Praise for Curt Sampson

The Masters
"Jack Nicklaus may own six green jackets, but no one has captured the Masters like Sampson."                                    -The (Baton Rouge) Advocate

"Sampson has put together a great story of a powerful institution."

"[Curt Sampson’s] fine new book, The Masters, is the only way we mortals are ever going to gain entrée to the hallowed Augusta National Golf Club."
–The Dallas Morning News

"Curt Sampson has dissected Ben Hogan and what he is about in greater detail than anyone. This is a fascinating look at perhaps the most feared and revered golfer of all time."       –Ben Crenshaw

"A superb and insightful portrait of the most elusive and complex champion in golf history . . . worth every damn cent you’re asked for it."      
–Guy Yocom, Golf Digest

"Rings true as a Hogan iron to the green."   –Sam Blair, The Dallas Morning News

The Eternal Summer
"I must congratulate Curt Sampson for his passion for the game as well as his skill with a pen. . . . The Eternal Summer will make you feel like you are there at Augusta, Cherry Hills, St. Andrews, and many other places. I know. I was there."           –Dan Jenkins

"Moving, vivid, and funny . . . never a dull moment. . . . The Eternal Summer is the most enjoyable book on any subject I’ve read in a long time."
–Jack Purcell, Jr., publisher, Southern Links

"Nineteen-sixty was as interesting a year in golf as I’ve ever known. Curt Sampson has captured it perfectly and perceptively. This book should be in every golfer’s library."      –Ben Wright, CBS-TV
