Who are those uptight curmudgeons in their green jackets? Rich, famous or powerful as you might be, this controversial book is probably as close a glimpse as you will ever get of that eastern Georgia slice of golf heaven known as the Augusta National Golf Club, the home of the Masters Tournament. Steve Eubanks digs behind the manicured veneer of this exclusive enclave. Highlights include insights into how Dwight Eisenhower's rise to power was spawned in the inner sanctums of the club, allegations of racism, the stormy relationship between the town and the club, the parallel rise of Palmer and the Masters, and the coming of Tiger Woods. Tom Parker's reading is strong and melodic. M.D.B. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
