Kenny Reid has avidly followed golf's majors for more than 30 years. Through the luminescent glow of his television screen, and even, on occasion, from the vantage point of the roped-off boundaries, he has watched the greats of the game stamp their mark in the history books of each of the golf world's premier tournaments. In 2009 he decided to go a step further, decided that it was time to live the dream of all golf enthusiasts - he embarked on a pilgrimage, a 'fan slam', to each of the four majors - the Masters, the US Open, The Open and the PGA Championship - all in a single year. "A Major Obsession" chronicles this golf fan's odyssey. In an effort to record every detail of the fan's experience at the majors at Bethpage, Augusta, Turnberry and Hazeltine, he experiences excitement, mishaps, surprises and feats of brilliance. Not a golf insider or writer, he records each championship's special feel and ambience from the everyday fan's point of view. The journey takes him to the heart of the spectator experience, comparing and contrasting each championship's highs-and-lows both on and off the course. It mixes the sublime with the ridiculous; the expected with the unexpected. Original, quirky and brilliantly insightful, this fan's-eye account of the best players and tournaments in the world is a must for all lovers of sport and of golf; it is entertainment, travelogue and user manual to the most spectacular golf tournaments in the world.
