I was hesitant to purchase it because of very bad quality of sound of the sample. But I was interested to read about Masters. I enjoyed listening it. Author is smart and I believe he gives relatively balanced view. Narration is excellent. Thanks.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would heartily recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of Augusta National or the Masters Tournament. Eubanks takes an honest look at the Club and Tournament that can be incisive, humorous, and respectful at the same time.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Augusta?
Eubanks describes the contentious Clifford Roberts fairly accurately. Roberts was cranky, irascible, and a stickler for detail. He was a hard man, somewhat aloof, and - as the Curtis Tillman story shows - not without a good share of racism in his veins. Yet, at the same time, his organizational skills went a long way in making the Masters the great tournament that it is.
What about Tom Parker’s performance did you like?
Tom Parker's narration is pretty good. It would have been nice if he had pronounced Joe Dey's name correctly (it rhymes with "Die"). However, he handled Severiano Ballesteros with ease, so that says something.
Any additional comments?
This audio book is really quite good. It's competitor is Curt Sampson's volume on the Masters, and Eubanks beats that one hands down.
