Book – Seven Days in Augusta: Behind the Scenes at the Masters – $24.95
For the vast majority of golf fans who are interested in following the Masters tournament each year, their only contact or association with Augusta National Golf Club is gained solely by watching the event on television. Further curiosity about ANGC may even warrant an internet search.
But then there are a select few who obtain tickets, are admitted to the grounds, and view the annual tradition in person. These patrons gain a perspective about the inner workings of the Masters that is an entire step above the perspective of those viewers who merely watch the airwaves telecast.
However, there comes a way to bridge the information gap between ‘couch viewership’ and ‘in person attendance’ — a new book by author Mark Cannizzaro entitled “Seven Days in Augusta“, and its subtitle “Behind the Scenes at the Masters” is what the book is all about.
