Inside the Ropes and Behind the Scenes on the PGA Tour
Find out what really goes on at the PGA Tour as John Strege takes you on a rare insider's tour of Tournament Week. This chronological and anecdotal excursion reveals surprising facts about golfers' habits and secrets, following them every step of the way during this climactic week. 'Tournment Week' begins with the red carpet unrolled for them on Monday, to the gambling practice rounds on Tuesday, on to Wednesday's dealing with amateurs, straight through to Sunday, the ultimate payday in professional golf, when the pressure mounts and even the most poised golfer is prone to choke.
This unique behind-the-scenes perspective also examines the practice round, where often more is going on than one would suspect, including high-stakes gambling games. Strege also reveals how John Daly, who is under endorsement, will often give away his entire set of golf clubs - usually after an indifferent round - to the first child he sees by the 18th green.
