The Masters: A Hole-by-Hole History of America's Golf Classic by David Sowell

Revered as the most prestigious tournament in golf, the Masters commands international attention, even among nongolfers. The first edition of The Masters: A Hole-by-Hole History of America’s Golf Classic took the unique approach of tackling Augusta National hole by hole. Each hole had its own chapter, with colorful stories on the greatest shots, biggest disasters, and amazing events that took place on each.

David Sowell returns to Augusta now with the second edition of The Masters, adding more history and updating each hole with additional stories of greatness and tales of woe. He addresses Tiger’s continued dominance as well as how Phil Mickelson finally got over his majors hump in a major way. Sowell also discusses the changes that have been made to the course in an effort to make it more difficult and shows how those changes have affected play.

The legends of the Masters are in full force in this unique and lively look at America’s golf classic. From Bobby Jones and Gene Sarazen to Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, all the greatest Masters moments of the greatest golfers are here in one book. The Masters: A Hole-by-Hole History of America’s Golf Classic, Second Edition provides a rich historical view of the course where success breeds legends and where failure can haunt even the most brilliant golfer’s career.
