*Received this from First Reads contest - reading now.*
So far, a bit off from other well-liked Feinstein golf books - more like a recitation of hole-by-hole play of the tournaments of 2003. Hope it gets more to the changes these wins brought to players' lives, and more of the behind the scenes detail he's shown in other golf books.

Alas - this was not one of Feinstein's best works, and certainly not up to the power, drama and storytelling of "Open". It had the details, the nitty-gritty, and play-by-play style of other works. And the bouncy back-and-forth in time bits too. Not a bad book, just drier and a bit less engaging than other works.
