Talk about Tournament Week: Inside The Ropes And Behind The Scenes On The PGA Tour


Moonworm
Just like the drive that starts right down the middle, then slices way off to the right, this book is a letdown.
It promises such great things, inside the ropes of the best golfers. It doesn't deliver, but rather just provides collected anecdotes, rather than real first hand observation, interview, etc.
Suggest turn to some great golf writing on the topic, e.g. Lorne Rubenstein's "Links:An Exploration" of which Greg Norman says this is one of rare journalists who understands the tour, and John Feinstein's "The Majors."
Rexfire
This has to be one of the most poorly written golf books in print. Lazy and disjointed writing. The longest an idea is carried forward is 3 sentences. The author seems to have paged through back issues of Golf Digest compiling anecdotes and pulled them together for this book. Unfortunately, it is a topic that has great potential and that is what made me buy it. It is a great disappointment. Don't expect anything near Feinstein's level of writing. Not even close. save your money and buy a box of Tour Distances instead. The only good things I could say is that it could be read in a store within an hour and half and that the cover layout with Tiger's picture is cool.
Memuro
Finally a sports book that breaks from the cliche and takes us somewhere we can't ordinarily go - inside the ropes. Strege's research is meticulous and his style is refreshing. This is the kind of stuff I wish I could read every week, but never find in the newspaper and seldom see in the weekly golf magazines. If you want to know what's going on on the other side of the PGA Tour, read this book. I'm not a big sports-book fan and I've attempted without much success to read some of the more recent golf works like The Majors. This is the first one I've been compelled to complete. The practice-round betting anecdotes alone are worth the cover price.

Very interesting look at the PGA Tour. It goes way beyond the course and finally we get to learn a little more about the lives, habits, personalities of the athletes like we do for athletes in other sports and entertainers.

Breezy, easy to read anecdotal insights into what goes on inside and outside the ropes at golf tournaments. This is a real light summer read with some new stuff on competitive golf. I liked it.
Cargahibe
This is a very quick read. The author incorporates anecdote after anecdote, none lasting more than a couple of paragraphs. As others have noted there are better golf books out there, but this one is a very quick read, and you may come across a few stories that you haven't heard before. Recommended more for the golf novice (like myself) than the hardcore fan.
