Bethpage State Park is owned by the state of New York, and no membership is required to play there. This is golf at its most populist, most pure--and most challenging. In what Tiger Woods himself would declare the most difficult national championship, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Nick Faldo, and the rest would, through days of rain and roughs, learn the hard way that while Bethpage may be open to the public, even for the pros the chance of winning can be closed off to mere mortals.

With unprecedented backstage access, John Feinstein finally removes the mystery shrouding golfs most famous event, unraveling how pairings are made- qualifiers- setting up the golf course- and all the complexities of bringing golfs most exclusive competition to a truly public setting. In fascinating detail, Feinstein takes readers through every step, every thorny hole, every bitter rivalry of golfs greatest tournament.- The Bethpage course was so challenging that only one player finished under par- this was golf at its most intense.- Nobody in America writes about golf better than John Feinstein, as fans of The Majors (4/99- over 300,000 copies sold) and A Good Walk Spoiled (6/96- over 400,000 copies in paperback alone) can attest.- In the past, Feinstein has written books with multiple tournaments- now he focuses, laser like, on just one, and the result is a book of increased drama and detail.
