The U.S. Open is one of golf's premier tournaments, generally held at some of the most difficult private courses in the country. OPEN chronicles how and why the 2002 Open came to be played at Bethpage Black in New York and how the already challenging course was transformed into one of the hardest in the country. John Feinstein, among the nation's finest sportswriters, reads this well-edited abridgment of his book. The work describes the behind-the-scenes pre-tournament machinations and tells a more interesting story than one might expect. Feinstein's straightforward reading style demonstrates why he's a popular radio and TV commentator; he is entertaining and paces the book so that even nonenthusiasts of golf can follow the events. Although golf fans might want to hear the entire book, for most people the abridgment will suffice. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
