Going into the final round of the 1996 Masters, Greg Norman led by six strokes. This finally looked to be the year that the 'Great White Shark' would win the green jacket. But in the final pairing of the final day Norman met the one man who always seemed to get the better of the Australian when it really mattered. What followed was one of the most excruciating collapses in sporting history. Andy Farrell brings the players, the action and the emotional turmoil vividly to life in the tale of one of the most gripping final rounds of a golf tournament ever played. Featuring first-hand accounts, blow-by-blow analysis of the action over 18 chapters, and detailed portraits of both men and their long-standing rivalry, Faldo/Norman relives the drama and heartbreak of the day when Greg Norman was once again denied victory at Augusta.

Book of the Week--Independent on Sunday;"an impressive and fascinating effort." -- "Golf Oklahoma"; "Andy Farrell has brought the memories back to life in a wonderful and detailed hole by hole account of one of the most famous duels in golfing history"--Irish Examiner; "Farrell tells a story whose conclusion everyone already knows, but he does so with such bracing detail and accomplished scene-setting that the narrative moves vividly forward ... Perhaps the 2014 Masters will also produce a legendary finish, but it will be hard to match the agony and elation of 1996, which Andy Farrell has captured so well in Faldo/Norman."--The A Position; "Farrell's solid entry about one of the Masters' most dramatic moments is one for the ages." --Augusta Chronicle
