Présentation de l'éditeur

At the age of forty-six, Jack Nicklaus was considered by some to be done as a championship golfer. Entering the 1986 Masters, most folks had written off the Golden Bear. But the winner of a record seventeen professional majors wasn't done yet. After a slow start, Nicklaus got in the hunt during the weekend, and he played the final nine holes in a 6-under-par 30. He roared past a who's who of top golfers that day to win his sixth Masters title—a record that still exists. Most experts agree that it was the most thrilling day of tournament golf ever played.

Upon the twenty-fifth anniversary of arguably the most exciting Masters in history, THE 1986 MASTERS is nearly a hole-by-hole account written by a veteran sports journalist who was there. Illustrated with more than fifty exclusive photographs of the tournament from the award-winning team at the Augusta Chronicle, it takes you right onto the course with the golfers. Author John Boyette includes commentary from interviews with the key figures connected to the 1986 Masters. From Nicklaus's wife and son to CBS announcers to the players themselves—Greg Norman, Tom Kite, Bernhard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Seve Ballesteros, and many more—an amazing chorus of voices that helps tell this remarkable story.

And the voice of Jack Nicklaus shines as well, in an interview provided exclusively for the book.

A thoroughly absorbing narrative about one of golf's greatest moments created by one of golf's greatest figures, THE 1986 MASTERS is a must-read for any golf fan.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Unfortunately, mostly a recap of the two commercial highlights videos and the old news articles. 7 janvier 2016
Par Allen Jackson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I completely agree with Mark Wilsonwood's review and 3-star rating. He mentions that, "Many parts of it could have been written by anyone who's seen the one-hour summary of the tournament that's often shown on the Golf Channel." And he is absolutely right. In fact, my biggest disappointment in reading this very average-at-best book is that the author frequently quotes from or otherwise takes information, word for word, from the highlights video done by CBS shortly after the tournament, literally in 1986. Or from the other, much weaker video made in the last 3 or 4 years. If watching a couple of highlights videos and using them as your main sources allows you to write a book that you candidly state you intended to be the go-to work on the subject, you fell woefully short of such a lofty goal.

While there have been probably millions of excellent books written throughout time, if you have the rare audacity, as this author has, to state that your goal was to write the seminal work on the particular subject, you need to do more than just watch the two commercial videos created by apparently much better research teams, and then reciting them back in your book (and sometimes citing them for attribution!).

Moreover, the author states that he attended this 1986 tournament and followed Nicklaus, which initially sounds compelling, but there are precious few insights provided as a result of his being there to witness Jack personally. There is a lot of information taken instead from the aforementioned videos, as well as the reporting of other news men.

Though this book is somewhat informative beyond the sad situation described above, and for many it will be an extremely informative read if they haven't already watched the tournament live on TV or seen either of the two major highlights videos, someone could have learned 80% of what was in this book from just watching the official CBS one-hour highlights video or the other video, later shown repeatedly on ESPN and The Golf Channel, about this 1986 Masters.

In short, the book is around 95% the result of watching the two videos and reading and reporting back on the newspaper articles written by other reporters in 1986. This book, then, is really more a survey of other people's research, yet it is written as and purports to be a stand-alone book. As a result, I just cannot call this an excellent or even a good book. I can only give it credit for having assembled a bunch of information-- not a huge amount, but a decent amount-- with which to inform readers who have not already viewed this tournament on television when it happened or seen either of the highlights videos produced that cover the 1986 Masters.

The book does furnish some nice photos taken from the tournament, and the author apparently was able to do an interview with Jack Nicklaus, and possibly, if I recall correctly, other members of his family. Beyond that, it is hard to say that this book provided much original research.

Unfortunately, like other southern bred/educated authors of books about golf tournaments, this author just does not write particularly well and even makes some grammatical mistakes, although fewer than the frequent ones made by his fellow southern golf book authors. Maybe I am just too picky, but authors like Dick Schaap, who wrote the great, "Massacre at Winged Foot," write much more interestingly and at a higher level, and without making any grammar or punctuation mistakes at all.

I think that the 5-star reviews here must be from people who were not familiar with the television coverage and the previously-made two commercial videos. I have to say, though, that even if I were one of those people, had I been reading a book that regularly quoted from videos about the golf tournament, that alone would lower my opinion of the book, plenty.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jack Hits a Home Run for his Last at Bat 19 février 2012
Par James Lythgoe - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Ted Williams' last at bat, he hit a home run. In many ways the 1986 Masters was Jack's last at bat. The only difference between the circumstances is that Ted needed to hit the ball only once while Jack had to hit the ball several times to get his home run.

I watched the Sunday afternoon round that day and to me Jack really showcased his talent. Standing there in the middle of the 15 th fairway preparing to hit to the green, Jack knew an eagle would position him well on the leader board. What did he do? He hit a four iron to within twelve feet of the hole and then made the putt for eagle. He birdied the next two holes and then waited for the field to crumble before putting his name on his last major.

For those too young to have witness the greatness demonstrated that day, read this book and educate yourself about Jack Nicklaus. That day without a doubt is the most special day I have ever witnessed in forty years of watching golf. I highly recommend reading this book. From the author of The Golf Swing: It's All in the Hands.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 On the slight side 2 janvier 2012
Par Mark Wilsonwood - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I will read anything about the most memorable final round in the history of golf majors. And I don't want to say this was a bad book, because it wasn't. It was just short of what it could have been. It was too slight, and could have been filled out with additional information. Many parts of it could have been written by anyone who's seen the one-hour summary of the tournament that's often shown on the Golf Channel. Yes, the author did do additional research beyond that -- just not as much as he could have.

In summary, the book is a good recap of that amazing win by Nicklaus, but I would have enjoyed a more in-depth account.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A story unlike any other 2 avril 2011
Par patron - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love this book. Sit back, relax and let the greatest golf story unravel in a well-written account of Jack's magical charge on Sunday. The background information in the early chapters is unique and intriguing, especially for a younger generation of golf fans who may not know all the details behind the 1986 Masters. It sets the stage to fully grasp how unlikely of a run this was.

The account of the actual tournament covers everything without getting bogged down into a lengthy, slow-paced work. Instead, each round is a page-turning, nail-biting experience with exclusive interviews and eye-catching photos. The drama and excitement are captured perfectly and builds to a climax in the last nine holes of the final round.

This is a must-read for any golfer. I highly recommend it. And if you don't want to take my word for it, ask Jack Nicklaus, who has fully endorsed this fine work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jack's Participation Makes This Book Special 18 mars 2011
Par Big D - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The fact that Jack Nicklaus wrote the foreword to this book, more or less endorsing it and giving it his stamp of approval makes this book special.

It has certainly benefited from Jack's input and insight.

Other books ("One For the Ages") have been written about the 1986 Masters, but this one is better---because of Jack's involvement.

The first book ("Ages) tells the story. This book "lives" the story.

And what a story, what a day, it was! Nothing else quite like it in our time, though Tom Watson came close in the British Open a couple of years ago.

One magicial, magnificent Sunday...and here we are, all over again!!!
