THE MASTERS by Tom Flaherty


Email this review


From 1934 thorough 1960, year by year, these accounts follow the ""richest tournament of them all"", the Masters, played on the Augusta National Course, and result in a single-line history of golf and topflight golfers. They develop, in the details of each year's games, the reason why this golfing event means so much to so many,- the beauty and challenges of the course, the enthusiasm and good manners of the spectators and the quality of play -- and players. The ""greats"" who have earned the right to be there and are therefore invited to compete are all here, in their triumphs as well as in their defeats; there are anxious moments of play and the building of the Masters ""tradition""; there are the purses won and the new names that have come along; and this review of golf's focal point should be a natural for those for whom the game and its masters are of enduring interest.
