The Augusta National Golf Club, home of the prestigious Masters Tournament, is an American icon shrouded in intrigue. Behind the wondrous scenes and memorable tournament play resides a secretive and exclusive clan, marked with scandal and invested with the social power to make or break a man's rise to glory. Mixing a deep respect for golf's traditions with a scrutinizing curiosity, Eubanks explores the many episodes of controversy in the club's history, including the significant role co-founder Clifford Roberts played in Augusta member-to-be Dwight Eisenhower's ascension to the presidency; Roberts' suicide and the club's subsequent loss of the pistol he used; and the exclusion of African-American Charlie Sifford from the Masters field. He also recalls moments of Masters glory, such as the 1997 coronation of Tiger Woods, the first African-American Masters winner. Augusta is required reading for any golf fan.
