Item description for Jimmy Demaret: The Swing's the Thing by John Companiotte...

Jimmy Demaret: The Swing's the Thing tells this champion's fascinating and untold life story.

Jimmy Demaret was the first golfer to win three Masters, with victories in 1940, 1947, and 1950. His total of 31 wins on the PGA Tour still ranks him among the top 15 golfers in total wins. These records established Demeret's prominence in golf from the mid-1930s through the 1980s and led to his work as the host of All-Star Golf and Shell's Wonderful World of Golf. An exuberant character, Demaret was known for his flamboyant attire and famous friends. In the year 2000, both Golf Magazine and Golf Digest named him one of the most important players ever in the game.

This book includes photos of Demaret and his friends Ben Hogan, Bing Crosby, and Bob Hope, as well as rare images from throughout his career.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jimmy Demaret: The Swing's the Thing?

Book falls short of Demaret's stature  Jan 17, 2005
Demaret was one of the most vivacious, colorful, beloved characters in the history of golf. I expected the book to be as much. Instead, it rambles here and there, with too few quotes and stories and too much history of secondary characters in Demaret's life. All in all, it fell short of my expectations. It lacked wit, humor and a behind-the-scenes account of Demaret's life.

If you want a step-by-step history of his life, this book is it. The author does his homework with the stats and facts. Unfortunately, the wit and life falls short.
Great find  Nov 16, 2004
I received this book as a gift and actually ended up enjoying it, although I never had much interest in the life of the legendary player, Jimmy Demaret. This book takes you along on his journeys and it takes you inside the memories of him from his fellow golfing pals. Takes you play-by-play to every win, lose or draw of his career.
