Tales from Q School by John Feinstein

Flying home to Baltimore, I read about Tales from Q School: Inside Golf’s Fifth Major by John Feinstein, the best selling author of of A Good Walk Spoiled.

Q School is what they call the annual PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament where veterans and rookies play six rounds to get a shot at one of 30 slots on the PGA Tour. John Feinstein tells the story of the players from the 2005 Q School from struggling former champions to rising stars (including J.B. Holmes, winner of the 2006 FBR Open, and Brett Wetterich, winner of the 2006 EDS Byron Nelson Championship and member of the 2006 Ryder Cup team).

I don’t even play golf but the reviews make it seem like Tales from Q School tells the compelling human story of the players, many of whom will never make it to the PGA Tour!
