Feinstein is a brilliant reporter, a remorseless digger for information with a gift for establishing affinities with golfers reputedly reluctant to bare their souls ... There is an excellent profile of Tom Watson, which pumps blood into that enigmatic figure, and no better observation of Nick Faldo's obsession with the game has ever been written ... The professional golf circuit is now a manic, driven circus and Feinstein, without plunging into tabloid mire, has captured it in a sweeping canvas ... A stunning documentary on the modern professional game * Ian Wooldride in THE GUARDIAN *
Excellent. * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
A sparkling account... If you only read one sports book a year, this is the one. * THE ECONOMIST *
Worthy of a place in the front rank of sports books ... So thorough that you can almost see the golfer's spike marks on each page * THE TIMES *
Highly recommended * SUNDAY TIMES *
Feinstein gets right inside the mindset, capturing the insularity, the comradeship and the little barbs of bitterness. The catty relationship between the superstars of golf and the workaday professionals who make up the supporting cast on the tour provided splendid material ... A wonderful portrait of a professional sport and a swathe of American society * IRISH TIMES *
