Product description

1963 (Second Edition, same year as First) published by Cassell

Peter Alliss's autobiography told with the help of Bob Ferrier. A fascinating account of the Alliss's life as a professional golfer. With many black & white photographs, this is a great book for any golfing fan. As well as his life story there are many useful golfing tips.

Peter Alliss (born 28 February 1931) is a former English professional golfer, and is a television presenter and commentator, author and golf course designer. Alliss is known for his charismatic and unique style of commentary and banter, often displaying a witty demeanour. In 2012 he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in the Lifetime Achievement category.

Between 1952 and 1969, Alliss won 20 important professional tournaments, including three British PGA Championships, in 1957, 1962 and 1965. He had five top-10 finishes in the Open Championship, coming closest in 1954 at Royal Birkdale when he finished just four shots behind the champion Peter Thomson. Alliss played on eight Ryder Cup teams between 1953 and 1969 and had a record of 10 wins, 15 losses and 5 halved matches. Peter and his father Percy were the first father and son to both participate in the Ryder Cup. Alliss also represented England in the World Cup on 10 occasions.

Complete with original dust jacket -which has not been price clipped. Some light rubbing wear and light marks on the dust jacket and the page edges are a bit dusty with a few foxing spots. However the binding is tight and the pages are clean overall. Board cover is bright and clean.
