Description
In 2006, the BBC celebrates 20 years of Masters coverage and has been awarded the longest television contract and commitment ever given by the Masters committee. Steve Rider leads the coverage in 2006. The BBC's involvement with the Masters has coincided with the greatest run of success that European golf has ever enjoyed at a Major event.

This success has been coupled with extraordinary stories of golfing endeavour and it is these stories, plus much more, that are celebrated in this book. It is written with the close cooperation of Seve Ballesteros, now a BBC commentator, who achieved the breakthrough for European golf when he became the youngest player to win at Augusta in 1980. But Seve also tells of his epic battle with Jack Nicklaus in 1986, and the fateful shot at the fifteenth that not only finished his challenge but also, he feels, ended his reign as one of the greatest players in the world.

Sandy Lyle offers his own perspective on '86. The Open Champion was playing partner to Nicklaus in the epic final round and two years later made history of his own as the first British player to win the title, clinching victory with a bunker shot at the eighteenth which is still rated as one of the greatest shots the sport has ever seen.
