Gary Player is one of golf’s greatest champions. As one of the “Big Three” of golf’s golden era (with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer), he helped launch golf as a major international sport. He sits fourth on the list of most major victories on the PGA Tour, and he built a reputation of being fearless on the course and steely on the greens. Now in its second edition, revised and updated, Don’t Choke is Player’s look at what it takes to achieve success when the pressure is on. Player explains how and why he became a champion and what it takes to win in big-time golf, but he also explains how learning to cope in high-pressure situations can help anyone.
This book is not all about golf. Player has had a long, successful career in business since his playing days—designing golf courses, marketing golf equipment and sportswear, and more. If you want to do better in a boardroom or in your next job interview, Player’s advice will help. This glimpse into the mind of a champion offers lessons to everyone who faces pressure.
