Someone asked me what made 1998 so special that John Feinstein wrote a book covering golf s four major championships of that year The truth of it is, he picked 1998 before the Masters began that year He follows each major through the qualifying process, the tournament preparations, and then through the action He has interviews and quotes from dudes trying to qualify for the US Open who shoot 85 in the local qualifiers In other words, guys you never hear about when the US Open rolls around I Someone asked me what made 1998 so special that John Fei

The Majors In Pursuit of Golf s Holy Grail by John Feinstein Little, Brown Co 1999 796.352 John Feinstein brings his sportswriting skills and his golf connections to get this behind the scenes look at professional golf s four most prestigious tournaments My rating 7 10, finished 2010. Great read even two decades after the fact.I watched the 1998 majors, and the ones he describes in the epilogue from the following year This book helped relive those days and added several layers of detail and insight. Probably a lot of information that big golf fans would know already, but I like Feinstein s writing and learned a lot, even if it is a decade old.
