Touching Greatness: Memorable Encounters with Golfing Legends

In almost thirty years as Ireland’s leading golf journalist, Dermot Gilleece has met, interviewed and dined with numerous heroes of the game.

Join Dermot on the course as he looks back over many wonderful years of golf with the greats – from Jack Nicklaus’ first game on Irish soil, to sympathetic accounts of the declining skills of iconic golfers such as Seve Ballesteros. Packed with stories and insights about legends from Gene Sarazen, Tom Watson and Tiger Woods to, of course, ’Himself’, Christy O’Connor Snr, Touching Greatness offers highlights from Dermot’s much-loved column in the Irish Times, as well as more recent observations on the game. There are unmissable insights into illustrious characters from the amateur game, women’s golf, Irish involvement in major team competitions like the Ryder Cup, and the history of Irish golfers in the Open, including the recent double from Padraig Harrington.

At turns moving and funny, and always beautifully written, Dermot’s tales bring you right onto the fairway as you soak up the very best stories from inside the world of competitive golf.”
