MOMENT OF GLORY AUDIO BOOK: PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

NATIONAL AUDIO BOOK MONTH GIVEAWAY
GIVEAWAY ENDED
MOMENT OF GLORY

AUDIO BOOK
BY JOHN FEINSTEIN

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:

In 2003, after winning six of the twelve majors from 2000 to 2002, Tiger Woods struggled with his swing, leaving him lagging behind the field at both the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship. With Woods out of the picture, the stage was set for a newcomer to claim the top position. Nobody expected that four virtually unknown players would rise to become first-time champions.

In his debut appearance in a major, Ben Curtis became the only player since Francis Ouimet in 1913 to prevail on his first time out. Mike Weir--who was considered a good player but not a great one--triumphed in The Masters, becoming the first Canadian to win a major. In the U.S. Open, Jim Furyk was victorious, and the PGA Championship was claimed by the unknown Shawn Micheel.

But after each player's history-making season, the four have had little further success. 2008 is the first year since that unexpected year, when it will be possible for the four golfers to qualify for the tour. In MOMENT OF GLORY, John Feinstein returns to the unlikely year of 2003 and chronicle the personal and professional struggles of these four players. With great affection for the underdog and extraordinary access to the players, he then looks to the 2008 season, giving readers an insider's look into to how winning (and losing) major championships changes players' lives.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


John Feinstein is the bestselling author of Let Me Tell You a Story, Caddy for Life, Open, The Punch, The Last Amateurs, The Majors, A Good Walk Spoiled, A Civil War, A Season on the Brink, Play Ball, Hard Courts, and two novels. He writes for Inside Sports, Golf, Tennis Magazine, and Basketball America and commentates on NPR and CBS. John Feinstein lives in Potomac, MD, and Shelter Island, NY.

I use to play golf, MY best friends Dad was a big golfer. So I know some golf but most of the time we just whacked balls around. I haven't played in 25 years. But I like the game.

I have attempted to play golf but unfortunately I was very bad and decided I do better watching it!

Yes I attempted golf along time ago with my husband. It's a hard game to play and I have no upper body strength, I probably have the smallest arms you've seen on someone 5'9" lol But it was fun trying.
