Publisher's Summary

The annual PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament is one of the most grueling competitions in any sport. Every fall, veterans and talented hopefuls sweat through six rounds of hell at Q school to get a shot at the PGA Tour, vying for the 30 slots available. If you don't make it through Q school, you're not on the PGA tour. John Feinstein tells the story of the players who compete for these coveted positions in the 2005 Q school. With arresting accounts from the players, established winners, rising stars, the defeated, and the endlessly hopeful, America's favorite sportswriter unearths the inside story behind the PGA Tour's brutal all-or-nothing competition.

Feinstein was a sloppy reader

The author should have not been the reader, sounded hammered in a few spots while reading

Exepcted more 'golf geekiness'

Feinstein provides a loose structure of describing first stage, second stage, finals and touches on the adventures of many players as they go through Q school. The problem is that there was not nearly enough of what I call the golf "geek factor": extreme detail of how a sequence of holes is being played--club selection, lie, strategy, mis-hits, etc. He does provide this for a couple of players in the finals, but it seemed too little, too late. Anyone reading this book is waaaaay into golf and like that level of detail--usually.

As it was, I was left with what felt like a ton of names and totals for their rounds and how far they missed "the number." It got a little distracting and hard to follow. He does get across what an ordeal Q school is (it is being phased out now, I believe, or at least revised) and how heartbreaking and costly small mistakes--or the whims of fate--can be. If you're into golf, read it but be aware that it's a little general at times in its approach.
