One year after his big golf tournament win, Travis McKinley struggles to find a place in the world of professional sports in this inspiring novel.
A year ago, unknown golfing amateur Travis McKinley shocked the world by winning the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach. Now he's famous, he makes his living playing the game he loves, and everything should be perfect. Still, Travis can't shake the feeling that he's a fraud, an imposter who doesn't deserve his success-and after a series of disappointments and personal screw-ups, he might just prove himself right.
A shot at redemption arrives in an unexpected form: a teenage outcast with troubles of his own . . . and a natural golf swing. As this unlikely duo sets out to achieve the impossible on the world's most revered golf course, Travis is about to learn that sometimes the greatest miracles of all take place when no one is watching.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I found the book an easy relaxing read. Many times I discovered myself smiling as I read it. James Patterson reminds us a few times lightly that this is fiction, but to me it is everyday life with errors corrected, new friends made, some from just helping others and the dream of playing Augusta National made all the more rewarding by "sneaking in"
If you like stories that are mindless and over the top preposterous, then go for it. Getting a kid to be able to bust 80 from the tips at Augusta National; let alone how the story gets him there; is one tall stretch. Has its moments, but no more Patterson Miracle books for me.
Yes Read It!
Miracle at Augusta is a must read for all of us hopeless golf hackers. You get to experience so many of the same feelings we all have out there on the links. The game is played so much in your head and Patterson really understands this. You are also likely to have Tin Cup flashbacks as you read. A very fun read!!
