About the Author

Reviews

A compelling read that ignites excitement and delivers insight on one of golf's most exceptional ball strikers.


Before reading Gordon Hobson's excellent biography, all I knew of Calvin Peete was that he was a Black golfer with an uncanny ability to find the fairway from off the tee. Thanks to Hobson's extensive research and vivid storytelling, I received a much-needed education. While Peete almost always hit the ball straight, off the course he had to overcome twists and turns that would have wrecked many a lesser man.
