Summary:

The annual PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament is one of the most grueling competitions in any sport. Every fall, veterans and talented hopefuls sweat through six rounds of hell at Q school to get a shot at the PGA Tour, vying for the 30 slots available. If you don't make it through Q school, you're not on the PGA tour.



John Feinstein tells the story of the players who compete for these coveted positions in the 2005 Q school. With arresting accounts from the players, established winners, rising stars, the defeated, and the endlessly hopeful, America's favorite sportswriter unearths the inside story behind the PGA Tour's brutal all-or-nothing competition.

    Very interesting insight into Pro golf. Feinstein is interested in people...clearly a good listener and inquisitive. I definitely recommend if you like golf.

    A good book, but there were so many heartbreaking stories that prove that golf is the cruelest sport ever.

    You have to be a serious golf fan to make it through this book. Part of the problem is that it's read by the author and John Feinstein just isn't much fun to listen to. If you're a fan of the sport you'll enjoy a lot of familiar names grinding it out in Q School. Some good stories, but largely forgettable stuff. This is probably the first book I've audioed that I was glad was abridged...much longer and I might not have stayed with it.
