Wind back the clock to 1975 and witness perhaps one of golf's greatest moments--Nichlaus, Weiskopf, Miller in their primes battling mightily to wear Augusta's Green Jacket.

The author does a wonderful job of researching facts and really digs deep to give the reader a sense of what time was like back in 1975. The way he weaves the stories between the key players of the tournament, and how he even digs deep into some minor personalities, gives such a complete presenation of this historical event. Any sports fan, whether you play golf or not, will love this book.
