"Jack Nicklaus may own six green jackets, but no one has captured the Masters like [Curt] Sampson." (The Baton Rouge Advocate)
"[Curt Sampson's] fine new book, The Masters, is the only way we mortals are ever going to gain entrie to the hallowed Augusta National Golf Club." (The Dallas Morning News)
Really gives some good insight to golf's most popular tournament. Narrator is good but occasionally gets names wrong. Still, well worth a listen.
I wonder how well researched he really is and how much homework this author really did when he can't even get the simplest things correct. For instance, he mentions or refers to Atlanta being in Cobb County numerous times, when it wouldn't have taken him two seconds to verify that Atlanta is in Fulton County, and always as has been. It's close to Cobb County, one county over. My point is this, how many other things was he CLOSE, but not CORRECT on. He really doesn't paint Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts in the best of light. Truth, or just something close?
Curt Sampson is an I credible author.
I loved how he brought the history of this magnificent place to life. He tells of things I would've never even thought belonged to the Masters. Anyone who loves golf needs to read this book.
Not sure, this was a little dull to be honest
Not my first choice
fascinating story but could have been a little bit more cool inside stuff exposed
Don't listen at night you'll fall asleep to the tone in his voice
Father of three with no time to actually read, but also a former history teacher and current attorney with a long commute-I love audiobooks.
an updated version....copywright 98? C'mon Audible...
The Match...good story of golf history
WHat it has is great, but in 2015 you feel kinda like it stopped in the middle ending in the 1997 Masters...
Audible makes it tough to realize what the published date is...you could find it if you looked for it, but looking at the summary you would have thought this was a recent work.
