John Feinstein spent 1993 and 1994 on the PGA Tour, walking courses with Greg Norman, Nick Price, Tom Watson, Tom Kite, and other golf giants, and his book is a stunning revelation of all that goes into the game at its highest levels.
This is the first book about golf that takes us past the ropes, into the locker room, inside the golfers' lives, and even inside their heads. Feinstein reveals the astounding tension at the top, where even the world's most renowned golfers find the sport an elusive mystery. He illuminates the inconceivable pressure of staying on form in a game in which last year's star often becomes this year's casualty. He examines the do-or-die pressure on nonstar players fighting for a spot on tour at the annual Qualifying School, and he reveals some of the private side of the game's pressures - how much players come to hate the grind of the tour and the toll it can take on family life.
Most of all, in tournament after tournament, Feinstein shows the compelling drive of champions, men who work endlessly on every nuance of their game, honing the finer elements that help them explode occasionally into flawless, inspired play.
