Overview

ENDURANCE Winning Life's Majors the Phil Mickelson Way

For the first twelve years of his career, Phil Mickelson was one of the world's most skilled, successful, and beloved professional golfers. He also spent most of that period under the cloud of a different title—"The best golfer never to win a Major." Mickelson's persistence and talent were finally—and dramatically—rewarded with his heart-stopping, come-from-behind victory at the 2004 Masters.

Endurance traces Phil Mickelson's golfing career from the day he shot an amazing 144 as a three-year-old to his Masters victory and beyond.

Invaluable for golf fans and business readers alike, it reveals how, after already securing fabulous success in both his career and personal life, Phil Mickelson continued to study and refine his game toward reaching even greater achievement and fulfillment.

Phil Mickelson is esteemed around the world as the "Everyman" who reached the top. Endurance charts how Mickelson overcame disappointment and adversity to claim the ultimate prize—and how anyone can follow his model to do the same.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Magee (Turnaround: How Carlos Ghosn Rescued Nissan, Ford Tough) here tackles golfer Phil Mickelson. Why Mickelson? Though he's likable, handsome, and talented, both Ernie Els and Retief Goosenhave have won more majors, and the careers of other first-time majors winners like Todd Hamilton and Rich Beem have almost a storybook quality. What makes Mickelson a really interesting subject is that he has, in the popular parlance, "game" coupled with nonchalance. There is also the tragic element to his story: until he won the Masters in 2004, Mickelson wore the mantle of the best golfer never to have won a major. Magee's contribution is that he delves into Mickelson's keen interest in golf, work ethic, commitment to family, and character. He has done considerable research, such as noting that when taking a music appreciation course, Mickelson related the rhythms and tempos of particular pieces to golf swings. Though this book is well done, Mickelson is still mid-career, and with an autobiography just out from Warner (One Magical Sunday: But Winning Isn't Everything) this book is an optional purchase.-Steven Silkunas, North Wales, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
