Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615458793, Paperback)

Once called The Most Powerful Person in Golf, former PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman transformed the Tour into the success story it is today. Using never-before-seen documents and candid interviews with hundreds of players, associates, and corporate chieftains, the book offers an intimate portrait of Beman's shift from hardened competitor to an executive of change, who inherited a Tour that owned as its largest capital asset an IBM typewriter. Golf's Driving Force discloses how during his 20-year tenure Beman transformed a loosely-knit association of tournaments into the envy of the sports world. Discover how Beman survives a coup led by Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, conceives the TPC network of courses, and orchestrates deals that made the Tour one of the most successful enterprises in sports.
