Review

“Even a reader who has never set foot on a golf course . . . will be enthralled by this fine novel by sportswriter and commentator John Feinstein that brings high drama to every swing, every putt, every hole, as he describes tournament play by a mix of fictional and actual golf personalities (Matt Kuchar, Rory McIlroy, Hideki Matsuyama)―and a shocking chain of events that sends a teen prodigy to the Augusta National.” ―Buffalo News

“A terrific book.” ―Jay Bilas, ESPN

“A great golf novel.” ―Kathlene Bissell, progolfnow.com

“Well below par . . . in the very best sense.” ―
Kirkus Reviews

“Incredibly entertaining.” ―
Golf Digest
