The Masters golf tournament weaves a hypnotic spell. Success at Augusta National breeds legends, while failure can overshadow even the most brilliant of careers. But as Curt Sampson, author of the bestseller Hogan, reveals in The Masters, a cold heart beats behind the warm antebellum facade of this famous Augusta course. The Masters is an amazing slice of history. Sampson takes us inside the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower, Augusta's most famous member. He explores the relationships between races, between Southerners and Northerners, between rich and poor-with such characters as famous soul musician James Brown, the great boxer Beau Jack, and Frank Stranahan, the only white professional golfer ever banned from the tournament. Club and tournament founder Clifford Roberts, who killed himself on the grounds two decades ago, still seems to run the place from his grave. An elusive and reclusive figure, Roberts pulled the strings that made the Masters one of the greatest golf tournaments in the world. Roberts's relationship with presidents, power brokers, and the great golf champions of the time-Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer, and Jack Nicklaus, to name a few-are brought to light in this spellbinding portrait of a tournament unlike any other.

The 1960 US Open Golf Championship played at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colorado, remains perhaps the most dramatic, competitive, and passionate of all US Open championships. In 1960, the young lions of the game were eager to reach the top-tier occupied by venerable players such as Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. In this championship game, only a single stroke separated the three leaders-Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, and a young but talented amateur named Jack Nicklaus-on the final two holes. The stunning conclusion would prove to be a watershed in the lives of all three players and in the game itself. Golf's Greatest Championship recounts that fateful game-from the 8:00 a.m. first-round tee-off to the finish-bringing alive a near-mythic moment in modern golf. Along for the journey are some of the greatest players of the time, including Sam Snead, Gary Player, Ken Venturi, Tommy Bolt, Billy Casper, Julius Boros, Bob Rosburg, Dow Finsterwald, Gene "e;the Machine"e; Littler, and Art Wall. Golf's Greatest Championship is a suspenseful, richly detailed chronicle of this epic chapter in the game of golf.
The Augusta National Golf Club, founded in 1933 and home to the prestigious Masters Tournament, is an American icon shrouded in intrigue. Co-designed by legends Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie, Augusta boasts gorgeous fairways and perfectly manicured greens, set against a breathtaking backdrop of azaleas and pines. Behind the wondrous scenes and memorable tournament play resides a secretive and exclusive clan, marked with scandal and invested with the social power to make or break a man's rise to glory. Journalist and novelist Steve Eubanks has used all of his investigative and storytelling talents to get to the heart of Augusta's turbulent history, including its 44-year rule under the iron fist of Cliff Roberts and his suicide on the club's grounds; the Masters' impetuous yet long-standing relationship with CBS; allegations of racism; and the club's countless, rigid rules. With 45 inspiring photographs, Eubanks's balanced account also captures the historic moments that evoke deep affection for Augusta, from Dwight Eisenhower teeing off in the days before the Masters was televised to Jack Nicklaus's emotional victory at age 46, 23 years after he won his first green jacket. With a new chapter on Tiger Woods's 1997 triumph and published just in time for the 1998 Masters, Augusta is essential reading for anyone who wants the complete story of American golf's most hallowed ground.
New York Times BestsellerThe first time they met, at an exhibition match in 1967, Tom Watson was a seventeen-year-old high school student and Jack Nicklaus, at twenty-seven, was already the greatest golfer in the world. Though they shared some similaritiesthey were both Midwestern boys who had learned how to play golf at their fathers country clubsthey differed in many ways. Nicklaus played a game of consummate control and precision. Watson hit the ball all over the place. Nicklaus lacked charm and theatrics, and he was thoroughly despised by most golf fans because he had displaced Arnold Palmer as king of the golf world. Watson was one of those Arnold Palmer fans. Yet over the next twenty years their seemingly divergent paths collided as they battled against each other again and again for a place at the top of the sport and drove each other to ever-soaring heights of accomplishment. Spanning from that first match through the Duel in the Sun at Turnberry in 1977 to Watsons miraculous near-victory at Turnberry as he approached sixty, and informed by interviews with both players over many years, The Secret of Golf is Joe Posnanskis intimate account of the most remarkable rivalry and (eventual) friendship in modern golf.

For casual and dedicated golfers alike, a better short game provides one of the ultimate pleasures of the gamea pleasure they will come to know by training their minds to The Unstoppable Golfer.
