- My interest in golf was nil until Tiger Woods grabbed media attention, years ago. I wish I’d known about Lord Byron Nelson, though. Tiger could take lessons in living a great life from this gentle man with the competitive heart of a lion.
Byron Nelson’s accomplishment include several world records such as eleven PGA wins in a row and eighteen wins for that year (1945). He won a total of fifty-four tournaments during his career. Thirty times he placed in the top ten of golf players and also received a Congressional Gold Medal for his humanitarian services. However, he’s probably far more famous for the respect and love he lavished on every person he met.
This book, by his second wife, Peggy (they married five years after Byron’s first wife, Louise died), is a tribute to this man as a friend to thousands, a romantic husband and an optimistic lover of life. The book has color pictures in the centerfold and a CD by Byron reliving his record streak of 1945.
Author Peggy Nelson also assisted Byron in writing his autobiography, How I Played the Game. She lives in Texas on the ranch she and Byron shared during their twenty years of marriage before his death at age ninety two.
