あらすじ・解説

Francis Ouimet and Harry Vardon came from different worlds and different generations, but their passion for golf set them on parallel paths that would collide in the greatest match their sport had ever known.

A young Massachusetts native, Francis was only three years removed from his youthful career as a lowly caddie. Harry was twice his age, the greatest British champion in history, and innovator of the modern grip and swing. Through exacting hard work, perseverance, and determination, Harry Vardon had escaped a hopeless life of poverty; the unknown Ouimet dared to dream of following in his hero's footsteps. When the two men finally came together in their legendary battle at the 1913 US Open, its heart-stopping climax gave rise to the sport of golf as we know it today.

Weaving the stories of Ouimet and Vardon as his narrative, Mark Frost creates a uniquely involving, intimate epic that is equal parts sports biography, sweeping social history, and emotional human drama. The Greatest Game Ever Played is a must-listen for millions of sports and history fans - and all who have ever dared to reach for their dreams.

One of the Greatest Golf Stories ever writen

My all time favorite golf film is the one based on this book and this story blows away the movie. Along with The Match (also written by Mark Frost), The Greatest Game Ever Played are by far two of my favorite books ever read or listened to.

If you're a golfer and/or love the game, this book will take you back to a different era of the sport to a time of some of that generations greatest sportsman and ambassadors.

The book is enthralling, captivating, and has not one dull moment. I highly suggest listening to this exquisitely told story of Francis Ouimet and Harry Vardon and everything that lead up to and after the 1913 US Open.

The Greatest Game is The Greatest Audiobook

Although I had read the book many years earlier, I chanced to give this a listen and I thank my good Lord that I did. This incredible story, amazingly written and enhanced by flawless, brilliant narration is an experience that I will cherish my entire life.

My all-time favorite book

The reading is excellent. I’ve read the book two or three times, and I’ve listened to it two or three times. It’s a beautifully written, about a story that is too incredible not to be true. Harry and Francis’s are woven together so well, and shows how similar two people who seemed so different. The movie is good, the book is awesome! You will not be disappointed.

Outstanding!

I would listen to this book on my daily walks and felt the great emotion of this historic event. The book covers great detail of the scores and shots made and missed. Provides great feelings towards the competitors. The summary chapter is awesome as you hear of how each of the golfers continued their careers and feelings of love towards golf.

Fascinating?

Either if you play golf or you haver never heard a word about it, this book is fascinating. The story is detailed and exciting. The narration is perfect, specially considering this is not a 2hr book, but you'll enjoy every chapter in it.

Not a golf fan, but really enjoyed the MOVIE....

...Which in my humble opinion is (a rarity) better. Not to say this isn’t a solid 4 stars but I found it somewhat confusing and - a little bit tedious - and I often found myself drifting. But that the nature of watching golf, right? In any event, not bad.
But the Movie is better.

Riveting stuff!

Far superior to the silly Disney movie, this is a brilliant book. Note to the reader though, its Carnoustie, not Carnoutsie.
