From the cover: “Nick Faldo is Britain’s greatest ever golfer. His career record of six Majors, 34 Tour victories across Europe and the USA and 11 Ryder Cup appearances is unparalleled in European golf. He holds the record for the most points and matches won in the Ryder Cup and was the world number one golfer for 81 weeks, from July 1992 to January 1994.

Inspired to take up the sport while watching Jack Nicklaus contest the 1971 Masters at Augusta, Faldo, who had never picked up a club beforehand, made his Ryder Cup debut just six years later, defeating Nicklaus and Tom Watson, then the worlds two best players, on successive days.

In this definitive autobiography, Nick Faldo relives the excitement and drama of his sometimes turbulent career — including his British Open wins, his incredible comeback in the 1996 Masters, the pressures of sinking the vital putt in the 1995 Ryder Cup and the years of rebuilding when his swing deserted him — and provides an unprecedented insight into what it takes to be a champion. For the first time he also opens up about the incidents that have turned his private life into tabloid headlines.

The story of Nick Faldo is far from over but already it has been a sporting career unlike any other. Life Swings is a remarkably honest self-portrait by one of Britain’s greatest sportsmen, revealing him to be far removed from the character that Fleet Street has revelled in portraying.”
