The time: 1931. The place: the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windswept Atlantic shore. The event: a once-in-a-lifetime 36-hole match...in which the stakes are higher than anyone imagined. In Steven Pressfield's richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Played above raging Atlantic surf and under gathering storm clouds, their match is thrilling competition. But the key to the outcome lies with Bagger Vance, a caddie who carries the secret of the Authentic Swing. His mysterious powers guide the play and leave a lasting imprint on the lives he touches that day and in years to come. A sports fable worthy of comparison to The Natural, The Legend of Bagger Vance reveals that, in life as well as golf, the real battle is not with outside opponents but with oneself.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Good stuff…a philosophical fantasy imagined on a golf course, heavy with fog, storm, fireworks and howling winds of supernatural forces.”  New York Times Book Review
The Legend of Bagger Vance is quite simply the best golf novel I have ever read…I was utterly riveted by this work of art, and literally covered with goose bumps for many hours until I had finished it at a single sitting!”  Ben Wright, CBS golf commentator
“Deeply entertaining, a terrific read…a deft fairy tale with a light engaging touch.”  St. Petersburg Times
“Every listener should enjoy Pressfield’s novel about a 1931 golf match between Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen…Barrett Whitener’s reading evokes the sense of life in this Georgia town, its good and bad. What makes this book special is the way Whitener transfers this page-turner into a performance the listener never wants to stop. The book and movie received excellent reviews; this rendition adds to those well-deserved kudos.”  AudioFile
