Book Re­views

Ladies in Racing - - Contents - By Madeleine Win­nett

RRP $11.99 Kin­dle Edi­tion Ali­son Ni­cholas, MBE, is one of Great Bri­tain’s most suc­cess­ful golfers. In a pro­fes­sional ca­reer span­ning more than 20 years, she won 18 tour­na­ments in­clud­ing the Bri­tish Open, topped the Ladies Euro­pean Tour Or­der of Merit and, in 1997, won the most pres­ti­gious cham­pi­onship in golf - the US Open. Her ag­gre­gate ten-un­der-par to­tal was, at the time, the low­est in the his­tory of the cham­pi­onship and she be­came The Sun­day Times Sportswoman of the Year, and LET Play­ers’ Player of the Year.

In this can­did and en­ter­tain­ing book, Ali­son ex­plores her years on both the LET and LPGA Tours, the ups and downs, her tour­na­ment records, her faith, and - of course - the Sol­heim Cup. Filled with anec­dotes from the other side of the ropes, be­hind-the-scenes in­sights, and im­ages from her pri­vate photo col­lec­tion, the book charts the hard work, fo­cus, at­ti­tude and good times that led to Ali­son Ni­cholas Walk­ing Tall.
