Good topic (Jack's major tournament wins) by a great golfer and sportsman (Jack Nicklaus). Here's my book report: Jack Nicklaus’ instruction from Jack Grout My Story p. 384-6 1. The first and always the most important of Jack’s fundamentals concerned your head. You had to keep it in the same place throughout the swing, not rigidly anchored by steady. It wasn’t good enough to “keep your eye on the ball,” because you could keep your eye on the ball and still move your head around quite a lot, and when you did that you changed your body angles, which messed up your arc, and upset your balance, and wrecked your timing. 2. The second of Jack’s basics concerned the other end of the anatomy, the feet. Here, he believed, lay the source of balance and of full free coiling and uncoiling of the body, both indispensable to good golf. The way you achieved them was through your ankles. you didn’t go at it stiffed-legged like a stork,...
What a wonderful read. Mr. Nicklaus's victories were far from the inevitable deeds of a conquering god as they seemed to me as a child. Only a few came relatively easily. Mostly there was searching, thinking, courage, guts, and struggle to win the competition. And he loved it all. He has great and wonderful things to say about all the golfers he competed against and glorious information about his family.
I loved this book. I will treasure it forever.
This was a wonderful book when it was first published, and it has stood the test of time. The inside story told by one of the greatest players of the game is interesting, funny, and thought-provoking as well. Nicklaus is well aware of his legion of fans, but he is very honest about his ups and downs during his career. He faults only himself for not doing more, but at the same time inspires us and the next generation of golfers to continue to improve the game.
