Oliver Cathey, AKA Rick Limmer, retired from a 40 year career as an Operations Research Analyst to play golf at PGA West in La Quinta, CA. Rick believes that a little levity makes for an easy read and makes technical points stick a little easier in your head. In this, his second book about golf, Rick writes about the course management skills that can immediately cut 10 strokes off the scores of high handicap golfers. If you’re a high handicap golfer, this book will show you how going for bogey will get you bogey when going for par gets you doubles and triples. It will show you how to stay out of trouble and how to get out cleanly when you get in trouble anyway. This book will not fi x your swing. It’s aimed at fi xing your game. The author’s Bogey Golfer Solution is demonstrated by examples on two famous golf courses at PGA West, the Arnold Palmer course you see on TV during the Humana Classic and on the PGA West Stadium course that people come from all over the world to play.

In 1962, following two losing seasons, Coach John McKay was fighting for his job. The 1962 team was undersized but smart quick and tough. Although underdogs in four games, including the Rose Bowl, the Trojans finished with an 11-0 record and defeated Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl and become national champions. Although the 1962 Trojans were the least talented of Coach McKay's four national championship teams, their success enabled USC to once again become a football power. You'll meet the players from this team and learn about their joys and sorrows as well their successes and failures. The team included tempestuous end "Prince" Hal Bedsole, who still holds USC's season and career records for most yards per reception. Fleet Willie Brown, whose clutch plays on offense and defense preserved an undefeated season. Fiery Trojan captain Marv Marinovich, whose athletic techniques have become legendary, and Fred Hill, whose daughter, Kim, became the inspiration for the Ronald McDonald House.

Experience the thrill, twenty-five years later, of Steve Scott's epic finals match against Tiger Woods in the 1996 United States Amateur Championship! In August of ‘96, Steve Scott went head to head against Tiger Woods at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in the finals of the US Amateur Championship. Five thousand three hundred forty-five players whittled down to two. Scott found himself a surprising 5-up after the first 18, but at hole 35 Tiger squared the grueling match with an improbable 40-foot birdie putt. With the result coming down to the last hole, the difference in the outcome actually came earlier, when Scott reminded Woods to move his mark back to its rightful place on hole 34. Had Scott not done the morally correct thing, Tiger would have been penalized and, in turn, not have won three straight U.S. Amateur Championships (something not even the great Jack Nicklaus or legendary Bobby Jones had done), forever changing the course of Tiger’s career and golf history. In Hey, Tiger—You Need to Move Your Mark Back, Scott teams up with esteemed storyteller Tripp Bowden to explain, twenty-five years later, what led to that life-changing moment and to describe, in his own words, the exhilaration of that ‘96 U. S. Amateur Championship and how it ultimately changed golf history and the two competitors' lives. Forever. Hey Tiger—You Need to Move Your Mark Back is a story for the ages for golf fans looking for an unlikely new perspective on the greatest game in the world.

Released to the public for the first time, writings by the incomparable Barton Biggs Long considered one of the best brains on Wall Street, Barton Biggs acquired the stature of a legend within his lifetime. Among his many coups, he accurately called the rise and fall of the dot-com market, and was an energetic promoter of emerging markets, including China, well before American businesses began flocking there—and he made vast fortunes for his clients, in the process.

The product of a keen and broad-ranging intellect in full command of his subjects—and the English language—the letters compiled in this volume leave no doubt that Barton Biggs was one of the most interesting observers of Wall Street, the financial world, and the human comedy, ever to set pen to paper. Released from Morgan Stanley's archives and made public for the first time, the letters compiled in this volume add new luster to Biggs's reputation as a first-class finance author Address the most essential aspects of high-frequency trading, from formulation of ideas to performance evaluation Shares Biggs's fascinating insights and uncannily accurate predictions about an array of economic and financial topics, liberally peppered with historical references and wry humor Organized thematically, the letters showcase Barton Biggs's observations on finance, economics and the stock market, from 1980 to 2003

As the story unfolds a spoon, kitchen knife and spatula are dancing around like little children playing by themselves when Mom and Dad have left the house. It seems to be a fantasy at first but gains significance when the character, Mr. Hobbs, dreams of going to the beach, a departure from his usual way of life, just as his cooking tools had departed from their own ways in his absence. It is as though the flour that has been the principal ingredient in his life of baking cakes and cookies has succeeded in doing something to help him right away. He is given hope, which will help him to achieve a degree of independence.
