My love of all things "Masters" related was only enhanced by this masterpiece of a book. What a wonderful walk thru the early years. It provided me with an even greater appreciation golf lovers should have of how close we came to never having this great tournament. I could easily lose myself in the book and see myself there as all the critical decisions were made to keep the club afloat in those trying early years.

A detailed look at the beginning of the Masters, with wonderful detail to the struggles of starting the tournament during the depression. Anyone interested in the history of golf and the Masters will really enjoy ready the accounts.

This was an excellent book starting with the dreams of Bobby jones and Clifford Roberts wanting to build Augusta. The early history that went with it made the book great reading
