In his eleventh book, Tom Wishon looks over his career within the golf equipment industry, spanning nearly 50 years. Written in two distinctly different parts, the first sees Wishon share many fascinating, remarkable and often humorous personal experiences from years of working and travelling the world designing and researching golf clubs.
Wishon concludes the book in part 2 by revealing his insights about the design and performance of golf clubs learnt over many decades of hands on work creating more original golf club designs and performing more performance research than perhaps any person in the history of the game.
Chapters include stories of his experiences from professional associations and friendships with Harvey Penick, Payne Stewart, Larry Nelson, Arnold Palmer, numerous other tour pros, as well as the people and the factories engaged in the production of all the different parts of a golf club. From “The Car Antenna and the British Open Winner”, “Teaching Tech to the King”, “Coming This Close to Meeting Ben Hogan”, “How to Trade a Rolex for a Robot”, “Fitting a Past and Future President on the Same Day”, The Greatest Putter Harvey Ever Knew (which wasn’t Ben Crenshaw!) and many others, Wishon’s stories of his experiences are but a small testimony to an incredibly interesting and fascinating career in golf equipment.
