CALVIN PEETE Golf's Forgotten Star

by | Read by Jaime Lincoln Smith

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Jaime Lincoln Smith skillfully narrates this long overdue biography. Smith's relaxed pacing, rich tone, and understated swagger embody Calvin Peete, one of the best Black golfers in history. This fascinating audiobook takes listeners from Peete's early days as the child of migrant laborers with limited opportunities for education to his incredible success in the PGA despite his physical challenge (a permanently bent left elbow) and the PGA's well-documented racial discrimination. Golf fans will enjoy the wealth of information detailing Peete's extraordinary golf skills and his ten-year career on the PGA tour (1976 to 1986). All listeners will find themselves captivated by the rags-to-riches profile of a man who inspired the masses by overcoming tremendous odds with grace, grit, and integrity.
