Not the Typical Sports Book
An excellent read about everything leading up to U.S. Open Week 2002 at Bethpage Black. If you want a summary of Thursday's through Sunday's rounds, you'll find it ... about 2/3 into the book. Don't make that a reason NOT to buy it. This is definitely not 'just a golf book' -- rather, one walks away with a great feel for the wide range of decisions, conflicts, politics, personalities, etc. behind the scenes. This book goes well beyond the golf that was actually played, offering tremendous insight regarding the management of the 2002 Championship.

More than just a "golf book". If all you want is
More than just a "golf book". If all you want is golf stories - Feinstein does lots better in his other books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
If you've ever wondered about putting on a major, US, golf event - you won't have many questions as to what it takes after reading this! Maybe for some, information overload, but again, if you have any inkling to what goes on behind the scenes, you are going to not put this down.
Not to say there aren't any golf personalites and stories, they are in there too. But the scope of the things going on around them, the thought that goes into making it an event for them, shoot, THEY might get some insight by reading this too!!
