Publisher's Summary

During his more than 40-year career as champion amateur, dominating professional, and senior star, the Golden Bear has won almost 100 tournaments around the world. Topping that astounding achievement are his record 20 major-championship victories: two U.S. Amateurs, six Masters, four U.S. Opens, three British Opens, and five U.S. PGA Championships.
This is Jack Nicklaus’ complete and compelling in-depth account of his legendary major triumphs, along with many other competition highlights—and some lowlights, too—of one of the greatest sports careers of all time.


What the Critics Say

“The most important golf autobiography since that of Nicklaus’ boyhood hero, Bobby Jones. A chronicle of rare insight and depth. It manages to increase the reputation of its subject. And like him, it will last.” (Washington Times)
“Nicklaus is very calming in that unpretentious Midwestern way, and Ian Esmo's reading is controlled and blissfully unintrusive. It's like listening to the Golden Bear himself as he recounts the 20 major championships he won between 1959 and 1986.” (AudioFile)

How he played

This book is an excellent recount of Jack's golf life. He treats his emotional ups and downs, with shot evaluations, satisfaction with his technique, and the many times others helped him. It gives a good feeling for how Jack lived and prospered I found it helpful to know that he faced many of the doubts that I have.

Good story, bad narrator

at first I thought the book was being read by Siri's father. way to robotic, very little inflection.

however, the story was well written.
