Summary, etc.: The sports world watched breathlessly as Watson, just shy of his 60th birthday and twenty-six years after his last Open title, battled Father Time through four amazing rounds at Turnberry before falling in a heartbreaking playoff to fellow American Stewart Cink. In Four Days in July, Jim Huber mines his exclusive interviews with Watson, caddy Neil Oxman, Cink (dubbed "The Man Who Shot Santa Claus"), and many other luminaries to recount a heroic tale of resilience, grit, and determination. This unforgettable story of the greatest links player ever and his courageous quest will appeal to athletes of all ages.
