User reviews about the book
I have to admit I was drawn to read the book after seeing the movie of the same name. It was intriguing to me to realize that sports, and indeed many other vocations, were not always dominated by a few individuals who received lavish support from an early age. There was indeed a time when an amateur could win the US Open. I enjoyed the movie but I enjoyed the book more. Francis Ouimet was led an interesting life and the book makes me appreciate this unassuming man.
The greatest game ever played
One of the best stories of all time and one of my favorite books...well done Mr. Frost!

If you play golf and care about the game, you would be remiss if you didn't read this book. An important story that reminds us that golf, at its core, is more mental than physical. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy.
After seeing and loving the movie, I picked this book up on vacation and began to read. I tremendous insight into not only the history of golf but also the emergence and maturation of the united states. Actually draws, albeit not intentionally, some great parallels with today's politics. Yes I am a golfer, however this book deals more with life's lessons than than golf lessons. Good writing, and a very good read
