Description
 
Steve Eubanks (au); Frank Deford (fr). The Augusta Nat. Golf Club in eastern Georgia is an Amer. icon shrouded in intrigue, as exclusive as its prestigious Masters Tournament. Behind the memorable tournament play, however, resides a secretive & clannish club with a gentlemen-only membership of 300, incl. many of the most powerful CEOs & exec. in Amer. Augusta was co-founded more than 60 years ago by Bobby Jones, & Clifford Roberts. Here, Eubanks investigates the founding of the club & design of its golf course; the exclusion of African-Amer. Charlie Sifford; Augusta’s relationship with CBS; & the Tiger Woods-Fuzzy Zoeller brouhaha of 1997. Also, the rise of Arnold Palmer, & the 1997 coronation of Tiger Woods, the first masters winner of African-Amer. heritage. B&W photos.
