In the Depression year of 1931, on the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windswept shore, two legends of the game—Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen—meet for a mesmerizing thirty-six-hole showdown. Another golfer will also compete—a troubled local war hero, once a champion, who comes with his mentor and caddie, the mysterious Bagger Vance. It is Vance, sage and charismatic, who will ultimately guide the match, for he holds the secret of the Authentic Swing. And he alone can show his protege the way back to glory.

Written in the spirit of Golf in the Kingdom and The Natural, The Legend of Bagger Vance reveals the true nature of the game in a story that is unforgettable.

The Legend of Bagger Vance by Steven Pressfield was ok, not wonderful. It reads like a fantasy/philosophy story that is well excuted, but the religious/philosophical portions are jumbled. It is a little like: let's put some ancient Greek ideas of religion, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity (and golf) in a pot and see what we cook up. Some of its sentiments, like God is always with you etc., are nice. But I can't quite say I enjoyed the book as a whole.read more

Great story, well told. You'll get the most out of it if you've played golf but you can still enjoy it if you've watched it on TV. Uses golf as a metaphor for life.read more
