It also provides portraits of leading golfers such as Nick Price, Tom Watson and Greg Norman, and of rising stars such as Paul Azinger. The author, a leading American sports journalist and radio commentator, discusses the players' private lives and examines the pressures of a high-profile sport with virtually no off-season, the intense competition to stay on the "money list", and the psychological dangers in a game in which a player's true opponent is always himself. John Feinstein has written for "Sports Illustrated", "The Washington Post" and "Sporting News", and is the author of "A Season on the Brink" and "Hard Courts".Hide synopsis

If you've ever dreamed of playing golf on the PGA Tour, or perhaps wondered what it's like to do so, this is the book that will allow you to do so vicariously. John Feinstien got as close as anyone "outside" the ropes will ever get while he toured with some of the best. He shares with us the glory, the tragedy, the misses and the makes of the world's best golfers as they live out their (and our) dreams.
A great read for any golfer, golf fan or even those who've never picked up a club.
