Product Description:
Gary Player's golf career will come full circle in April 2012 when he joins Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus as honorary starters at the Masters Tournament. Player rose from humble beginnings in South Africa to become an international golf superstar, and his success at Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters is the highlight of his impressive resume. His accomplishments include three Masters wins, the record for most starts at the Masters and numerous other distinctions. Player's career includes 167 worldwide wins, which includes all the Grand Slam titles on the regular tour and the senior tour. At age 76 you might think Player is ready to slow down, but in fact he is still a relevant and influential figure. His brand is thriving with business deals around the globe, and the tireless effort he put in long ago to make the game truly international is paying off as foreign-born players have dominated the majors in recent years. This book will highlight and celebrate Player's remarkable career with a special emphasis on his time in Augusta, and it also will tell how Player is an inspiration not only to his fellow South Africans but to golfers all around the globe

Product Description:
The gripping account of Arn Durand’s first two years with Koevoet, South Africa’s most deadly fighting unit during the Border War. Through Durand’s eyes, the reader will experience the madness, mayhem and complexity of the war. A unit of the South African police, Koevoet was the most deadly fighting force involved in the Border War. This book is the account of Arn Durand’s first years with Koevoet, from 1982 to 1983. He describes patrols, ambushes and contacts, situations of certain death, dealings with the enemy and relationships with his Ovambo colleagues. This book does not glorify war or peddle propaganda. It simply relates, in a deadpan style, what it was like to be a killing machine in the heat of battle.

The Kings of Swing: Behind the Scenes with South Africa’s Golfing Greats

By Craig Urquhart

Zebra Press
Released: 2013-09-01
Kindle Edition (296 pages)

The Kings of Swing: Behind the Scenes with South Africa’s Golfing Greats
 
Product Description:
The Kings of Swing is the intimate and extraordinary story of those South African golfers who have won numerous Major championships – more than any other nation outside of the United States. Their victories were achieved despite decades of sporting isolation and, during the post-apartheid era, in the shadow of possibly the greatest athlete of all time. This is a story of plane, train and car crashes, psychosurgery, a lightning strike, a broken beer bottle, a misplaced marker, a beautiful autistic boy and a scandal that ensnared the country’s most famous sportsman and led to the resignation of a prime minister. It is a story of the power of the mind and the power of the body in this, the most fickle of all sports. It is a story of dramatic highs and lows, of desperate poverty and fabulous wealth.
It is a rare glimpse into the extraordinary lives of South Africa’s top golfers …

The Hole Truth and Other Mostly True Stories: With Dale Hayes, Denis Hutchinson and Simon Hobday
 
Product Description:
The Hole Truth and Other Mostly True Stories and is a collection of short stories, experiences and anecdotes from Dale Hayes, Denis Hutchinson and Simon Hobday - written and edited by former Compleat Golfer Magazine editor Brendan Barratt.
Dale, Denis and Simon are three of the greatest characters of South African golf. While each boasts an impressive playing record, with multiple wins on the European and Sunshine Tours, the trio hail from a time when golf was less serious and, as such, players got up to a lot more mischief both on and off the course.
With over 150 years combined experience as professional golfers, the three former South African Open champions have seen and done it all. Thankfully, they still remember most of the details.
In The Hole Truth and Other Mostly True Stories, Dale, Denis and Simon invite you inside the ropes to relive their funniest golfing moments.
