John Feinstein returns to his most popular subject - golf - and brings us the story behind 1998's most competitive, lucrative, and unfailingly dramatic contests. Each of the four major gold tournaments - the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA - has its own personality, level of competition, and drama. Here, John Feinstein follows such top stars as Mark O'Meara, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples, and David Duval - together with lesser-known contenders - through the four tournaments.
Readers are treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how big-name players orchestrate their seasons to be at peak form for these intense events. At the same time, Feinstein gives us the history and lore of the tournaments, showing how they became and remain the Majors. THE MAJORS sees Feinstein taking the themes of A GOOD WALK SPOILED to an even higher and more dramatic level; a great gift and another huge bestseller.
