About the Author
Praise For The Match: The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever…
"Frost weaves an exceptional narrative . . . It's a gripping tale--as good as James Patterson, John Grisham, or any other contemporary novelist could create. And all true. The match comes down to the 18th hole, and you'll be the winner once you turn the last page."
"Frost masterfully puts the reader not just on the scene, but in the time, too, with terrific storytelling."—The State (South Carolina)
"It's difficult to beat a good golf book, be it a good yarn or a picture book. . . . The golf is spectacular, the course more so, the descriptions luminous."—USA Today
"The untold story of golf's greatest money match, featuring Hogan and Nelson at Cypress Point, comes to life in Mark Frost's gripping new book, The Match."—Golf Magazine
"Frost captures an elusive magic in this improbable matchup and what it meant for those who played and witnessed it."—Publishers Weekly
"The Match was a dream I never thought would come true. If I hadn't been there I wouldn't believe it myself, and if you know anything about sports or the game of golf, once you pick up this book you won't put it down. No one will ever see an event like this again. Fiction can't touch it."—Ken Venturi
