Best book I've ever read about a golf match. Well researched. Made it seem as if one right there watching. Also gave historical backgrounds of each golfer and their interactions with each other. I bought it because Byron Nelson was my favorite golfer from his era and I had heard about this match before and wanted to read a more detailed account. Would recommend reader go to the golf course's web site. It has the last 4 holes so one can visualize what the golfers were up against and where their shots landed.
As one who loves the game of golf, this was an entertaining read. Frost's writing style is a bit tedious, but if you can tolerate that, the story and interspersed background material on the principals are well worth it.
If you don't love golf rather deeply, there's no need to open this book.
