Summary

Now in paperback-the unforgettable story of the 1973 U.S. Open and the unknown young golfer who astonished the world. In 1973, a Who's Who of golf greats gathered at Oakmont Country Club for the U.S. Open. Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus were among those favored to win. Instead, 26-year-old Johnny Miller edged out the legends and crafted a record-setting 63 to win by a single stroke. With fascinating profiles of Miller, Palmer, Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Tom Weiskopf, and John Schlee, Chasing Greatness beautifully captures one of the unlikeliest victories and most dramatic sports triumphs of the past half century.
