In the Depression year of 1931, on the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannahs windswept shore, two legends of the game - Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen - meet for a mesmerizing thirty-six hole showdown.
They are joined by another player, a troubled war hero called Rannulph Junah. But the key to the outcome lies not with these golfing titans but with Junahs caddie and mentor, the mysterious, sage and charismatic Bagger Vance - for he is the custodian of the secret of the Authentic Swing...
Written in the spirit of Bernard Malamuds The Natural and sharing the magic of the celebrated Kevin Costner film Field of Dreams, Steven Pressfields first novel reveals the true nature of the game.
Page-turning, spellbinding and affecting, it is a novel for golfers and non-golfers alike - a story in which the search for the Authentic Swing becomes a metaphor for the search for the Authentic Self.
