Summary

At the age of forty-six, some thought Jack Nicklaus was done as a championship golfer. Entering the 1986 Masters, most folks had written off the Golden Bear. But the winner of a record seventeen professional majors wasn't done yet. After a slow start, Nicklaus got in the hunt on Sunday afternoon, and he played the final nine holes in 6-under-par 30. He roared past a who's who of top golfers that day to win his sixth Masters title--a record that still exists. Most experts agree that it was the most thrilling day of tournament golf ever played. On the twenty-fifth anniversary of arguably the most exciting Masters in history, The 1986 Mastersis nearly a hole-by-hole account written by a veteran sports journalist who was there. Illustrated with more than fifty exclusive photographs of the tournament from the award-winning team at the Augusta Chronicle, it takes you right onto the course with the golfers. Author John Boyette includes commentary from interviews with the key figures connected to the 1986 Masters. From Nicklaus's wife and son to CBS announcers to the players themselves--Greg Norman, Tom Kite, Bernhard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Seve Ballesteros, and many more--an amazing chorus of voices help to tell this remarkable story. And the voice of Jack Nicklaus shines as well, in an interview provided exclusively for the book's foreword. A thoroughly absorbing narrative about one of golf's greatest moments created by one of golf's greatest figures, The 1986 Mastersis a must-read for any golf fan.
