Draw in the Dunes In 1969, the 42 year history of biennial golf matches between the United States and Great Britain reached its climax The U.S., led by Jack Nicklaus, had dominated competitive golf for years Great Britain, led by Tony Jacklin, was the undisputed underdog But in spite of having lost 14 of 17 Ryder Cups in the past, the British entered the 1969 Ryder Cup as determined as the Americans were dominant What followed was the most compelling, controversial, and contentious Ryder Cup the sport had ever seen Draw in the Dunes is a story of personal and professional conflict, from the nervousness displayed at the very beginning of the Ryder Cup matches when one man could not tee his golf ball to the nerve displayed by Nicklaus and Jacklin, who battled each other all the way to the final moment of the final match Throughout the Cup, 17 of the 32 matches were not decided until the final hole Most electrifying was Nicklaus and Jacklin s contest, which decided the fate of the Ryder Cup At the last putt, Nicklaus conceded to Jacklin, keeping the cup for the Americans while letting the British walk away with their most successful Ryder Cup result in years From this event, which came to be known as The Concession, Nicklaus and Jacklin forged a lifelong friendship and ushered in a new era of golf.From the author of the critically acclaimed golf history The Longest Shot, Draw in the Dunes is the gripping account of a legendary Cup competition, and the story of golf s greatest act of sportsmanship.

  5. Solid golf book Some good stories, especially about the game that almost came to blows No two and a half footer to force a tie for the Ryder Cup would be conceded in this day and age That s a fact.
