Overview

Peer beyond the high, thick hedges of Augusta National Golf Club for an intimate, entertaining glimpse of the classic cathedral that is home to golf's most venerable, unique event. In this newly-revised edition of Tales from Augusta’s Fairways, Jim Hawkins and Robert Hartman capture all the power and passion that have inspired golfers to flock to Georgia for generations. From Gene Sarazen's 1935 double-eagle that put Augusta National on the map, to Tiger Woods's Grand Slam victory in 2001, from the tragic collapses of Greg Norman and Jordan Spieth to the heart-warming story of Jose Maria Olazabal, Tales from Augusta’s Fairways takes an inside look at a course that has changed the game. Readers will share the dream with Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts, walk the green with Jack Nicklaus, take a swing with Arnold Palmer, and putt with thousands of hopefuls who have made the Masters the most revered, most prestigious golf tournament in the world. Without a doubt, this is a must-have for any golf fan.

About the Author

Jim Hawkins covered his first Masters in 1968, just in time to see Roberto De Vicenzo sign his infamous, erroneous scorecard. And he was on duty when Tiger Woods completed his asterisked Grand Slam. He is the author of books on former Detroit Tigers stars Al Kaline, Mark “The Bird” Fidrych, and Ron LeFlore, as well as the Detroit Tigers Encyclopedia.

Robert Hartman graduated from Hillsdale College in 1985, where he was captain of the Hillsdale golf team. After receiving his master’s degree from Hollins University he began his career as a successful freelance writer. He now resides in Roanoke, Virginia.
