Golf, Money, and Power in Augusta, Georgia
By Curt Sampson
Narrated by Barrett Whitener / 10 hours 12 minutes
The Masters golf tournament, known as the toughest ticket in sports, weaves a hypnotic spell over all sports fans. Success breeds legends, while failure can overshadow even the most brilliant of careers. And as author Curt Sampson reveals in The Masters, a cold heart beats behind the warm antebellum facade of the famous Augusta course-a heart that belongs to the man who killed himself on the grounds decades ago. Club and tournament founder Clifford Roberts still seems to run the place from his grave. But the story behind the elusive and reclusive Roberts and his relationships with presidents, power brokers, and champions, has never been told-until now. Here is an amazing slice of history and a spellbinding portrait of this magnificent tournament.
