Details: Product Description Revered as the most prestigious tournament in golf, the Masters commands international attention, even among nongolfers. The first and second editions of The Masters: A Hole-by-Hole History of America’s Golf Classic took the unique approach of tackling Augusta National hole by hole. Each hole had its own chapter, with colorful stories on the greatest shots, biggest disasters, and most amazing events that took place on each. David Sowell returns to Augusta now with the third edition of The Masters, adding more history and updating each hole with additional stories of greatness and tales of woe for a new generation of golfers led by Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and Patrick Reed, as well as from an older guard represented by Bubba Watson, Adam Scott, and Sergio García. The legends of the Masters are in full force in this lively look at America’s golf classic. From Bobby Jones and Gene Sarazen to Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson to Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth, all the greatest Masters moments of the greatest—and not so great—golfers are here in one book. This third edition provides a rich historical view of the course where success breeds legends and where failure can haunt even the most brilliant golfer’s career.   Review “Sowell gives us the Masters in full flower.”— Booklist Source: Booklist “Every kind of book on the Masters that could be written had been written, until David Sowell came along. He takes a route previously not taken, giving each of the eighteen holes of Augusta National its own fifteen minutes of fame.”—Furman Bisher, the late legendary sports columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution who covered the Masters for more than sixty years Author: Furman Bisher “An entertaining read that enthusiasts will enjoy.”— Library Journal Source: Library Journal “We have always wondered why the Masters is a tradition unlike any other. David Sowell has an answer. . . . He covers the magical moments of the good, the grand, and the also-ran on a course that itself is a memorial to Bobby Jones.”—Sidney L. Matthew, author and producer of Life and Times of Bobby Jones Author: Sidney L. Matthew From the Author David Sowell has written about golf and golf history for numerous golf publications, including the United States Golf Association’s Golf Journal and Links Magazine.       About the Author David Sowell has written about golf and golf history for numerous golf publications, including the United States Golf Association’s Golf Journal and Links Magazine.
