Tiger Woods: A Biography - £16.14
Tiger Woods: A Biography This work examines the life of a golfer who has had a significant impact not only on the sports world but on popular culture as well. Although golf is seldom thought of as a sport for minorities, Tiger Woods has given the sport appeal for a whole new audience. When only a teenager, Woods accomplished many junior records in golf and enjoyed unusual attention for a young person. Though he is not yet thirty years old, Woods' impact on popular culture goes beyond the world of sport, and his celebrity status has made him probably the most recognised athlete in the world. This biography describes the life of a child prodigy who has so far lived up to his potential. It includes information on his early life, the influence of his parents, and the relationship between celebrity and the media. A timeline is included highlighting significant events in his life, along with a bibliography of print and electronic sources.

Heroes All: My 2006 Ryder Cup Story This is not just an account of on-course triumph. Just weeks before the 2006 Ryder Cup, Darren Clarke's wife, Heather, lost her long battle with cancer. Inspired by the support of team-mates and opposition players alike, Darren made himself available, and was selected as captain Ian Woosnam's final wild card choice. The rest is history. Both moving and entertaining, this story of loss, recovery and victory, "Heroes All" is a memorable testament to sport - and sportsmanship - at its very best.

To the Fairway Born - £11.39
To The Fairway Born: Sandy Lyle Sandy Lyle is one of Britain's best-loved golfers. As both Faldo and Ballesteros have commented, he had 'the greatest God-given talent in history' and in 1985 he became the first Briton for 16 years to win the Open. Three years later he was the first British player ever to win the Masters, playing one of the most famous shots of all time to secure victory. At the height of Lyle's success, his swing began to fail. He refused to give up, earning him huge admiration and respect from the golfing public. In 2005 he showed he still has the talent to compete, when he went into the final round of the Open very much in contention, six behind Tiger Woods. Lyle's story is one of classic sporting moments, golfing genius and gritty determination to battle back to the top, told with his natural charm and wit.

Life Swings: Nick Faldo - £18.04
Life Swings: Nick Faldo For many years in the 1980s and 1990s, Nick Faldo was the most feared competitor in world golf. Relentless and strong-willed, he would wear down his opponents with his determination to win. It was these attributes that brought him six major championships: Harry Vardon, a century ago, is the only European to have won more. He also holds many Ryder Cup records. But Faldo's success came at a price: he had to remodel his game, working with David Leadbetter, and the effort took him away from home, leading to divorces and media attention on his private life. Now he feels the time is right to talk not just about his golf, but about his whole life and how he has achieved a new calm in recent years, and to reveal the private man behind the public face.
