Acclaim for It's Only a Game "Easily the best golf instructional-type book since Harvey Penick's Little Red Book. . . . This book is a classic."--Bud Shrake, coauthor Harvey Penick's Little Red Book"Jackie is a warrior. He is a born competitor who meets every challenge head on, on and off the golf course. His values and integrity are unassailable, as pure as those of any man I've known."--Ben Crenshaw"This book is pure Jackie, and I hope that from reading it you get some of the fulfillment and enjoyment he's given to me and others over the years."--Steve Elkington
