Tales From Q School

I've read most, if not all of John Feinstein's golf books - A Good Walk Spoiled, The Majors, Open. Really enjoy his writing style - he gets into players heads and their lives, and give a well-rounded and in-depth picture of what he's writing about. This book is about Q School, the fall tournament that is the main entry point into the PGA Tour for most of the players who are headed there. It's a strange tournament in a lot of ways, most notably the pressure that players in it feel. Feinstein does a great job of chronicling it. This book, though, more than previous ones, feels like it is a series of magazine columns that was hammered into book form - there are strange repetitions of phrases and facts from chapter to chapter. Still enjoyed it very much, and can't wait to see what Feinstein does next in the golf world.

Hmmm, I must have missed this one- no comment yet! But I did just see that you finally took my advise and posted a couple book reviews on our Librarian's Choice webpage! Yeah Turi! Although I did not read the second one since I haven't read that book yet... :)
I'm glad you're contributing since I haven't this year-
