The annual PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament is one of the most grueling competitions in any sport. Every fall veterans and talented hopefuls sweat through six rounds of hell at Q-School to get a shot at the PGA Tour, vying for the thirty available slots. If you don’t make it through Q-School, you’re not on the PGA tour.

John Feinstein tells the story of the players who compete for these coveted positions in the 2005 Q-School. With arresting accounts from the players, established winners, rising stars, the defeated, and the endlessly hopeful, America’s favorite sportswriter unearths the inside story behind the PGA Tour’s brutal all-or-nothing competition.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Revealing insights…it will certainly make you laugh.

    Irish Times

  • “This book has a brilliant beermat proposition at its core: what is it like to have your financial future entirely dependent on hitting a ball into a hole with a stick from three feet away. That is what faces those participating in Q School.” 

    Daily Telegraph

  • “What makes this account so compelling is the way Feinstein drives home the point recreational golfers know all too well: golf is, above all, a humbling, even humiliating, game.”


  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ryan | 2/20/2014

    " It sucks to read a book about golf in the middle of winter. This was a pretty good look at Q School, how it works, and what the pressure is like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dale | 2/13/2014

    " I love golf and have read several books in the past including Feinstein's "A Good Walk Spoiled". I couldn't put my finger on it but just couldn't finish this book. Perhaps it was the way he went back and forth between the lives of so many golfers and keeping them all straight. In fact their stories seemed repetitive and frequently all too similar. "

    " Not so bad, unless you've already read Q School Confidential by Dave Gould (pub in 1999) where John Feinstein seems to have plucked all of his anecdotes. Hasn't anything happened differently to anyone new at Q School in the past 7 years? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Noah | 2/6/2014

    " This book is surprisingly entertaining, although a little scattered. The constant barrage of stories about tragic collapses and miracle comebacks is draining. If you have any interest in professional golf, this is worth reading, but otherwise don't even think about it. "
