Summary

Revered as the most prestigious tournament in golf, the Masters commands international attention, even among nongolfers. The first and second editions 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 most amazing events that took place on each.

David Sowell returns to Augusta now with the third edition of The Masters, adding more history and updating each hole with additional stories of greatness and tales of woe for a new generation of golfers led by Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and Patrick Reed, as well as from an older guard represented by Bubba Watson, Adam Scott, and Sergio Garcia.

The legends of the Masters are in full force in this 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 to Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth, all the greatest Masters moments of the greatest - and not so great - golfers are here in one audiobook. This third 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.

A Tough One to Follow

While the ideas of telling stories by the golf hole seemed like a good idea, the bouncing back and forth between different years of the tournament became difficult to follow. I liked the reader’s voice and cadence, but it was cringeworthy when he tried to do the voices of different golfers speaking.
