Amazon.com: HASH(0x96e877b0) out of 5 stars 1 review
HASH(0x96c25c6c) out of 5 stars Slapdash effort which could easily have been updated, but wasn't 16 Sept. 2013
By Gary K. McCormick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Peter Alliss's "Golf Heroes" is a collection of biographical sketches of a number of the most significant golf personalities of the 20th and early 21st centuries. Not intended to be deep examinations, the chapters are of varying lengths according, I suppose, to Mr Alliss's interest in and level of regard for, the subject.

Since this edition of the book was printed in 2007, I didn't expect it to be up to date, but it could have been updated to take into account events which transpired between the original 2002 publication date and the 2007 printing - Phil Mickelson's two Master's victories and PGA Championship win are examples.

Female golfers get short shrift, with only 18 pages devoted to women - pretty poor attention paid to an exciting side of the game.

Conclusion: OK for quick sketches of the golfers profiled, but by no means a comprehensive look at their lives.
