The Moe Norman Story has just released a second edition that features new photos, 43 first-person Moe stories and more details of the last 10 years of his life. The original, published in 1995, has been expanded to 336 pages. The second edition is published by Brown Books of Dallas. “After his death in 2004, I felt compelled to update Moe’s story to put his life in perspective, explore his legacy and to properly document the last 10 years of his life when many wonderful and sad things happened to him,” said O’Connor. “There were many parts of Moe’s life that were not fully explored in the first edition, notably his spiritual side, as well as his long-overdue recognition as one of the game’s greats, his relationship with Titleist, his struggle with heart disease, and indeed, my own relationship with him. I felt that we could learn a lot more about Moe and from him—especially how he persevered in a frightening world that treated him harshly. He was an under-appreciated genius who left an incredible legacy.”
