Augusta

Home of the Masters Tournament

By Steve Eubanks
Narrated by Tom Parker / 7 hours 44 minutes

The Augusta National Golf Club, home of the prestigious Masters Tournament, is an American icon shrouded in intrigue. Behind the wondrous scenes and memorable tournament play resides a secretive and exclusive clan, marked with scandal and invested with the social power to make or break a man's rise to glory. Mixing a deep respect for golf's traditions with a scrutinizing curiosity, Eubanks explores the many episodes of controversy in the club's history, including the significant role co-founder Clifford Roberts played in Augusta member-to-be Dwight Eisenhower's ascension to the presidency; Roberts' suicide and the club's subsequent loss of the pistol he used; and the exclusion of African American Charlie Sifford from the Masters field. He also recalls moments of Masters glory, such as the 1997 coronation of Tiger Woods, the first African American Masters winner. Augusta is required reading for any golf fan.
