about this item

The gripping story of the battle for golf's four highest trophies in one of the most closely fought seasons in the sport's historyThe stage is set for the 2015 Majors to be one of the most fascinating golfing years in decades, sure to be analyzed and talked about for years to come. This will be the year when an emerging new generation, led by the super-talented Rory McIlroy, face off against long-established names like Tiger Woods, who is returning from injury. McIlroy faced big personal challenges off the course, and Woods desperately wants to narrow in on Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 Major trophies—but he has to win four to catch up, and he hasn’t won one since 2008. And there will be no shortage of captivating storylines as Bubba Watson, the flamboyant American, prepares to defend his title. Can the self-styled left-hander claim a third Green Jacket or will it be another lefty, Phil Mickelson, who slips his arms back into this the most coveted golfing garment? Of the younger generation, 21-year-old Jordan Spieth, who was runner up last year, or Rickie Fowler, who has finished second in his last three majors, could both mount memorable challenges. Rarely has a season carried more promise and—fueled by interviews with players, caddies, coaches, and officials—this will be an entertaining, enlightening account providing comprehensive background and context to the events as they unfold.
