5.0 out of 5 stars Even truths. 7 Nov 2000
By Prof. Roy A. Norman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Peter Mc Daniel, and Tiger Woods have written a most interesting chronological history of African American contributions, participation and interest in the heretofore, White world of golf. This book contains beautiful photoghraphs reflecting the joy we all feel while playing golf. In the past golf was a reflection of our American society complete with all of the racial restricitions present in this major American past-time. This history of Blacks in golf will serve as the most needed light that must shine on the dark secret world of, "Whites Only" golf. Uneven Lies presents another side to this unfortunate period in our sporting history by graphically showing that Black People made significant direct and supporting contributions to this wonderful sport even uder the stress of racial segregation. Uneven Lies takes you From the Caddies, the Stanford White Club House at Shinnecock Hills Country Club, in South Hampton, New York, to the UGA, PGA and the LPGA tours. Had African Americans been encouraged and subsequently, allowed to freely participate, as much as they were detered from participating in golf, one would wonder how many Tiger Woods and Althea Gibsons would we have today. Fortunately, we have all learned from the past mistakes and the sport is moving in a positive direction. Uneven Lies is an exceptional, warm and engaing historic representation of the evolution of golf both socially, as a sport and metaphor for life's trials, tribulations and resolutions. A must read and a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just lost my best friend (Nelson White) we formed The Greater Metro GC ... 16 July 2014
By Jamie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
What a book. Just lost my best friend (Nelson White) we formed The Greater Metro GC in NYC/NJ 40 years ago. We were fortunate to have some great golfers. This book clearly shows those before us and with us in getting access some of the top courses in the metro area. If you get your ducks in order and present yourself as a true professional - you stand a better chance of gaining access w/o a comprise!!!! Jamie

The content of the book is great. The condition of the book was a little worn, but I knew about that before I ordered it. Other than that, it arrived quickly and was what I expected.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Tribute 2 Jan 2013
By Greta Pope - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"Uneven Lies; The Heroic Story of African Americans in Golf" is a wonderful historic accounting of African Americans who have loved and excelled at the game of golf long before they were allowed to play on the major golf courses of the world. Because of discrimination in America, many of them only had the option to serve as caddies. Though they were excellent top-notch players, they were denied the opportunity to play competitively. In spite of the social inequities of the time, these wonderful golfers persevered and they exemplified "True American Spirit." I loved this book!
