Among those who know the game, the Open is generally regarded as golf's ultimate test of mettle, focus and skill; and in 1977, it became the site of one of the most dramatic events in sports history. The torch of supremacy was passed that year, when Tom Watson laid siege to Jack Nicklaus's air of invincibility, defeating the original Great One by a stroke in a ferocious duel spanning the Open's final 36 holes. Shaping the drama of this moment, author Michael Corcoran charts the rich history of the Open before moving on to in-depth portraits of Nicklaus and Watson. "Duel in the Sun" draws on a wide range of interviews with the stars' fellow competitors, caddies, commentators and spectators to tell a story of the rise of a fiercely driven new hero - and the poignant grace of a wise champion welcoming him to the summit of the game.
