About this title:

Synopsis: [This is the MP3CD audiobook format.]

[Read by Tom Parker (aka Grover Gardner)]

The 1960 U.S. Open Golf Championship played at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colorado, remains perhaps the most dramatic, competitive, and passionate of all Open championships. In 1960, the Young Lions of the game were eager to reach the top tier occupied by venerable players such as Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. In this Open, only a single stroke separated the three leaders--Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, and a young but talented amateur named Jack Nicklaus--on the final two holes. The stunning conclusion would prove a watershed in the lives of all three players and in the game itself.

Golf's Greatest Championship recounts that fateful Open from the 8:00 a.m. first-round tee-off to the finish, bringing alive a near-mythic moment in modern golf. Along for the journey are some of the greatest players of the day, including Sam Snead, Gary Player, Ken Venturi, Tommy Bolt, Billy Casper, Julius Boros, Bob Rosburg, Dow Finsterwald, Gene ''The Machine'' Littler, and Art Wall.

Review: Not many sporting events can continue to hold you spellbound long after their completion, but the 1960 Open is one of them. It had everything: a nail-biting charge to victory by Arnold Palmer, the end of an era in Ben Hogan, and the beginning of a legend in Jack Nicklaus. Tension builds hole by hole and stroke by stroke in Julian Graubart's rousingly detailed replay of four of the most exciting days in golf history.
