Overview

Welcome to the wonderful of big-time golf, as seen by Leroy Neiman, America's most popular sport's artist.

Through a vast array of colorful pictures and pithy comments, Neiman introduces us to the sport's people, places, and things. In this book, he presents:

Who's Who in Big-Time Golf- we meet the sport's legends (Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer), its pioneers (Byron Nelson, Charlie Sifford, Patty Berg ), and its stars of the 80's (Nick Faldo, Nancy Lopez, Greg Norman) and of the 90's (John Daly, Tiger Woods), both on and off the green.

Where's Where in Big-Time Golf- on a trip around the world, we visit the fairways of the famous (from St. Andrews to Pebble Beach, from Rio to Tokyo) and the clubhouses where they relax. In Big-Time Golf, Neiman hands us tickets to the major tournaments (The Masters, the U.S. Open), and gives us unobstructed views of all the activity...unless, of course, his artist's eye is distracted from the spectacle and the celebraties and focuses on a favorite tree or a particularly scenic view.

What's What in Big-Time Golf-the book concludes with a classic Neiman touch: his own guide to golf's "fore-letter" words, everything you need to know about the game.

With a light touch and active wit, Leroy Neiman shows us the game of golf as he understands it- not as a player , but as a chronicler and an artist. In all,Big-Time Golf is a whirlwind of light and shadow, of brilliant hues, of play-by-play action and color commentary. Its the perfect book for golf lovers-spectators, duffers, and pros.
