Preferred Lies: and Other True Golf Stories by Mike ClaytonIn Preferred Lies, veteran golf journalist Charles Happell and player and course architect Mike Clayton take you inside the ropes, drawing on their decades of experience in the game – from boarding Greg Norman’s yacht after his disastrous loss at the US Masters, to caddying at the Olympic Games when golf featured for the first time in over one hundred years.
They are joined by a host of contributors: Steve Williams shares the secrets of Augusta that Norman, Scott and Tiger Woods relied on when he caddied for them at the US Masters; Peter Thomson pays homage to St Andrews, the game’s spiritual home and the course where he won one of his five British Opens; Scottish golf writer John Huggan chats with his old mate, one-of-a-kind commentator Peter Alliss; comedian and amateur golfer Rob Sitch, an avowed disciple of Dr Bob Rotella, discusses the psychology of golf; and more.
From Ben Hogan to Karrie Webb, Magnolia Lane to the Road Hole, the evolution of the golf ball to the playing etiquette of Japan, this is a full round of golf stories from those who know the game best.
