About the Author

John Boyette is sports editor of the Augusta Chronicle. He has covered twenty-four Masters Tournaments and has directed the newspaper's award-winning coverage since 2001. His first trip to the Masters came in 1974, and the winner that year was South Africa's Gary Player. While in college, Boyette worked on the leader boards during the Masters and was assigned to cover the tournament in 1986. He followed Jack Nicklaus throughout the final round that year and witnessed firsthand the Golden Bear's sixth and final Masters victory. That Masters inspired Boyette's first book, The 1986 Masters: How Jack Nicklaus Roared Back to Win, which was published in 2011. Boyette lives in Aiken, South Carolina, with his wife, Kathy.

By Steven P. Leakey on December 30, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was expecting/hoping for a more comprehensive accounting of Mr. Player's overall life and career. The focus was clearly on his spectacular golf history. However, his philanthropy, diplomacy, world travel experiences, diverse business career, health and fitness contributions etc. all could have been reported in much more detail. The book is rather short, I would have welcomed a much longer book with a more ambitious writing effort on this remarkable person.
