Great Mo­ments of the U.S. Open

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - BOOKS -

By Robert Wil­liams and Michael Tros­tel Fire­fly, 212 pages, $35 PIC­TURES are worth tens of thou­sands of words in this fab­u­lously il­lus­trated chron­i­cle of the great­est mo­ments at the most test­ing tour­na­ment in golf. There’s Wat­son’s green­side leap upon drain­ing “the Chip” on the 17th at Peb­ble, and Tiger’s mighty fist pump at Tor­rey when he sank the win­ning putt af­ter limp­ing and winc­ing through 91 holes on a knee that re­quired surgery. Wins by Arnie, the Golden Bear, Su­per Mex and the im­prob­a­ble Jack Fleck are brought back to life by vivid pho­tos and ro­bust sto­ry­telling.
