    Professional golf is the most remorseless of sports, unique in the complexity of its demands. Technical perfection must be produced in short, concentrated bursts of synchronised movement. Huge mental strength is required.

    Why, then, do we know so little about what it takes to succeed - even survive - at the highest level?

    What separates the good from the great? What are the rituals of preparation and execution?

    How does an elite team come together?

    In a truly groundbreaking exposé of professional golf, Michael Calvin and Thomas Bjorn - captain of the 2018 European Ryder Cup Team - capture the distinctive nature of the game, and the principles and philosophies of players who dominate the world rankings. With unprecedented access to the European Tour players, and in-depth interviews with the European Ryder Cup team, Calvin reveals a sport which operates entirely within the finest margins of excellence.

In 2018, Bjørn became the first Danish Ryder Cup Captain when he lead Europe to a famous, unforgettable victory at Le Golf National, Paris. Highly regarded as one of the European Tour’s greatest players, he has claimed fifteen European Tour titles to date. He came through the Challenge Tour by winning four titles on his way to topping the Rankings in 1995, and remains a strong supporter of the developmental tour. Bjørn became the first Danish Ryder Cup player in history in 1997, before appearing in the biennial contest twice more in 2002 and 2014 - experiencing victory on all three occasions. Appointed Chairman of the European Tour’s Tournament Committee in 2007, he stepped aside in 2016 in order to focus on his duty as Ryder Cup Captain.
