Sports broadcaster Ann Liguori presents lessons and wisdom from the legends of golf in her new book, Life on the Green, recently released by Hatherleigh Press. Liguori gained fascinating insights into legends like Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam, and Tom Watson from interviews she conducted with the legends during her long career in sports broadcasting on WFAN-NY and the Golf Channel. Nearly every one of the superstars competed — and many of them won — PGA and LPGA events in Westchester over the years.

The conversations on which the book is based are totally unfiltered, a mark of Liguori’s knowledgeable and insightful interviewing style. The author takes the reader beyond the stock answers and worn-out anecdotes that fill most sports interviews. Whether it’s discussing the history of race in the game with Renee Powell or getting Padraig Harrington to discuss the LIV Tour and its impact on the sport, Liguori doesn’t hesitate to ask difficult questions to reveal interesting answers.

The dozen golf champions who sat for personal interviews for the book were among the top names in the game. Amy Alcott, Ben Crenshaw, Padraig Harrington, Bernhard Langer, Nancy Lopez, Jack Nicklaus, Dottie Pepper, Gary Player, Renee Powell, Annika Sorenstam, Jan Stephenson, and Tom Watson shared not only tips for performing at the highest level in golf, but the lessons they’ve learned about life as well.
