Book Review: Trials and Triumphs of Golf’s Greatest Champions

Howdy, before I get at it there is some housekeeping to attend to. For starters, this review is made possible by TLC Book Tours, who provided me with a copy of the book for review. Secondly and most importantly, I have never done a book review before so hang in there for me. I debated reading a bunch of reviews beforehand to get a better grasp on how they flow, but decided that would come across too manufactured and artificial.

Who Do I Cheer For In The Masters?
