Alison Nicholas, MBE, is one of Great Britain’s most successful golfers. In a professional career spanning more than 20 years, she claimed 18 tournament wins including the British Open, topped the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit and, in 1997, won the most prestigious championship in golf – the US Open. Her aggregate ten-under-par total was, at the time, the lowest recorded in the history of the championship and led to her becoming The Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year, and the LET Players' Player of the Year.
In turn, Alison is well known for her Solheim Cup exploits. She played in six, and captained the European team to a famous victory at Killeen Castle in 2011. Images of the team celebrating in front of the windswept castle have become iconic.
In this candid and entertaining book, Alison explores her years on both the LET and LPGA Tours, the ups and downs, her tournament records, her faith, and – of course – the Solheim Cup. Filled with anecdotes from the other side of the ropes, behind-the-scenes insights, and images from her private photo collection, the book charts the hard work, focus, attitude and good times that led to Alison Nicholas Walking Tall.
