About the Author

Curt Sampson was a junior, amateur, and college golfer. He has written three other books: The Eternal Summer, Full Court Pressure, and Hogan.

Sampson lives in Ennis, Texas, with his wife and two children.


Arguably the most prestigious event on the Professional Golfers Tour, the Masters imposes 13 specific qualifications a player must meet to be on the invitation list. Even then there is no guarantee that a golfer will be selected to participate. No wonder this competition is a who's who of the world's best golfers. Sampson, author of several books on golf (e.g., Hogan, Rutledge, 1996), has compiled an interesting study complete with bibliography and index. This portrait of the Masters, appropriately subtitled "gold, money, and power in Augusta," traces the tournament's history since 1933, revealing both the dramatic moments and the controversial secrets, most notably racismÄcertainly a book to raise eyebrows at the Augusta National Golf Club. The members' code of silence and a tight control of the media have kept a lid on the club's less-than-flattering side. Golfing enthusiasts will enjoy the publication. Purchase where demand warrants.ÄLarry Robert Little, Penticton P.L., BC

"Jack Nicklaus may own six green jackets, but no one has captured the Masters like [Curt] Sampson."
--The (Baton Rouge) Advocate

"Sampson has put together a great story of a powerful institution." "[Curt Sampson's] fine new book, The Masters, is the only
way we mortals are ever going to gain entree to the hallowed Augusta National Golf Club." --The Dallas Morning News
