4.5 Stars: Golfmagic.com Reviews ‘THE LONGEST SHOT’

ANOTHER REVIEW OF MY NEW GOLF BOOK from the eastern side of the Atlantic Ocean is in. Golfmagic.com, a top UK golf website and community, has published a review of THE LONGEST SHOT: Jack Fleck, Ben Hogan, and Pro Golf’s Greatest Upset at the 1955 U.S. Open.

Giving THE LONGEST SHOT 4.5 stars out of 5, Golfmagic.com called the story “a fascinating insight into an improbable champion.”

Following are excerpts from their review and write-up:
The result of expert research and analysis from golf blogger Neil Sagebiel, THE LONGEST SHOT tells the fascinating tale of Jack Fleck—a journeyman club pro who beat Ben Hogan in a playoff at the 1955 US Open, still regarded as the biggest upset in golf history. Golfmagic has read the book and we thoroughly enjoyed it....

[The book] also gives a fascinating insight into Hogan’s character, avoiding death by inches in a [1949] car crash to become one of the game’s great icons....

For many reasons the book is particularly poignant.
Golfmagic.com also wrote “more images would be nice.” I understand and agree. (This was my first book. There were circumstances and constraints that prevented me from putting together a better photo insert.) Golfmagic.com also said “but the author’s imaginative narrative more than makes up for it.”

I hope you’ll consider picking up and reading THE LONGEST SHOT. Please also tell others.
