Arnie and Jack

Palmer, Nicklaus, and Golf's Greatest Rivalry

Surprisingly, one of sport’s most contentious, complex, and defining clashes played out not in the boxing ring or at the line of scrimmage but on the genteel green fairways of the world’s finest golf courses. Arnie and Jack. Palmer and Nicklaus. Their fifty-year duel, in both the clubhouse and the boardroom, propelled each to the status of American icon and pushed modern golf to the heights and popularity it enjoys today. Arnie was the cowboy, with rugged good looks, Popeye-like forearms, a flailing swing, and charm enough to win fans worldwide. Jack was scientific, precise, conservative, aloof, even fat and awkward. Ultimately, Nicklaus got the better of Palmer on the course, beating him in major victories 18-7. But Palmer bested Nicklaus almost everywhere else, especially in the hearts of the public and in endorsement dollars. By the end of this page-turning narrative, we see that each man wanted what the other had: Arnold wanted the trophies. Jack wanted the love. In the tradition of John Feinstein and Mark Frost, Ian O’Connor has written a compelling account of one of the greatest rivalries in sports history.

Sometimes I can't even hit the broadside of a barn? I never seem to get any better? Let renowned mental golf coach Rand Marquardt show you how he went from a frustrated, misaligned ten-handicap golfer to a more confident, connected one-handicap golfer in just one summer and how you can do it too! Don't spend another day being angry, afraid, or frustrated again.

Golf Journeys & Culture is a collection of golf trips to some of the most beautiful and interesting golf courses in the world. During an 8-year period, Andrew and Paul Marshall travelled to 13 countries and played 65 golf courses - from the wild, sheep-tended links of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, the tropical palm-fringed fairways of Jamaica to the lowest golf course on earth in Death Valley, California. Golf Journeys & Culture is about two brothers' connection and a shared passion to combine golf with travelling and experiencing different cultures. It is a book that goes beyond playing golf in fabulous locations, it is also about the experiences the two brothers shared, the people they met and the situations they found themselves in. From cheese-tasting in Normandy, relaxing in the surreal waters of Iceland's Blue Lagoon to observing how cigars are hand-crafted in the Dominican Republic - the off-course activities and cultural aspects of the countries they visited played an integral role in the creation of Golf Journeys & Culture. Golf Journeys & Culture will appeal in equal measure to both the armchair and travelling golfer. Each of the 13 chapters is illustrated with Paul's superb images, and has a fact file that provides an informative guide to planning your own golf journeys to the featured countries.

Garlic Capital of the World

Gilroy, Garlic, and the Making of a Festive Foodscape


Author: Pauline Adema

According to Pauline Adema, you smell Gilroy, California, before you see it. In Garlic Capital of the World, the folklorist and culinary anthropologist examines the role of food and festivals in creating a place brand or marketable identity. The author scrutinizes how Gilroy, California, successfully transformed a negative association with the pungent bulb into a highly successful tourism and marketing campaign. This book explores how local initiatives led to an iconization of the humble product in Gilroy. The city, a well-established agricultural center and bedroom community south of San Francisco, rapidly built a place-brand identity based on its now-famous moniker, "Garlic Capital of the World." To understand Gilroy's success in transforming a local crop into a tourist draw, Adema contrasts the development of this now-thriving festival with events surrounding the launch and demise of the PigFest in Coppell, Texas. Indeed, the Garlic Festival is so successful that the event is all that many people know about Gilroy. Adema explores the creation and subsequent selling of foodscapes or food-themed place identities. This seemingly ubiquitous practice is readily visible across the country at festivals celebrating edibles like tomatoes, peaches, spinach, and even cauliflower. Food, Adema contends, is an attractive focus for image makers charged with community building and place differentiation. Not only is it good to eat; food can be a palatable and marketable symbol for a town or region.
