The late Harvey Penick always told Tom Kite to "take dead aim...before every shot." In this unique memoir, Kite, captain of the 1997 U.S. Ryder Cup team, tells the story of Penick, the greatest teacher golf has ever known, his golf secrets, and how he taught them; of Kite's own friendly rivalry with Ben Crenshaw; and of the special relationship enjoyed by all three men. More than just another golf book, Tom Kite's story is of the bonding of generations - between the teacher who recently died at the age of ninety and two of his pupils who are among the world's best golfers. Tom Kite is one of the most consistent low scorers on the tour. Winner of the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, Kite claims a total of nineteen tour victories and annual career earnings approaching $10 million. He was recently the all-time leading money winner on the PGA Tour. Few golfers have a better Ryder Cup record; in seven years of play, Kite has earned fifteen wins and 17 points. Mickey Herskowitz's previous bestseller-list collaborations include All My Octobers with Mickey Mantle, The Camera Never Blinks with Dan Rather, Cosell by Cosell, and This 'n' That with Bette Davis.
