The Greatest Game of All: My Life in Golf, Reviews
As being a student in high school, being very busy having a job and being very dedicated to golf and my goals, I still find it very important to have book of my interest with my at all times. It not only keeps my mind off of everything going on, but makes time feel relaxed while keeping up with my advancement in our own language. I think this book is a direct reflection of all that. The beginning of the book made it seem like it was going to be about Jack Nicklaus bragging about his career accomplishments. But after reading further into the book, I started to realize that it wasn’t that at all. He talks about his family, fellow competitors and even pets at the same time. Being in love with the game of golf wasn’t the only reason I read this book. I kept reading the book because I was intrigued by the language and the vivid descriptions used. Listening to Nicklaus talk made it seem like you could smell the freshly cut grass of Augusta National, hear the crunch of the frosty grass as you take a step to the tee of an early morning tee time, or hear the birds singing in the canopy’s of trees when trying to make that last putt to secure the win. It never seems like it can be bad or even get bad when you’re not going to win. “Resolve never to quit, never to give up, no matter what the situation”. Throughout Nicklaus’ career, I could see not only how he grew up physically and gained maturity, but saw how he grew mentally and emotionally. Although the book was mainly on Nicklaus’ life, it never got boring or dull. The quotes and vivid descriptions kept me in the book. When Jack is talking about his fellow competitor Charley Coe, he says, “His typical tee-shot is rifled on a fairly low trajectory with a right to left draw that gives the ball quite a bit of a run”. When I read this, I could see that shot in my head. It made me wish I was there. Quotes like “I'm a firm believer that in the theory that people only do their best at things they truly enjoy. It is difficult to excel at something you don't enjoy” made me feel more confident in myself. I wanted to hit the course and start golfing when I was done reading this book to prove to people what I’m capable of, just like Nicklaus did. I give The Greatest Game of All; My Life in Golf five out of five stars. I liked how Nicklaus said everything word for word and the fact that everything was in chronological order which made it easy to follow. It made me feel like I was experiencing the tournaments with him. The vivid descriptions made the book a great one.
This book was a very great read for myself as a golfer and high school. Reading about one of the greatest to ever play the game and seeing his mindset throughout his upcoming and a great golfer, but not only that a great role model. Someone I very much idolize and hope I could be a fraction of a golfer his was and still is. This book definitely for me is a book that you read and then it changes so much about the way you think and how you approach everything in life not just golf. This could be a book even for the average person because the way he handled himself and carried himself throughout his career is something to admire and maybe even copy though out anyone's life. This is a one hundred percent five star book in my eyes and I highly recommend this book to anyone!
