Description
The four tournaments known as the majors - the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open, and the PGA Championship - are the absolute pinnacle of golf, competitions played at a level of pressure guaranteed to give even the greatest golfers the shakes. In The Majors, bestselling sportswriter John Feinstein accompanies a dozen top golfers as they play these tournaments, revealing what it is that makes them so demanding - and what it takes to win such exalted prizes. He takes us onto the courses and into the back rooms to show us how decisions are made on what players will be paired together and where the holes will be placed on different days - including the disastrous hole placement that caused such outrage at the U.S. Open. Most of all, The Majors shows us the greatest golfers of our time under the greatest pressure they ever experience - how Payne Stewart manages to sleep when he has the lead at the U.S. Open, how Mark O'Meara paces himself for a masterful Sunday, how John Daly deals with frustration and maintains his sobriety.
