Yahoo! More Reviews of 'DRAW IN THE DUNES'

FOLLOWING ARE MORE REVIEWS of my new Ryder Cup book, DRAW IN THE DUNES: The 1969 Ryder Cup and the Finish That Shocked the World. The book, which includes a foreword by Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin, is in bookstores and also available online at the usual places in hardcover and ebook editions.

YAHOO! Sports (Devil Ball Golf) by Jay Busbee (October 17):
"'Draw in the Dunes,' a new book from Neil Sagebiel, tells the story of an astonishing act of sportsmanship at the Ryder Cup, and does so in compelling fashion....Sagebiel had to work without the benefit of complete telecasts in setting his stage, and he does so magnificently, from the varying personalities to the varying locales charted in the story. He draws on the recollections of the participants, and even got Nicklaus and Jacklin to write a foreword for the book. Simply put, this is the definitive account of one of golf's great stories of sportsmanship and honor."

The Roanoke Times by Ralph Berrier Jr. (October 19):
"...[Jack] Nicklaus’ famous concession is just the beginning of “Draw in the Dunes,” the enjoyably readable piece of sports history from Neil Sagebiel, a nationally prominent golf blogger and author from Floyd who has a reputation for digging up interesting golf stories and telling them as deftly as a PGA pro handles a 9-iron around the green. Sagebiel’s previous golf book, 'The Longest Shot,' was one of Booklist’s top 10 sports books of 2012 and earned him worthy comparisons to other top golf writers such as John Feinstein."
