5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest golf books ever, 17 Nov 2003
This review is from: The Greatest Game Ever Played: Vardon, Ouimet and the birth of modern golf (Paperback)
This is a truly superb book, chronicling a defining moment in golf history. This should be required reading for any student of the game. I had a vague awareness of the 1913 U.S. Open and the participants, but Mark Frost brought a inspirational tale to life vividly and illuminated the brilliance of Harry Vardon (truly the Tiger Woods of his time) and the greatness of Francis Ouimet. I am amazed that this book was not shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year, because, in its own way, it is as good as Seabiscuit, which is very high praise indeed in my opinion. To anyone reading this review, the message is simple, buy this book, you will not be dissapointed.
