The Last Putt


This short book is about golf and golf professionals. It is about athletes (golfers) who "play for pay." However, when compared to other sports professionals, the professional golfer is remarkably different. The people who make up the various golf tours are true entrepreneurs. They invest their money, their time and their abilities in their vocation. Perhaps that basic difference explains the fact that there have been amazingly few scandals and other public demeaning acts created by the Tour's golf professionals.

Perhaps too, the professional golfer learned early on that clean and decent human behavior has a tremendous effect upon one's ability to perform at the highest level. Betsy King once said, "We have to be pretty self-centered and confident in ourselves to be successful on the Tour. We have strong personalities -maybe even more so than other professionals-because we have to depend solely on our own abilities."

The route to becoming a champion on the various Tours is lonely and treacherous. Only the very strong become Sunday's Heroes.
