The Wicked Game: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods And The True Story Of Modern Golf

Howard Sounes



Tiger Woods is the most famous and best-paid sports figure in the world today, Arnold Palmer is the father of modern golf, and Jack Nicklaus is the game's greatest champion - together their lives encapsulate the real story of golf at the highest level. In this riveting book Sounes has had unprecedented access to the players and their closest associates - including Earl Woods and other members of Tiger's family, his friends, girlfriends, caddies and coaches, Palmer and Nicklaus themselves, Gary Player, Tony Jacklin, Tom Watson and Mark McCormack.

The resulting book contains many revelations about the personal lives, rivalries, the wealth, business deals and the secrets of these remarkable men, as well as the murky background history of a game marred by racism and sexism. For the first time the complete and true story of Tiger Woods and his family background is untangled. More than a conventional sports book, The Wicked Game is a compelling and entertaining story of talent, fame, wealth and power.
