About this title

Synopsis:

An account of the 1960 U.S. Open from start to finish brings to life the drama of three great players--Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, and Jack Nicklaus--as they battled to the end

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.
