Left me wondering
I was really disappointed by this book and can't see myself reading it again. The Arnold Palmer connection to The Open has been written about so many times it doesn't need to be be rehashed here. The author's continual and tiresome use of the phrase 'years later...' or '25 years later...' left me wondering about the source of his information. Finally, he doesn't even begin to broach the subject of the 1977 Open until the reader is 3/4 of the way through the book. I was hoping for great things and new insights. This did not deliver either.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I highly recommend this book to anyone - regardless of whether they play golf or not. I am an infrequent golfer and never watch it on television (can you say boring) but was riveted by this book. Michael Corcoran does the almost impossible task of making golf exciting by weaving golf education, history and interesting anecdotes into the story of the 1977 British Open. After reading this book, I may actually watch the British Open on television this year!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
