Kurzbeschreibung

1. Juni 1996
In the highly acclaimed bestseller A Good Walk Spoiled, John Feinstein captures the world of professional golf as it has never been captured before. Traveling with the golfers on the PGA Tour, Feinstein gets inside the heads of the game's greatest players as well as its struggling wannabes. Meet superstars like Nick Price, who nailed a fifty-foot putt at the seventeenth to win the British Open, and Paul Azinger, who marked his return from a bout with cancer with an emotional appearance at the Buick Open. Go behind the scenes for Davis Love III's unforgettable come-from-behind victory in the Ryder Cup. In golf, Feinstein eloquently relates, the line that separates triumph from disappointment is incredibly fine. "One week you've discovered the secret to the game; the next week you never want to play it again".

Amazon.de

On those magnificent days on which your drives split the fairway down the middle and your wedge shots leave you putting for birdie, you think: "I wonder if I could do this for a living." After all, guys in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, guys no one heard of until recently, are making planeloads of money on the various golf tours (and buying private planes to take them from one big-money tournament to the next). A Good Walk Spoiled is a bit of a reality check. John Feinstein chronicles the struggles of the top golfers in the game, as well as those trying to get onto the PGA Tour. These are gifted players who've devoted their lives to the game, and on any given day they could just flat out stink. A Good Walk Spoiled is a completely engaging book from first page to last, a wonderfully observed and masterfully told story of pain and profit in the world's most frustrating sport.

Pressestimmen

The golf book of the season...his dissection of the pressures of life where the cost oe one fluffed shot can be counted in tens of thousands of dollars will provide a salutary check to the dreams of a legion of club golfers. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Feinstein is a brilliant reporter, a remorseless digger for information with a gift for establishing affinities with golfers reputedly reluctant to bare their souls ... There is an excellent profile of Tom Watson, which pumps blood into that enigmatic figure, and no better observation of Nick Faldo's obsession with the game has ever been written ... The professional golf circuit is now a manic, driven circus and Feinstein, without plunging into tabloid mire, has captured it in a sweeping canvas ... A stunning documentary on the modern professional game Ian Wooldride in THE GUARDIAN Excellent. DAILY TELEGRAPH A sparkling account... If you only read one sports book a year, this is the one. THE ECONOMIST Worthy of a place in the front rank of sports books ... So thorough that you can almost see the golfer's spike marks on each page THE TIMES Highly recommended SUNDAY TIMES Feinstein gets right inside the mindset, capturing the insularity, the comradeship and the little barbs of bitterness. The catty relationship between the superstars of golf and the workaday professionals who make up the supporting cast on the tour provided splendid material ... A wonderful portrait of a professional sport and a swathe of American society IRISH TIMES -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful book about life on the PGA tour 1. August 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This engaging book covers life on the PGA tour from the perspective of several tour players, not necessarily the top names on the tour. At the time this book was written, Bruce Fleisher was an aging journeyman on the tour, having won only once in his career. Feinstein chose to make Fleisher one of the golfers he covered. I was engaged in following the day to day life of this son of holocaust survivors and was therefore delighted when several years later, Fleisher became the top money winner on the PGA senior tour. He is currently a superstar on that tour. This book is golf writing at it's best. I recommend it

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Opportunity Spoiled 13. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
The author missed a tremendous opportunity to write a masterpiece. The access to players, inside information and details of the PGA Tour was very impressive. Unfortunately, the stories were disconnected and often incomplete. It seemed as if the author had a difficult time maintaining a theme or train of thought. While this is understandable for information collected over a long period of time, it made the book fragmented and difficult to read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Solid, insightful, inspiring 24. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I'll begin by saying that I don't find Feinstein a particularly elegant writer. Like so many of the golfers he admires, Fienstein is a bit of a grinder. I prefer the golf essays of Herbert Warren Wind and John Updike. That said, I immensely enjoyed this book for its detailed and often inspiring look at the golfing and private lives of several players on the Tour. If the book had a central point, I thought it was that playing professional golf is just about as difficult a way to make a living as there is. The physical, mental, and emotional strain is almost unbearable and the lonelieness and self-reliance very fatiguing. Like another reviewer, I did not find the book too long, but too short: I wanted to read about more players and about more seasons.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wanna know what the tour is really like? 20. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book will make you understand the pressures of the tour. It makes the reader "feel" like he/she is the one going through the paces. All in all, an excellent book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read 4. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book offers great insight about the PGA Tour and the mini-tour players. Well written and a joy to read and re-read. This books tells the complete story from the eyes of tour stars and the promising nobodies. Feinstein certainly doesn't pull his punches writing about the more troublesome or egotistical players.

Format:Taschenbuch
If you are a lover of golf, either on the course or on the couch, you will love this book. The way Feinstein blends the stories of the nobodies and the superstars is captivating. The period it covers is the 1994 PGA season, so it doesn't have current stars Woods and Duval in prominent roles, but I think the book is more valuable because of that. You learn about the lesser known players and all the quirks of the tour only an inside observer could see. Sporting fans will find this book excellent, but I can see that other people might become bored with the details.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Modern Golf Writing at its Best 12. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I have trouble sympathizing with the reader who complained of this book's length. Though it is true that you can't judge a book by its cover, you certainly can tell how thick it is! In my opinion, 500 pages was too few. I could have handled that many more, Fienstien comes close to capturing the essence of the mystery of golf ... and why so many of us are captivated by this frustrating little sport.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Walk Spoiled... A GOOD Read Even For Non-Golfer 3. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book for a friend of mine. And in a weak moment (no books to read in the house) I picked A Good Walk Spoiled up. I had anticipated being bored to death... as I am not a golfer and pretty much golf illiterate. What I found was a whole new world I had been missing... and honestly confused by. I have many golfing friends and I never understood what the fascination was all about. From the time Feinstein described Davis Love's urge to throw up in the first few pages... I was hooked and not due to my attraction to regurgitation. The actual angst these guys put themselves through was amazing to read about. Their home lives and what inspired them to live on the road 40 some weeks out of the year in search of that elusive hole in one made me appreciate the sport in a new way. 500 pages later I was surprised not only that I had hung in there but also that I throughly enjoyed the experience. I contribute my positive trip into golf land to Mr. Feinsteins clever turn o'phrase.
