Product Description

Review

Launching to coincide with the Ryder Cup this is the official autobiography of the most experienced player on the European team and one of golf's all-time greats. An inspirational story of triumph over adversity.

About the Author

German BERNHARD LANGER has been one of the world's leading golf professionals for more than 20 years. In that time he has been ranked European and World Number One and has won countless tournaments including the Masters in 1985 and 1993. He is easily the most experienced player in Europe's 2002 Ryder Cup team; his selection is a mark of his remarkable recent return to form, having been left out of the previous team in 1999.

Format: Hardcover
Although he's been at the top of the game for 20 years, Bernhard Langer has remained a somewhat enigmatic character until now.
His story is one of conquering adversity in a country where golf was very much a minority sport. Indeed, in the 60s when Langer told a careers advisor of his intended path he was told: 'There is no such job as a golf professional.'
Bernhard Langer: My Autobiography covers the former world number one's rise to the top of his game, his overcoming of the dreaded 'yips', his hatred of partisan crowds and his deep religious beliefs that continue to inspire him.
Through this simply written book, we see that Langer is a true sportsman in every sense - never in it for the money and never looking to win off other's mistakes.
Occasionally there are one or two moments when the book needlessly explains the obvious (surely no golf fan needs to be told what a birdie or a bogey is), but that's a very minor gripe.
Golf autobiographies are rarely rivetting, but fans of the genial German will find much to enjoy, including some sensational photos from his early career.
It's refreshing to see someone release their life story in a way that is not surrounded by controversy and at an appropriate stage in their career. Langer's story is not about cashing in on his successes and that makes it all the more worthwhile.

Format: Hardcover
Bernhard Langer: My Autobiography covers the likeable German's rise from local course caddie to world number one and beyond and reveals plenty that will interest genuine golf fans.
For starters, when Langer told a career advisor of the career path he intended to follow, he was told 'There is no such thing as a golf professional.'
His story is therefore one of conquering adversity in a country where golf was very much a minority sport. However, once he got over initial hurdles, Langer's career is an exceptional one and here we see how much his first pay cheque meant to him, how he claimed two US Masters titles, how he overcame the dreaded yips and how his deep religious beliefs continue to inspire him.
Unlike many sports stars of today, Langer has chosen to release the story of his life at a suitable stage in his career and he is to be commended for that. This may not be the most dynamic and controversial book you'll ever read but that's not what Langer is about. His story is not about cashing in and his successes and that makes it refreshing and worthwhile.
For real fans, there are also a delightful selection of photos from his younger days, including a true gem of the very young Langer sporting a remarkable moustache! Worth every penny of the price tag alone.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Boring boring book written in a very straightforward 'German' way and in some chapters just reads like a list of achievements.

Avoid.

Faldo's is much better, like him or not you get to find out about the person and the player....
