Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear; Ken Venturi was a promising young golfer from California with numerous amateur titles when he took of four-stroke lead into the final day of the 1956 Masters. Venturi's three-day ride had riveted the golf world because no amateur had ever won this prestigious event. Venturi, however, collapsed, finishing one stroke behind the winner. The press labeled him a choke--a moniker that stuck. Just when it looked as though a once promising career would be wasted, something amazing happened: Ken Venturi won the 1964 U.S. Open, stunning the golfing establishment and becoming the big story of the 1964 season Sadly, Venturi's comeback was short lived. He suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome, which ended his playing career and sent him into a career in which he would thrive: broadcasting. Venturi joined CBS and broadcast golf for 34 years--the longest television career in golf history--coming to be known as the Walter Cronkite of the game. Getting Up & Down is Ken Venturi's story in his own words. It includes an honest and compelling recap of his life and incisive and searing commentary on the game he loves and those who play it, including sections on his longtime friendships with giants such as Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, and Gene Sarazen--and his frosty relationship with Arnold Palmer.
