It’s been called “the game of games”—and for good reason. “Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated,” observed Arnold Palmer, arguably the game’s greatest player. “It satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening—it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.”

If you’ve spent any time on a golf course, you’ll understand the truth behind those words. Although golf is a game that even a child can learn to play well, it takes a set of complex skills that often defy mastery—and leave many of its most ardent devotees emotionally bruised and spent at the end of a long day of “relaxation” on the links.

In Champions Speak out on Golf, the game’s greatest players and teachers—along with other notables who have made it their pastime—talk about the why’s and how’s of this game enjoyed by rich and poor alike, and observe how golf mirrors life in general.

Tiger Woods: “It doesn’t matter how long you hit it. You’ve got to be accurate.

Billy Casper: “Golf puts a man’s character on the anvil and his richest qualities to the flame."

Gary Player: “I never pray that I may win. I just ask for the courage to do my best.

The men and women who have made golf their profession—and their passion—have much to teach us about how we live our lives. Their poignant, witty, wise—and often profound—reflections, recorded in Champions Speak out on Golf, will challenge and inspire you to face your days with courage, faith, discipline, and determination.

As legendary LPGA great Patty Berg once observed: “What does it take to be a champion? Desire, dedication, determination, concentration, and the will to win.”

That’s golf—and that’s life.
