Ken Venturi S Life And His Longtime Career In Golf Have Been A Tale Of Triumph In The Face Of Adversity Growing Up In San Francisco, He Was Drawn To The Game For The Solitude It Offered, The Best Place For Him To Find Himself And His Dreams Though His Often Brilliant Career Was Prematurely Halted By Injuries, He Then Emerged As The Game S Greatest Ambassador Throughout An Unprecedented Broadcasting Career Getting Up Down Is The Story Behind Venturi S Captivating Rise And Fall And Rise Again To The Top Of The Golf World And An Inside Look At The Many Different Personalities Within That World. I really enjoyed this book I grew up listening to Venturi He was thick as thieves with Sinatra, Dean Martin, Joe DiMaggio, Bing Crosby, Mickey Mantle, among others back in the day Imagine what he saw hanging around with that crew. I read this book because Ryan left it laying around and it was about golf This guy was hard to bear.lots of ego It seemed like it was his effort to hang every person that had ever crossed him out to dry. 262 I liked this book a lot than I thought I would Easy read I would really like to see an amateur win the Masters.
