"If only the world would ask where I get my strength from, how I endure such hard times and still remain so content."
This is the long-awaited autobiography of one of the true greats of international golf.
Bernhard Langer is possibly the most admired golfer still playing at the very top of the professional circuit. His extraordinary talent, consistency and resilience have kept him at the peak of the game for two decades and have seen him outlast most of his contemporaries by winning European tour events more than twenty years after his first victory.
His fascinating story is one of conquering adversity. Despite growing up in Germany, where golf is a minority sport, his single-minded determination raised him to become World Number One. His obstacle-strewn path to the top is perhaps most famously illustrated by his struggle to overcome the "yips" - putting problems that more than once dogged his career. "My putting was so bad that people were coming to watch me, but in the manner of people who to go motor-racing to see a crash!"
But Bernhard Langer is a man of belief and perseverance, driven to excellence. In this book he talks candidly about this successes and failures, the faith that inspired him and what he future might hold for the sport's most enduring figure.
