This review is from: Moment Of Glory: The Year Tiger Lost His Swing and Underdogs Ruled the Majors (Paperback)
This is an enjoyable account of the major golf championships and of the men who won ( and narrowly lost) them in 2003. Following a period of dominance, during which he had won all 4 majors consecutively, Tiger Woods decided to change his swing and lost his form that year.

Step forward Mike Weir, Jim Furyk, Ben Curtis and Shaun Micheel to claim your first, and possibly only, major titles. Feinstein's account is highly readable. He has based the book on interviews with the players and their wives, along with numerous others, to create what are quite intimate portraits of their lives leading up to their moment of glory, and the life changing events which followed for the winners, as well as the what might have beens for those who nearly, but didn't quite, stand in their shoes.

The human drama of sport is here, along with the drama of the events themselves. John Feinstein is a fine journalist and writer and this rattles along. If you have read any the author's other golf books, you will rather know what to expect. it doesn't matter that the events are several years ago - the stories are still very engaging, if rather following the same writing formula as A Good Walk Spoiled: Days and Nights on the PGA Tourand Tales From Q School: Inside Golf's Fifth Major

An enjoyable read
