My Father's Day Gift Recommendations

(Image via Jack Nicklaus on Facebook.)
IF YOU ARE STILL IN NEED of a Father's Day gift, I can recommend my two golf books: DRAW IN THE DUNES: The 1969 Ryder Cup and the Finish That Shocked the World and THE LONGEST SHOT: Jack Fleck, Ben Hogan, and Pro Golf's Greatest Upset at the 1955 U.S. Open.

Both books are published by St. Martin's Press and are available at the usual places in hardcover and ebook versions.

DRAW IN THE DUNES includes a foreword by Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin. I'd like to say Jack recommends it, but instead I'll just say that, well, look at his desk in the above photo. The book received favorable reviews.

THE LONGEST SHOT was named a Top 10 Sports Book of 2012 by Booklist. Charlie Nance of WFNZ The Fan interviewed me last week to mark the 60th anniversary of Jack Fleck's titanic upset of Ben Hogan. Listen to the interview (segment two).

Best wishes to all fathers.
