Overview

For years Phil Mickelson symbolized the classic runnerup
in the golf world, always placing near the top of
every tournament, always near the top of the money
list, but never reaching the pinnacle of winning one of
the Majors. Then finally, on one magical Sunday, Phil's
dream came true as he sank an 18-foot putt on the 18th
hole to win the 2004 Masters. Mickelson leapt into the
air in total celebration--and an entire nation of golfing
fans leapt in joy with him. ONE MAGICAL SUNDAY
journeys hole-by-hole with Phil on that fateful day,
weaving the story of his life into the game--from his
introduction to golf at the age of three to starting a
family and pro golf career.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It was one of golf's incandescent moments: Phil Mickelson crouching over the ball on the 18th hole, then sinking a 20-foot putt to win the 2004 Masters tournament, the first major title in his career. In One Magical Sunday, he recounts that historic triumph, hole-by-hole, but in a most unusual, yet characteristic way. True to form, Mickelson mixes human interest with golf shots, insights about life with notes about club selection. This charming, companionable book tells us what golf is at its best.
Kirkus Reviews
The joyous telling of a great golf win, from one of the sport's most admired figures. No one had ever doubted the quality of Mickelson's game, but despite the fact that he'd won dozens of times on the PGA tour, he had yet to win a major championship. This was more a concern of golf scribes and fans than of Mickelson, who was very happy making a handsome living doing what he loved-namely, whacking a small, dimpled ball about groomed landscapes. Here, with the polishing hand of Phillips, he chronicles his spectacular 2004 Masters win, hole by hole, allowing golf aficionados an extended scrutiny into the head of a golfer at the top of his game. As he recounts that final round, he takes readers into his life: Mickelson is a G-rated guy, but he carries it off with charm. His family comes first, ever and always, and his marriage and the birth of his children take up equal, and delightful, page space with his golfing exploits. So, too, do the words of his mother and father, his wife and children, his coaches and friends, who get extended boxed quotes as Mickelson goes about his game. Who could possibly sneer at Mickelson's happy childhood, with a father who emphasized the fun of the game? Readers can only marvel that the golfer might be thinking about solar eclipses, spiral galaxies, or that shots made him think about musical composers-"That's a wedge. That's Mozart." But he also appreciates the level of the competition, bemoaning a shot that "falls about an inch short and rolls down into the bunker" after having traveled 200 yards. Mickelson is a freewheeling charger, taking chances because that's where happiness resides, though he's aware that a million practice strokes paid his dues. Aluminous story of a golfer having a fine old time and, for duffers, an instructive study of playing Augusta.
