Summary

For the last two decades, Sports Illustrated's golf beat has been anchored by John Garrity, a tall Midwesterner with a polished prose style and a droll sense of humor. In Tiger 2.0...and Other Great Stories from the World of Golf, a collection of his most sparkling pieces, Garrity applies his powers of observation and unrivaled imagination to every aspect of the Ancient Game. For "Past Tense", his classic profile of tour star Vijay Singh, Garrity flies to Fiji to ask that country's strongman dictator about the golfer's secret past. In "Home on the Range", Garrity takes us on a riotous tour of commercial driving ranges. In "Askernish Old", Garrity discovers a Scottish links course that emerges every spring, like Brigadoon, on a Hebridean sea meadow.

Tiger 2.0 it is not

After reading/ listening to "the big miss" I thought this may be a good follow on.
I was disappointed, nothing to do with tiger, very little to do with the pga tour.
If you want to listen to a guy talk about his travels and golf experiences, go to any clubhouse and listen the old guy in the corner about how good he was.
This is 8 hours or so of my life I will never get back.

Dated, but incredibly interesting

Although published in 2008, the way this book is written and put together, makes it a classic. It’s a wonderful listen and John Garrity is a true wordsmith. Certainly made me want to experience some of the off-the-beaten path courses he’s played. Worth a listen.
