Review:

One of Mark Twain's wryer observations provides the title for this captivating chronicle of a year in the life of the best golfers on the planet. Rich in the inherent drama and tension of competition, and filled with irony, humor, color, and personal detail, John Feinstein's A Good Walk Spoiled ambles beyond fairways and greens into an often-powerful examination of the pressures tour pros--from established stars such as Greg Norman and Nick Price to those constantly on the bubble--carry in their bags, and the elusive search for perfection in their games that keeps these remarkable athletes so focused and driven.

From the Back Cover:

In the highly acclaimed bestseller A Good Walk Spoiled, John Feinstein captures the world of professional golf as it has never been captured before. Traveling with the golfers on the PGA Tour, Feinstein gets inside the heads of the game's greatest players as well as its struggling wannabes. Meet superstars like Nick Price, who nailed a fifty-foot putt at the seventeenth to win the British Open, and Paul Azinger, who marked his return from a bout with cancer with an emotional appearance at the Buick Open. Go behind the scenes for Davis Love III's unforgettable come-from-behind victory in the Ryder Cup. In golf, Feinstein eloquently relates, the line that separates triumph from disappointment is incredibly fine. "One week you've discovered the secret to the game; the next week you never want to play it again".
