Overview

For a short while, after a rapid rise, David Thorp was the leading Midlands professional golfer, a British international player and one of the top British club professionals, before an equally fast drop into obscurity.

How could this happen and where did it all go wrong? These are questions that the author will answer in this fascinating narrative while giving an insight into the world of professional golf in the seventies and eighties.

Be there with David as he confidently tees off in the British Open at Royal St. Georges behind Jack Nicklaus and in the PGA Championship at Wentworth when his movement control is so impaired that he wishes he could disappear.

This is not the usual story of a British sporting star's fame and fortune, but is about an ordinary young man with a special talent and his gritty determination to succeed despite a disabling condition.
