Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Beard was a success on the PGA Tour, scoring 11 tournament victories between 1963 and 1971 and coauthoring the book Pro about his 1969 season. Now he returns with an account of his 1991 season on the Senior Tour, giving details about what Sports Illustrated golf writer Garrity, using a felicitous phrase, calls ``life's back nine.'' Their book is less felicitous. If Beard is not the most self-aborbed person playing the links game, he must come close. We read about his perfectionism, his concern about his alcoholism (now apparently under control), his response to columns he wrote for Golf World magazine, his feelings about how he fared as a TV commentator, his pleasure at the changed attitude of children toward him, and so forth. (Aug.)
Library Journal
A sports announcer once commented that professional golfers on the men's tour were the most boring group of people he'd ever met because all they ever talked about was money--a point amply borne out by the author, whose favorite word in this book is . . . money. Beard sounds as though he doesn't have a dime in this world, despite his being the leading money winner on the PGA tour in 1969 and earning $500,000 in fewer than two years on the PGA Senior tour, a successful new event featuring players over 50. Beard captures the reader's interest with frank discussions of his struggle to overcome alcohol abuse, his second marriage, and his bitterness toward Jack Nicklaus, who designs courses to suit his own game and takes a somewhat light-hearted view of the senior tour. Beard, by contrast, often sounds self-pitying, although this well-written book (co-authored by a Sports Illustrated golf reporter) has its moments.-- Jim Paxman, Tennessee State Univ., Nashville
