Overview

Ernie Els' dramatic victory at Muirfield 2002 made it one of the most memorable British Open competitions in years. In this volume, Els' caddie Ricci Roberts absorbingly recounts the drama as it unfolded out on the weatherbeaten course, adding to a selection of untold stories spanning four decades, as told by the caddies of previous Open champions. Roberts also discusses his long-standing career as Els' caddie, covering the triumphs of two US Open wins and the Open disappointments that preceded the latest victory. Elsewhere, we learn how Paul Lawrie decided on the shot that won the 1999 Open at Carnoustie, who provided the calming influence for "Wild Thing" John Daly at St Andrews in 1995, and just what Greg Norman learned from his right-hand-man in 1986 which helped him lift the trophy in 1993.
