At the age of forty-six, Jack Nicklaus was considered by some to be 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 during the weekend, and he played the final nine holes in a 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. Upon the twenty-fifth anniversary of arguably the most exciting Masters in history, THE 1986 MASTERS is 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 that helps tell this remarkable story. And the voice of Jack Nicklaus shines as well, in an interview provided exclusively for the book. A thoroughly absorbing narrative about one of golf's greatest moments created by one of golf's greatest figures, THE 1986 MASTERS is a must-read for any golf fan.

Long before any of the players actually hit a golf ball, the 1975 Masters Tournament was destined for the record books when Lee Elder became the first African-American ever invited to the exclusive Augusta club's tourney. He was among the veritable Hall of Fame-list of competitors that week: Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Hale Irwin, Billy Casper, and Sam Snead. But Elder, rattled by the media attention, missed the cut. By the weekend, this would be overshadowed, however, by a showdown of the game's three heavyweights: Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, and Tom Weiskopf. Their back-and-forth battle would rivet the golfing world and dramatically culminate in one of the greatest finishes in Masters' history. Gil Capps, a twenty-two-year veteran of the golf industry with NBC Sports and the Golf Channel, recaptures, hole-by-hole, the thrilling drama of this singular event from golf's golden era, from the media-crazed build-up to the tournament's final dramatic putt that would change the game of golf forever.
