This is a great documentary which just doesnt seem long enough. Its only 48mins in length and honestly they could've made it 1hr 48mins as theres so much great material there to be mined. I was 10 when this masters took place and to my eternal regret I didnt watch it live at the time. The world cup was taking place in mexico that year and all my energy was focused on that and nothing else. I've always heard people remark on how the '86 masters was the best they've ever seen so I was delighted to find a documentary that told the story. Theres some great footage here, not just of '86 but of the 1980 US open, the '75 masters('63,65,66, & 72 are in there aswell). Interviews with Ken venturi, jim nantz, Greg Norman, Ernie els and Gary player, plus naration by Jack's son Jack jnr, who was on the bag that day.
Watching this documentary you really do get a feeling for how it was that day and it was magic. The weather was perfect, the course as usual looks beautiful and the galleries were electric with the growing anticipation of what was taking place. Jack himself was emotional on the inside but calm on the outside. some of the shots he played on that back 9 were phenomanel. It wasnt a case of him fluking a win or being lucky at 46 yrs of age, he won that tournament through brilliance and that makes it even more exceptional.
The only gripe I have about this dvd is that at the very begining jack gives an intro that involves a pretty disgraceful promotion of a sponsor. Its just a bit too much corporate sell out for my liking.
