Title: A Life In The Game • Author: Eddie Merrins with Mike Purkey Atria Books • $30.00 Cdn (hard cover).
Sometimes you can tell a lot about a book by who writes the forward. In “A Life In The Game”, Byron Nelson highlights a relationship with author Eddie Merrins that dates back to 1949. He refers to Merrins ‘as an accomplished a PGA Golf Professional as I have ever known’. And after reading this book it’s easy to see why.

As a player, he played in over 200 PGA Tour level events including eight U.S. Opens. His resume as a teaching pro includes stops at some of the most venerable courses in the U.S.: Merion, Westchester and Rockaway Hunt among them. He has been included on Golf Digest’s teaching panel, coached the UCLA Golf Team to a national championship (alumni include Corey Pavin, Steve Pate and Duffy Waldorf) and produced the acclaimed “Swing the Handle” golf book in 1973 and subsequent instructional videos. As the head professional at the Bel-Air Club in Los Angeles since 1962, he has rubbed shoulders with people as varied as Dean Martin to Hugh Grant to a 14-year old Tiger Woods.
