about

Spotlighting Moe Norman, a golfer admired by Tiger Woods himself, this memoir by a sportswriter who knew Moe Norman for 40 years details Moe's unique and controversial life. The record investigates how, despite winning almost every title in Canada and having his name celebrated in golf circles around the globe, Norman failed to make a mark in the wider world of golf yet still referred to himself as “the happiest guy on two feet.” His uncommon swing, mannerisms, and lifestyle are explored, illustrating how he played very quickly, never took a practice swing, often repeated phrases when talking, and lived in motel rooms most of his life. Norman’s crippling insecurity and introversion are revealed, documenting how these conditions kept him from publicly succeeding at the highest levels of play. Penned by a sports journalist who knew the subject for 40 years, this study examines Moe Norman’s utterly exceptional technique, his character, how he lived his life well in spite of his significant handicaps, and what this most sensitive and peculiar man meant to those who knew him.

Moe Norman is arguably one of the most interesting men to play professional golf, and Lorne has captured him brilliantly." —Sean Foley, swing coach for Tiger Woods, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose and many others
