Product Description

Review

"In Moe & Me, Lorne Rubenstein gracefully interweaves his personal golfing journey with the life and playing career of Moe Norman. . . . Moe & Me is a satisfying addition to the lore on Canada's golfing genius." —National Post (April 7, 2012)


"In the hands of veteran Canadian golf scribe Lorne Rubenstein, Norman's life comes to the fore with respect and admiration." —GolfWeek (April 13, 2012)


"Through his personal accounts of Norman, Rubenstein paints an intimate portrait of a complex man." —GolfWorld (April 2012)


"For the last three decades, the only swings that PGA Tour players talked about with respect were Ben Hogan's and Moe Norman's. Lorne Rubenstein's sad and joyous book now guarantees that the pros will be talking about Moe for another thirty years." —Bradley S. Klein, Architecture editor, Golfweek


"Lorne Rubenstein grew up following in the fairy dust scattered by the incomparable Norman, and his lovely memoir of their friendship, Moe & Me, will move you by its deep understanding of this uniquely colorful man and his solitary genius." —James Dodson; author; American Triumvirate, Final Rounds, and The Modern Age of Golf


"Lorne Rubenstein depicts Moe Norman compassionately, from his quirky personality to his unusual swing. I count myself fortunate that I saw Moe with my own eyes, and that now, through Lorne's sensitive portrait, I can see him again." —Ben Crenshaw, 1984 and 1995 Masters champion


"Lorne spent a lot of time with Moe, and there's no better person to share his uniqueness. Golfers will enjoy reading about Moe and the people and game he influenced." —Mike Weir, 2003 Masters champion


"Lorne Rubenstein is one of the game's great historians as well as being a wonderful journalist. Moe Norman is arguably one of the most interesting men to play professional golf, and Lorne has captured him brilliantly." —Sean Foley, swing coach for Tiger Woods, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose and many others

Format: Paperback
I have had the privilege of playing several rounds with Moe Norman over his long career. I have constantly marvelled at his extraordinary physical talent and brillant analytical golf mind. Lorne Rubenstein has captured the essence of the Moe the golfer as well as Moe the person. Both are very difficult to successfully characterize since Moe was such an enigmatic player and individual --- he often spoke in elliptical phrases about the swing or course management , such that many players never really undestood his thinking. However,Rubenstein , having had the opportunity to be Moe's friend over several decades, got to understand and appreciate his brillance as a shot-maker. Finally, there is now a 'definitive' biography of one of the most well-known, but least ( until now) understood golfers of our time.

Fantastic book! As a long time golfer and reader of many works by Lorne Rubenstein, I was totally engrossed with his latest book. Personally, I think it may me his best effort to date. He presents a carefully researched and sympathetic portrait of one of the great figures of Canadian golf. There is insight into Moe Norman on every page, which only a true friend who had spent many hours with him over many years could provide. Along the way, we also learn more about the author who has always been a passionate supporter of Canadian golf. The definitive work on Moe Norman. Lovely.........

Just finished this Rubenstein masterpiece. I had the great pleasure of meeting Moe many times and experiencing first-hand his miraculous abilities. Of course, I never "knew" Moe -- until now. To have a glimpse into what made an enigmatic and complicated character like Moe tick adds much-needed colour to the mythology that has surrounded him all these years.
I highly recomend this book to anyone interested in golf, in dealing with adversity, or simply in the human condition.

What a great story of a very unusual man with a super natural gift of hitting golf shots. He makes each swing of the club effortless and gets the ball to where he wants it about 90% of the time. I'd be happy 50% of the time!!!
Way to go Moe you super ball striker!

My husband has played with Moe and still thinks he was the best ball stricker on record and nobody will take his place.
