Gary Player: Golf's Global Ambassador from South Africa to Augusta (Sports)

By John Boyette

The History Press
Released: 2012-04-01
Kindle Edition (133 pages)

Gary Player: Golf s Global Ambassador from South Africa to Augusta (Sports)
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

Blazing the Trail: Celebrating 90 years of Black Golf in Southern Africa

By Barry Cohen

Released: 2019-06-06
Kindle Edition (365 pages)

Blazing the Trail: Celebrating 90 years of Black Golf in Southern Africa
Product Description:
After 90 years the story of black golf must be told. From the time when African chiefs indentured their tribe’s youth to work as caddies, to the first black golf course, Bambata Boodhun playing in the British Open, and black golf courses laid out in the bush. Wonderful golfers such as Papwa Sewgolum winning three Dutch Opens, and two Natal Open beating Gary Player head-to-head and in so doing becoming the symbol of the anti-apartheid movement resulting in an assassination attempt and banning. Vincent Tshabalala winning the French Open then banned, and Lewis Chitengwa beating Tiger Woods twice, and many other stories.

The author brings to life the trials and tribulations faced by people of colour trying to play a sport they loved. At the same time this is also an important reference work including tournament statistics and results beautifully illustrated featuring 53 colour and 86 black and white photographs, and their ranking within the context of Southern Africa golf. This sport collector’s volume chronicles the major impact this sport had on breaking down the apartheid barrier and overcoming discrimination, determination, and the quest to win against all odds.

It is a rare glimpse into the extraordinary lives of Southern Africa’s top black golfers, and ultimately their induction into the Southern Africa Golf Hall of Fame.

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.
