Sam (through Al Stump) tells the story of his rise from humble roots to become one of the world's great golfers. While Sam is far from humble in telling his tale, it is a great read - thoroughly entertaining. Story telling at its best that includes of many of the great names of the past during the early days of the pro tour.
