I just finished listening to "A Good Walk Spoiled" and found it to be less than I had hoped. I am a big fan of the PGA tour and have attended more than a dozen PGA events around the country over the years. The book provides a summary of the 1994 PGA tour season but does so in a "sports page" style of writing. Most of the naration was a string of results from the highlighted tournaments of the season. "Nick Price did this..then Tom Watson did that.." It seemed to lack the colorful "behind the scenes" stories that I had hoped for. Most of the book detailed the 4 majors and the hand full of PGA stars that battled for the tournament titles of 1994. I find Rick Reilly's writing style to be more fun such as his book "Who's Your Caddy". All this being said, I will give Feinstein's book on the US Open at Bethpage a try but will do so with a slight hestitation.
