The Story of The Masters

The Story of The Masters


A comprehensive look at the history, characters, and drama that make the Masters the highlight of any golf season

This is the first book that focuses solely on the action and history of the tournament itself rather than on the Augusta National Golf Club, which runs the event. There is a writeup on every year the tournament has been played, starting in 1934, grouped into chapters that each have a unifying theme. The storyline of the tournament progresses from the early years, when the tournament quickly established itself, to the era when Sam Snead and Ben Hogan dominated, to the time when Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus brought the tournament into the television age, a couple of decades of European dominance, and finally the Tiger Woods era. Within that framework, each year has its own story to tell, as the Augusta National course provides the perfect setting for drama involving the game’s greatest players.
