About this title

Synopsis:

A behind-the-scenes study of men's professional golf follows a turbulent year on the PGA tour, sharing portraits of superstars and rising players, the pressures of a high-profile sport, and dramatic tournament moments. By the author of A Season on the Brink. 100,000 first printing. $100,000 ad/promo.

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.
