Mentored by the King: [Hardcover]
Arnold Palmer's Success Lessons for Golf, Business, and Life
Product Description: ‘Arnold Palmer helped me become a better man, a more devoted husband, loving father, effective coach, and successful business executive.’ Most people think of Arnold Palmer as the King of Golf. But for more than a quarter century, Brad Brewer has known and observed Palmer in the roles of employer, business partner, teacher, competitor, father, grandfather, philanthropist, and global celebrity. Above all, Arnold Palmer is Brad’s friend and mentor, a man whose character both on and off the links has taught Brad how to be a winner in life at large as well as at golf. Now Brad passes on the wisdom that he and others have learned from the King of Golf. Mentored by the King shares with you the true stories of other golfers who have competed with Palmer through the years, as well as Brad’s personal accounts of traveling, working, and just hanging out with Arnold. Best of all, though, this book lets you learn from the winning attitude and approach of the Legend, Arnold Palmer, in golf, business, and life.

– Some deceptively simple principles that can change your life
– The magnetic attraction of excellence
– The power of an optimistic outlook
