Finished reading August 2, 2014. Not one of my favourite books, probably as I am not a big fan of golf. I did enjoy it for the writing. It was well written. Thank you Steven. 3 1/2 Stars.
It was on TV the other night. Thought I would watch it. Nah … I’d rather read the book!
The Legend of Bagger Vance
by Steven Pressfield @SPressfield
— Book Description —
Publication Date: August 27, 2009
In the Depression year of 1931, on the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah’s windswept shore, two legends of the game–Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen–meet for a mesmerizing thirty-six-hole showdown. Another golfer will also compete–a troubled local war hero, once a champion, who comes with his mentor and caddie, the mysterious Bagger Vance. It is Vance, sage and charismatic, who will ultimately guide the match, for he holds the secret of the Authentic Swing. And he alone can show his protege the way back to glory.
Written in the spirit of Gold in the Kingdom and The Natural, reveals the true nature of the game in a story that is unforgettable.
