Publisher's Summary

For lovers of golf, this is a must. Feinstein captures the drama and intensity of the game played by those at the top. In 1993 and 1994, Feinstein traveled the PGA Tour with Greg Norman, Nick Price, Tom Watson, Tom Kite, and other giants of the game. You'll relive Davis Love III's clutch performance to win the Ryder Cup, Nick Price's 50-foot putt on the 17th hole of the final round to win the British Open, and John Daly's upsetting allegations of drug use on the tour. The unending drive of champions who work endlessly on every nuance of the game will amaze you and, perhaps, inspire you on your next "good walk" around the links.

Just O.K. but I hoped for more

I just finished listening to "A Good Walk Spoiled" and found it to be less than I had hoped. I am a big fan of the PGA tour and have attended more than a dozen PGA events around the country over the years. The book provides a summary of the 1994 PGA tour season but does so in a "sports page" style of writing. Most of the naration was a string of results from the highlighted tournaments of the season. "Nick Price did this..then Tom Watson did that.." It seemed to lack the colorful "behind the scenes" stories that I had hoped for. Most of the book detailed the 4 majors and the hand full of PGA stars that battled for the tournament titles of 1994. I find Rick Reilly's writing style to be more fun such as his book "Who's Your Caddy". All this being said, I will give Feinstein's book on the US Open at Bethpage a try but will do so with a slight hestitation.

Disappointed, don’t wast your time

It’s Not Really a book, more like reading reports of tournaments results from news paper column, complete with scores. There is No story, no plot. The title doesn’t even apply to anything. Then there is this stupid saxophone playing music. I’m asking for a refund

Narrow focus and lacked insights.

narrative confined to a couple of years on the US tour in the early 1990s. Mildly diverting but not the insider insights that I was looking for.
