USA Today Bestseller
Now available in trade paper Jack Nicklaus II, son of PGA Champion Jack Nicklaus, shares stories, insights, and lessons he has learned from his father, the Golden Bear, that will encourage fathers and inspire us to focus on what's most important in life: family.
Best Seat in the House, written with New York Times bestselling author Don Yaeger, gives us eighteen valuable lessons that Jack Nicklaus II learned from his father, PGA champion Jack Nicklaus. Widely regarded as the best golfer of all time with a record number of PGA major championships, the Golden Bear's life and values show that true legacy lives on through our families.
Jack II has always had a clear view of who his father is. "I had the best seat in the house, to watch this man, when away from the public's eye, live out extraordinary lessons."
Best Seat in the House details what made Jack Nicklaus an off-course success
- a lasting marriage: Jack and his wife Barbara fashioned fifty-plus years of marriage with the rule that each must give of themselves "at least 95 percent of the time,"
- treating others with respect: Nicklaus taught his son Jack, who worked as his caddie for several years, to value his competitors and treat them as he would hope to be treated,
- choosing family over work: the importance of having boundaries and limits that everyone in the family agrees on, and
- building a legacy: the need to be connected to what we'll leave behind.
A perfect gift for Father's Day and for the serious fans, the casual golfers, or even those new to golf, you can learn lessons from the Golden Bear in Best Seat in the House...and can apply all eighteen of them even if you're nowhere near a golf course.
