Overview

In the highly acclaimed bestseller A Good Walk Spoiled, John Feinstein captures the world of professional golf as it has never been captured before. Traveling with the golfers on the PGA Tour, Feinstein gets inside the heads of the game's greatest players as well as its struggling wannabes. Meet superstars like Nick Price, who nailed a fifty-foot putt at the seventeenth to win the British Open, and Paul Azinger, who marked his return from a bout with cancer with an emotional appearance at the Buick Open. Go behind the scenes for Davis Love III's unforgettable come-from-behind victory in the Ryder Cup. In golf, Feinstein eloquently relates, the line that separates triumph from disappointment is incredibly fine. "One week you've discovered the secret to the game; the next week you never want to play it again".

One of the best books about the PGA tour. Even if you are not a fan this is a good read.

I think this is the first of many Feinstein books that I have in my library, and I have come to believe that Feinstein is the best sports writer in the history of sports writing. Feinstein can make the most common details seem engaging. More importantly, he paints pictures of athletes not as idols or Gods, but as real people, with all the flaws and virtues than any of us have. This book is especially good in helping folks to better understand the turmoil that is the PGA Tour, and the pressures that these athletes have to deal with in trying to make a living at this frustrating game.
