Description

Faldo has been branded one of the coldest men in British sport - at times better known for being aloof, arrogant and self-obsessed than for winning three Open Championships and three US Masters. But after thirty years as a professional golf player, his career continues to reach highs and his influence is even stronger than it was in the 1980s. What has driven Britain's most successful and most complex player to remarkable success? From golf superstardom to failed marriages and inexplicable losses in form, the updated edition of Nick Faldo: Driven analyses exactly what motivates this seemingly inscrutable man.show more
