As the golf writer for Bill Simmons' Grantland, Shane Ryan is the perfect herald for the sport's new age. In Slaying the Tiger, he embeds himself for a season on the PGA Tour, where he finds the game far removed from the genteel rhythms of yesteryear. Instead he discovers a group of mercurial talents driven to greatness by their fear of failure and their relentless perfectionism. From Augusta to Scotland, with an irreverent and energetic voice, Ryan documents every transcendent moment, every press tent tirade, and every controversy that made the 2014 tour one of the most exciting and unpredictable in recent memory.

Not worth it
A few of the stories are entertaining, however the majority are told by an author that would rather bash each player in an attempt to gain a name, than to actually provide thought out critique.
Couple that with a narrator that pronounced multiple golfers names and courses so absurdly wrong that it made the listening cringe worthy.
I didn’t even finish the book it was so bad.
Many other golf books out there that will provide better experiences.

OK stories, very bad presentation.
I have read most every book that discusses golf in its current form. This book sounded like an outsider who knows nothing about the game but had a press pass for a year and loved finding the worst in people. The stories are ok at best. The fact the reader of the audio book mispronounced countless names made me realize the book was a joke.
