    I m not a huge golf fan, but I had the good fortune of attending the 2011 Masters Knowing little about professional golf other than that the Masters is its signature event, at least in the United States, I wanted to learn Readers will quickly appreciate how Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones helped create arguably the best run sporting event in America Readers will also gain insight into membership, course design and upkeep, integration, television, legal battles President Eisenhowerd the list go [...]

    This is a good book and perhaps deserves than the two stars that I have given it But as I look over the books to which I ve given three stars, it just does not compare All the elements of a good biography were present But there was something missing from this story, some intangible that I couldn t quite put my finger on.It is the story of Augusta National and, in particular, Clifford Roberts, that enigmatic figure who often stood in Bobby Jones shadow This book argues that it is Roberts genius [...]

    Great book whether you like golf or know nothing about it, and I m the latter This book is extremely well written and ties in the Great Depression, the World Wars, the development of post war America, the switch over from black and white to color TV, and so much , all the while discussing some people who embodied the American dream It s very engaging from beginning to end and makes me now want to take up golf as a hobby Highly recommend

    I love Augusta National and the history of the Masters I think that this book probably comes closest be uncovering the truth about how the Masters became the premier golf tournament Clifford Roberts is under estimated in the history of golf and how he help set many of the standards that are today taken for granted.
