand Slam as he looks to add the illusive US Masters to his resume. But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #158 (The Irish Majors: Irish Golf’s Magnificent Seven)

Oct 21st
2014

The Irish Majors Irish Golf's Magnificent SevenWhen Padraig Harrington won the Open Championship in 2007, it was the start of the most glorious period in the history of Irish golf. Harrington retained the coveted Claret Jug in 2008 and added the US PGA championship. In 2010, Graeme McDowell won the US Open and was succeeded as champion in 2011 by the phenomenally talented Rory McIlroy.

The remarkable run of Major champions from Ireland was continued that season when Darren Clarke claimed an emotional victory in the British Open, and most recently by Rory McIlroy who in 2012 also struck gold in the US PGA. The Irish Majors is the story of these great victories and of the background to Ireland’s golden generation of golfers.

“….best Irish golf book in years. Wonderful!”- Deric Henderson (Editor Ireland, Press Association)
“….this book captures each and every Major win by this golden generation of Irish golfers in a style that brings you to the heart of the action.” – Greg Allen (RTE Radio golf commentator)

“…an essential addition to the library of any sports lover.” – Brian Keogh (Irishgolfdesk.com)

“…the complete record of what has undoubtedly been the Golden Age of Irish golf” – Ivan Morris (Limerick Leader)

Golf Books #135 (Masters of Men: Rory McIlroy, Ken Venturi and their Epic Journey from Augusta to Bethesda)

Apr 1st
2014

Masters of Men is the story of one journey taken, over half a century apart, by two outstanding golfers. But, this is more than a golf book. It’s the story of two young men, and the people who filled their lives – the mentor who dominated Ken Venturi, the agent who loomed too large over Rory McIlroy, and the two young girls who became their first loves and lost their men as they became champions.

Uniquely, it pits the incredible struggles and victories of perhaps the single most naturally talented golfer from the 1950s and ’60s (Ken Venturi, US Open champion, 1964) against the game’s most naturally talented golfer of today (Rory McIlroy, US Open champion, 2011).

It puts them on the same tee boxes, on the same greens, on the same day. Masters of Men uniquely, and dramatically, brings together for two days, two remarkable golfers from two different ages in golf – on the final day of their greatest failure, and the final day of their most remarkable triumph. It weaves in elements of cultural and social history, examines the birth of two of the greatest golf courses in the United States, Augusta National and Congressional CC, and examines the journey undertaken by the game of golf, and its greatest players from generations past, from Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan, to Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, to Greg Norman and Tiger Woods.

It is an extraordinary story and one that will appeal to both golf fans and the wider sport-reading public. But wait, there’s more…
