An enthralling read. A real insight into life on the USPGA.,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Good Walk Spoiled: Days and Nights on the PGA Tour (Paperback)
For those who want to read and feel what goes on behind the scenes of the USPGA tour a book that is a must. It starts with the Ryder Cup in England in 1993. I still remember now watching Davis Love III beat Costatino Rocca on the 18th green at the Belfry and Love being swamped by his team mates whilst Rocca was left alone to ponder over what might have been. I felt then that Love should have pushed his team mates aside and sought out Rocca to shake his hand. He didn't. This book puts that matter right. Love sought him out and said 'It could have been me'. This book tells the stories behind the glare of the cameras. Paul Azingers come back after his treatment for cancer. His playing partners with tears in their eyes on the tee as he rejoined the tour after fearing he would never play again. The feeling of playing with John Daly surrounded by huge crowds and security men , and still playing the shot that was required to make the cut. The real pressure of trying to make it through Qualifying School. The tears, sadness, laughter and joy of just having the chance to play with the best. It is a book that I cannnot recommend highly enough for those who want more than just another book on how to play the game. Read it and enjoy.
