Feinstein chronicles the champions' ups and downs, giving readers an insider's look into how victory (and defeat) can change players' lives.

display_description In 2003, after winning six of the twelve majors from 2000 to 2002, Tiger Woods struggled with his swing, leaving him lagging behind the field at both the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship. With Woods out of the picture, the stage was set for a newcomer to claim the top position. Nobody expected that four virtual unknowns would become first-time champions. In his debut in a major, Ben Curtis became the only player since 1913 to prevail on his first time out. Mike Weir--considered good but not great--triumphed in the Masters, becoming the first Canadian to win a major. In the U.S. Open, Jim Furyk was victorious, and the PGA Championship was claimed by the unknown Shawn Micheel. Here, John Feinstein returns to that unlikely year to chronicle the struggles of these four players, giving readers an insider's look into how winning (and losing) major championships changes players' lives.--From publisher description.
