The Legend of Bagger Vance was a fun read. If it had been any longer, I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much, but it gets right to the point, bringing out the mysticism and real struggle involved in golf or any other sport, and then extending the metaphysical message out to encompass all of life. The narration itself is good but nothing special- this book is really about the message.
In the Depression year of 1931, on the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windsweptshore,two legends of the game, Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen, meet for a mesmereizing thirty-six-hole showdown. Along comes another golfer who will compete. Bagger Vance is a troubled local war hero. Once a champion, who comes with his mentor and caddie. It is Vance who holds the secret of the Authentic Swing. He will be the one who shows his protege the way back to glory.
