Overview

When Phil Mickelson donned his first Green Jacket at the 2004 Masters, few thought it would be the only one he'd ever receive. In 2006, on Augusta National Golf Club's breathtaking course during the most watched golf tournament in America, he proved the masses right.

Now you can relive the suspense of the 2006 Masters in this special commemorative book—a must for Masters devotees and anyone with a love for the game. Filled with spectacular full-color photographs, the official 2006 Masters Annual celebrates both outstanding golf and the victory of a player whose popularity is matched only by his ability. Improvement in both Mickelson's game and preparation sealed the deal—making him a star to watch in future majors.

With 155 yards of key distance added this year to strengthen and maintain shot values, anticipation and excitement was in the air at Augusta. During the opening round, past Masters champion Vijay Singh posted a 5-under-par 67 under perfect conditions to lead. You'll see how Texan Chad Campbell gained a three-stroke lead over three players—two of them past champions—with a second-round 67.

Undaunted by the weather delays, Mickelson shot 70 and took a one-stroke lead over Campbell and Fred Couples into the final round. You'll relive the excitement as Mickelson, who visited the course 10 days before to map out his strategy, won his second Masters with an example of risk/reward golf at its finest—just what Bobby Jones intended Augusta National to be.

Complete with statistics on the Masters, as well as numerous sidebars with fascinating facts on the golfers, Tournament history, and quotes from the players, the 2006 Masters Annual is guaranteed to be a treasured memento in your library for many years to come.
