Golf's 'Longest Shot' for Father's Day 1
Yours truly with Jack Fleck, the oldest-living U.S. Open champion.

WITH FATHER’S DAY COMING SOON, please consider ordering my book, THE LONGEST SHOT: Jack Fleck, Ben Hogan, and Pro Golf’s Greatest Upset at the 1955 U.S. Open. It’s available in hardcover, Kindle and Nook editions at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other places books are sold (see links in right-hand sidebar).

THE LONGEST SHOT was selected as one of the Top 10 Sports Books of 2012 by Booklist, the book-review magazine of the American Library Association. It was the only golf book to make the prestigious list.

“The story of unheralded Jack Fleck’s triumph over the great Ben Hogan in the 1955 U.S. Open golf championship is one of sports’ greatest upset stories,” said Booklist, “and Sagebiel tells it superbly, wringing every ounce of poignancy and drama out of the action.”
