Be enlightened by the unique book that you can’t find elsewhere about the world of golf and more stories behind it.
Professional golfer and author Bill Pelham educates the readers through his book called Burke and Demaret- The Wit and Wisdom of Golf's Most Colorful Duo.
Drawn by his experience, he carefully recounts a chronicle that honors two of the most exceptional golfers in his native Houston alongside those characters who made golf significant as it is today.
The duo Jackie Burke and Jimmy Demaret opened doors for golf enthusiasts and professional players that made them famous to an entire nation of golfers. “These stories tell much more about these two men from a perspective that most histories have never considered writing about,” Pelham says.
Notable celebrities like Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, James Garner, and Phil Harris to some of the greats of every sport including Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Willie Mays, Roger Maris, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods . . . all left their footprints in Champions’ rich history.
Pelham reminds the readers to appreciate the present and glorify the memories of those who carved their names in golf or any fields of sports and remember them forever.
