Shortly before 6 o'clock on a sun-splashed April Sunday in Georgia, David Duval walked across the narrow stone bridge named in honor of Gene Sarazen that leads to the 15th green at the Augusta National Golf Club. (from the first line)
Duval wears wraparound sunglasses on the golf course to protect his contact lenses from wind and dust. But the dark glasses do more than that. They allow Duval an extra measure of privacy from prying eyes and cameras. Now, those eyes and cameras could not see how wide his eyes had gotten. He took a deep breath and leaned on his putter, trying to look as casual as possible. But his heart was pounding so hard he was certain everyone around the green could hear it thumping. He was leading the Masters by two shots and staring at a very makable eagle putt. For one brief moment, Duval allowed the kind of thought he tries to avoid at all costs to infect his brain. If I make this putt, I'm going to win the Masters, he thought.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE to win a major championship and reach the absolute pinnacle of golf? Through a season of the four tournaments -- the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open, and the PGA Championship -- known collectively as the majors, John Feinstein takes us where the television cameras never go, both off the links and "inside the ropes", as he reveals the special challenges and rituals, the frustrations and exhilaration, that mark the lives and careers of the world's greatest golfers.
From the Publisher:

Annotation:
A reporter shares a behind-the-scenes look at an elite group of players--including Tiger Woods, Mark O'Meara, and David Duval--during the four most significant golf tournaments.

Praise

Wall Street Journal
"Mr. Feinstein has the gift of re-creating events known to us all while infusing them with excitement, even suspense. We know, for example, that Jack Nicklaus did not pull off a seventh Masters victory last year. Yet as Mr. Feinstein describes his Sunday charge, our spines tingle once again, and, when the old champion falters, we are once more--a full year after the fact--devastated." - Jay Nordlinger 4/9/1999

New York Times
"....THE MAJORS, another major triumph for John Feinstein." - Dave Anderson 5/2/1999
