Renowned novelist and screenwriter Mark Frost turns his eye for golf to an event so famous that it's grown to the stuff of legend. In 1956, a casual bet between two millionaires eventually pitted two of the greatest golfers of the era'Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan'against top amateurs Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi. Frost recounts this dramatic tale from start to finish, detailing the match that vaulted golf out of the shadows and into the national spotlight.
