Tee Off

Can’t make it to Erin Hills this weekend?  Then, set up a tee time with some of our fiction and non-fiction titles featuring the great game of golf.

Non-Fiction

The 1997 Masters: My Story by Tiger Woods

In 1997, twenty-one year old Tiger Woods beat all odds to win the Masters Tournament.  His remarkable win not only thrust him into superstardom, but his record-setting margin of victory made him a legend.  Now twenty years later, Woods explains in his own words how the championship changed his life as well as the sport.  Woods reminisces on the physical and mental preparation to compete; the guidance he received from both his parents and golf legends; his transition from an amateur to professional athlete; and his personal musings on the future of golf.   Plus, The 1997 Masters includes never-before-seen color photographs replicating Woods' epic win.

Fiction

The Swinger by Michael Bamberger and Alan Shipneck

Tree Tremont is a golf icon.  With fifty-three tour wins and thirteen major victories, Tree is living an athlete’s dream.  He has a gorgeous wife, two children, and corporate sponsorships galore, including the backing of both Coca-Cola and Pepsi.  However, being well-loved by corporate America and sports fans alike makes things worse for Tree when a reporter uncovers his illicit liaisons with numerous women.  As his public and private lives collide, Bamberger and Shipneck take readers on a whirlwind tour of the inner circle of elite golf.  Written by two well-seasoned Sports Illustrated writers, The Swinger presents fast, funny, and sometimes outrageous portrayals of love, sex, friendship, marriage, media, and life as a celebrity.
