"Exciting golf history combined with the poignant personal story of Stewart's life and death."
---Booklist

"You don't have to be from North Carolina to understand what happened at the 1999 U.S. Open, and how it fe< it was an Open brushed by an angel's wing, an Open that in retrospect seems almost fictional.... That Sunday in Pinehurst, when it all happened there in the mist, is one of the most memorable days in the history of the U.S. Open. Everything about it is more profound now, and yet somehow unreal."
---Ron Green Sr., PGATOUR.com columnist and author of Shouting at Amen Corner

"While the 1999 U.S. Open may not have been the greatest Open ever, through Chastain's effort it now makes the short list."
---bookreporter.com

"Chastain's book is a thoughtful look at one of America's favorite golfers and at a tournament that raised his status to near legend."
---News & Record (Greensboro, North Carolina)
