Description & Features+

Long before any of the players actually hit a golf ball, the 1975 Masters Tournament was destined for the record books. Lee Elder, the first African-American ever invited to the exclusive Augusta club’s tourney, was among the veritable Hall of Fame-list of competitors: Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Hale Irwin, Billy Casper, and Sam Snead. But Elder missed the cut, rattled by the media attention, and by the weekend, the tourney’s most significant moment was overshadowed by a showdown of the game’s three heavyweights: Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, and Tom Weiskopf. Their back-and-forth battle would rivet the golfing world and dramatically culminate in one of the greatest finishes in Masters history. Gil Capps, a twenty-year veteran of the golf industry and NBC Sports producer, recaptures hole-by-hole the thrilling drama of this singular event from golf’s golden era, from the media-crazed build-up to the tournament's final dramatic putt that would change the game of golf forever.
