You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots but you have to play the ball where it lies ... So, play it where it lies, and have fun reading the book "

On April 15, 2011, the Maryvale Golf Course celebrates its Golden Anniversary. Opening Day at Maryvale was a well-chronicled event in the newspapers of the day. The book first takes you on a look back to April 15, 1961 and provides the stories of two individuals who were key participants at that glorious event. Within its fifty years, the golf course has been a second-home to many golfers passionate about the game. These difference-makers share their memories of the fabled fairways of Maryvale. The west side course was host to major golf events highlighted by the Don Sanderson Ford Invitational and Johnny Miller Pro-Am. These events showcased Arizona’s best golfers. William Godfrey takes you on a special five-decade-journey and introduces you to the people and events that shaped its history and those who will impact its future. This is his second book. Here is what others said about his first book, ‘Papago Park—Th e Golf Course and its History: “It’s truly a book that everyone who lives in the Valley and plays golf at Papago should read. Great work . . . it will be in my possession forever.” -Terry Beels, 1968 Papago Club Champion “It is one of the greatest short story books . . . it is an outstanding read!” —Greg Ellis, PGA, host of ‘Bunker-to-Bunker,’ KTAR-AM radio “Will Godfrey’s wonderful book captures the story, humanism and feel of Papago’s past, present and future. It is great reading for any lover of the game.” —Peter Longo, PGA Professional and International trick-shot-artist “If you’ve ever experienced Papago, whether as an Arizonan or visitor, I recommend this addition to your golf library. It will certainly become a part of Arizona’s golf literary history.” —Forrest Richardson, golf course architect and author

This book is a tribute to the beauty of New Jersey Golf Courses, New Jersey’s contribution to the legacy of golf in America and the outstanding golf course architects who designed these courses. The book demonstrate that the game of golf is much more than playing a round of golf and recording a score on the score card, but one that allows golfers of all levels to enjoy the beauty of the golf course being played. It is my hope that this book will broaden the perspective of experienced golfers about the beauty of the game of golf, the extraordinary role New Jersey played in its American beginnings, and to provide golfers and non-golfers alike with an introduction to the beauty of New Jersey golf courses.

The game of golf has been witness to dramatic change since the early 1980s. Technology has relegated polished wooden drivers and wound balls covered with balata to the dustbin of history. The world's great courses have been stretched unfathomable lengths to counter the game's modern champions and the distances they hit the ball. In the end, though, it still comes down to the players. Jim Moriarty has focused his attention on the glory, sacrifice, success, and despair of these champions. In Playing Through, he captures the essence of this most recent, most transformative chapter in golf's long history. He writes of the last great rivalry: Jack Nicklaus versus Tom Watson; the rise of the European juggernaut with Seve Ballesteros and Nick Faldo; the Ryder Cup spectacles of 1999 and 2012 and the romance of team golf; the tragic loss of Payne Stewart and Ballesteros, both gone too soon; the emergence of the Australians, South Africans, South Americans, and Pacific Rim players in the Presidents ∪ and the man who ruled golf, Tiger Woods. Golf may have changed in the last thirty-five years, but Moriarty's words show that no matter how far the ball flies, it still pits players against themselves, the elements, and their opponents to remain the game we all know and love.

The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail tells how a bold, imaginative investment by a public employee pension fund turned into a world-class tourist attraction that helped change the image and boost the economy of an entire state. The pension fund was the Retirement Systems of Alabama, and its alternative investment was in a string of golf courses and affiliated high-end hotels and spas. In business-speak, this was an "economically targeted investment" designed to diversify returns, create jobs, and increase tax revenue. Twenty-five years later, the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is known worldwide for the quality and beauty of its courses and the hospitality and elegance of its resorts. It has significantly increased Alabama's infrastructure for tourism and conventions, provided millions upon millions in new tax revenues, spurred construction of thousands of units of adjacent housing, and helped persuade other businesses to locate in the state. Making the Golf Trail a reality involved not only the initial vision of CEO David G. Bronner and his associates at RSA, but also the design genius and reputation of Robert Trent Jones Sr. and the hard work of many dedicated engineers and builders. It also required the cooperation of scores of local and state elected officials and economic developers. This book is the illustrated historical account of the financial, legal, political, and economic impact details of RSA's investment in the RTJ Golf Trail. Such a detailed history could not have been written without the years of economic analysis conducted by author Mark Fagan dating back to the earliest stages of the concept. Fagan's ongoing involvement with Dr. Bronner and those working to develop the Trail made possible the mammoth one-of-a-kind history that is presented in this book.

It was a moment seen by millions on television. During play at the 1999 Phoenix Open, Tiger Woods had a "loose impediment? removed to play his shot -- an everyday occurrence under golf's rules. But that impediment was not a leaf or twig, it was a 350-pound boulder that took six people to move! The gallery and television audience buzzed with disbelief. How could this be legal under the rules? Indeed it could, says golf legend Arnold Palmer, who throughout his distinguished career has taken part in a sizable share of rules controversies. Despite the fact that golf has fewer rules than such sports as baseball or football or rugby, it is a contest of honor, and all players, be they tour professionals or casual weekend hackers, respect the rules. But, as Palmer points out, sometimes the rules are a little confusing -- and from time to time, even the pros are puzzled. When exactly is a ball considered "lost?? How is "slow play? defined? And when is a "drop? allowed? Palmer helps makes sense of it all with simple-to-understand language and hundreds of "infamous? pictures of some of the more controversial rulings -- affording readers a visual recall of memorable moments involving Greg Norman, Lee Janzen, Mark O'Meara, John Daly, even Palmer himself. If you're one of the millions who taketo the links every year, need a clear explanation of all the rules of the game you love, and more important, don't want to be speechless when an argument over the "coefficient of restitution? pops up, then Playing By The Rules will be an invaluable guide you'll refer to time and again.

A century of Pittsburgh’s rich sports history is celebrated through 50 greatest moments in this volume, culled from the coverage by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Among the storied past of athletics in the Pennsylvanian city, this collection highlights such events as the Pirates at the World Series; Steelers' Super Bowls; the Penguins with their back-to-back Stanley Cups; the era when Carnegie “Tech,” Duquesne, and Pitt were all playing college bowls; and boxing title bouts fought by Harry Greb, Teddy Yaroz, and Billy Conn. These moments and others from the wide spectrum of franchises and Hall of Fame athletes in Pittsburgh’s history are celebrated in a commemorative format that illustrates why Pittsburgh has earned the title of the “Best Sports City” more than once and why “City of Champions” has come to describe the town time and time again.

Peter Alliss has been entertaining huge TV audiences for the BBC and ABC in America for many years. In this new anecdotal but thoroughly practical book, Peter Alliss sets out to promote golf as the answer to middle-aged discontentment. Peter Alliss has no difficulty giving compelling reasons as to why golf is the perfect game for adults - breathtaking scenery, fresh air, camaraderie and instant therapy. The author describes how to go about taking up the game, what equipment is necessary to buy and who to contact for lessons. With the aid of line drawings, he describes the basic techniques of golf, how to maintain a consistent swing and how to build up self-confidence. GOLF - THE CURE FOR A GRUMPY OLD MAN is aimed at regular golfers whose skills have deteriorated and would-be golfers who need the guidance as to which path to follow. Alliss's humorous but always helpful book will confirm the great game as a really accessible and hugely enjoyable pastime to pursue for both men and women.
