A Golf Story
By

Rating
Soon after its original publication in 1986, A Golf Story was heralded as one of the classics of golf literature. It is a book that intertwines three immortal subjects--Bobby Jones, Augusta National, and The Masters Tournament--into one compelling narrative. These three stories are inextricably linked; together they form a fascinating backdrop to an April drama that is unique in the annals of golf and that, like Jones himself, transcends sports. Using firsthand experiences with Augusta National and The Masters Tournament that date back to 1948, Charles Price spent three years weaving together this historic story. And, in an unprecedented move, Augusta National opened its guarded archives for his research, thereby making this book the first authorized history of both the club and the tournament. The golden thread of the saga, however, lies in Bobby Jones--the real Bobby Jones--with whom Price shared a remarkably close friendship. His firsthand knowledge of Jones's life, both on and off the course, is what truly makes this book unique.
