THE WICKED GAME:
Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and the Story of Modern Golf

'Fascinating....This is one of the most important sports books of recent seasons.'
Martin Brady, BookPage

Introduction

The Wicked Game is a triple biography: the story of the three giant figures of professional men's golf since the 1950s  - Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods - showing how the game has changed during their careers, with emphasis on the major championships, the business of golf, and the social history of a game that has been marred by discrimination.

The Wicked Game was first published in 2004 by Sidgwick & Jackson in the UK, and by William Morrow in the US, where the paperback edition has a slightly different title: The Wicked Game: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and the Business of Modern Golf (Perennial Currents, ISBN 0-06-051387-X).

The book has also been published in translation in South Korea (Chosun Daily Newspaper, ISBN: 89-7365-511-6).
