Go For Broke: My Philosophy of Winning Golf by Arnold Palmer with William Barry Furlong hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
William Kimber, 1974, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: Go For Broke! is autobiographical, but the stories of what has happened on the course over the years are invariably used to tell the golfer-reader how the game is best played. Sometimes its a matter of technique. More often its a matter of nerve, tactics, imagination, and the competitive instinct.
A bold shot?
Yes. You must play boldly to win. My whole philosophy has been based on winning tournaments, not on finishing a careful fifth, or seventh, or tenth.
A reckless shot ?
No. In 1 8 years of tournament golf I feel Ive never tried a shot I couldnt make.
Those lines sum up what Arnold Palmer has to say about the right way to play golf dont retreat from a challenge. Later you remember the sweetness of the risk, not its dangers.
This is the golf instruction book with a difference. From Palmers experiences, both good and bad, you will learn how to deal with yourself and the inevitable changes you go through, how to conquer one golf course as opposed to another, how to think the way a thinking professional does. The book is a tremendously enjoyable one for any golfer, but it is much more than that. It can be a tool that could lift him right out of one brand of golfing into the next higher class.
