5.0 out of 5 stars Triumph of a Q School book, 19 Jun. 2008
By 
This review is from: Golf on the Edge: Triumph and Tragedies of Q School (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed John Feinstein's books on the PGA Tour and Qualifying Schools, but GOLF ON THE EDGE takes the idea to a whole new dimension.

Instead of just reporting on who qualified and who didn't from the 2007 PGA Tour School, the author looks at the stories behind seven of the players involved in the process.

These are real people with mortgages and lives outside of the golf course like you and I. Tiger Woods is in one world, we all live in the other. And so do the likes of Sion Bebb and Andrew Raitt who aspire to be just like Tiger.

This is a magnificent book and one that will lead me to not just follow the careers of these seven players from now on, but also to take a look further down the leaderboard of all events on the European Tour.

In terms of birdies, pars and bogeys in golf books, this is a driver, 6-iron on the green and 20 foot putt for eagle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for any golf fan, 17 Oct. 2009
By 
This review is from: Golf on the Edge: Triumph and Tragedies of Q School (Hardcover)
I had been looking to get a book about European Q School for a while so when this came up i was delighted. Having read books on the PGA tour Q school i hoped this would offer a different angle. I was not dissapointed. This ranks up there with the best golf books i've ever read. All the main players featured have the same dream, but personal circumstances are all different. Those literally living a hand to mouth existence to pursue the dream to Club Pros with steady jobs and comfortable earnings putting it all on the line to make it to the tour. Unlike those players who fail to make it to the PGA tour in the U.S. but can still earn easy $200,000 on the nationwide tour, these guys know there is no such luxury. Fail at Q School with no job to fall back on and they will struggle. Quite simply a fantastic read, one which i struggled to put down. I found myself rooting for all the players featured and since i've read the book i've tried to follow their progress after 2007 such is the impact that reading their stories has had.
