'Shipnuck cuts to the intrigue of an acrimonious story that still twists and turns with snake-like flexibility'Â -â The Times
'A terrific read'Â -Â Sports Illustrated
Alan Shipnuck, theÂ New York TimesÂ bestselling author ofÂ Phil, returns with a major new work of insider reporting on the battle for the soul of professional golf between the PGA Tour and the Saudi-funded LIV Golf League.
Over the past two years, professional golf has been at war, and Alan Shipnuck is our most trusted correspondent. Following closely on the heels of his New York Times bestselling sensation,Â Phil, Shipnuck turns to LIV Golf's controversial - and belligerent - storming of the professional golf world.
InÂ LIV and Let Die, Shipnuck delivers the inside story in real time, with fly-on-the-wall reporting from the yachts where LIV was hatched and within the corridors of power as the PGA Tour flailed to fend off the threat. Shipnuck has travelled seamlessly between both tours - having countless conversations with players, caddies, CEOs, agents, financiers, lawyers, flaks, fans, and Instagramming wives - to deliver a no-holds-barred account of the most chaotic moment in golf history. Anyone who has a stake in professional golf lined up for an interview with Shipnuck - because they knew everyone else was talking to him, too.The disruption to an old, proud sport was largely conducted in the shadows, butÂ LIV and Let DieÂ delivers numerous revelations about what really happened, and why. It also provides the previously unknown background and crucial context to understand the armistice between the tours that shocked the world in June 2023.
Long known as the most fearless writer on the golf beat, Shipnuck has delivered another hotly anticipated book packed with juicy nuggets and in-the-room-where-it-happened action... think Bob Woodward moonlighting on the sports desk.Â LIV and Let DieÂ is the definitive account of the biggest (non-Tiger) golf story this century and a lively page-turner that in places reads like a spy thriller.
