For lovers of golf, this is a must. Feinstein captures the drama and intensity of the game played by those at the top. In 1993 and 1994, Feinstein traveled the PGA Tour with Greg Norman, Nick Price, Tom Watson, Tom Kite, and other giants of the game. You'll relive Davis Love III's clutch performance to win the Ryder Cup, Nick Price's 50-foot putt on the 17th hole of the final round to win the British Open, and John Daly's upsetting allegations of drug use on the tour. The unending drive of champions who work endlessly on every nuance of the game will amaze you and, perhaps, inspire you on your next good walk around the links. Download and start listening now!

    " The authro follows several lessor known an.players,who struggle with Q school and the other chllenges facing the players who barely make a good living by playing professional golf. A good read for a golf fan "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 1/22/2014

    " Good read. Lots of names and dates. Left it in London. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 1/20/2014

    " The best book about golf and the professionals who play it - period. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 1/18/2014

    " Fascinating look at golf behind the scenes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/18/2014

    " A decent book about the PGA tour, and some of the backstory that those of us in the general public don't get to see. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 12/17/2013

    " Excellent insiders look at the ups and downs of the life on the PGA tour...The difference between success and failure might be, and often is, determined by a single stroke. Really good...Immediately grabs the reader. Obviously, best for sports/golf fans. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James Loftus | 11/10/2013

    " I just read this and it is pretty outdated. It has a few interesting stories about life on the tour, but beyond that not the greatest sports book or golf book, not one of Feinstein's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon Adams | 10/3/2013

    " recommended by the old boy. he still talks to me about the book and about how much he loves the tour. all stems from this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffery | 9/17/2013

    " I enjoyed the stories of the struggles to make the PGA tour the most in this book, but to be honest it suffers from the fact that it is based in the pre-Tiger Woods era. It's pretty obvious that the whole landscape of golf changed in 1996. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 4/27/2013

    " Feinstein could update this book every 5 years with new players, but the stories would be the same...hard work, frustration, occassional glory. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack Westfall | 12/21/2012

    " Gives unbelievable perspective into the everyday pressures of the pro golfer. Forget about Tiger and Phil, this highlights the guys that struggle to stay on the tour year after year. Awesome "

    " if you really like golf you can tolerate it. As a cohesive work of writing, this guy should stick to shorter works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diener | 2/23/2011

    " I read this book during my sportswriting days, which is also when I took up and retired (many times) from golf. This may have been the first Feinstein book I read (no, I never read his classic "A Season on the Brink"). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 1/23/2010
