About this title

Synopsis:

Frank Christian comes from a line of well-known photographers. The Christian family has been photographing the Augusta National Golf Club since before it's inception in 1933. Frank Christian's photographs have appeared in all the leading golf magazines, and more than 50 books.

Review:

Like his father before him, Frank Christian is a devoted Augusta watcher. Their family photos are a virtual who's who of golf greatness, and because the Christian name is high on the leader board of golf photographers, many of the shots that make up this scrapbook--the candids, the action shots, and the behind-the-scenes glimpses--are as classic as a Sneadapproach or a PlayerPlayer pitch. No single image ever captured the complexly patriarchal and patronizing spirit of Augusta National better than Christian's elaborate staging of club co-founder Clifford Roberts, a martinet of a man who once suggested that Easter should be postponed because it conflicted with the Masters' final round. Roberts is captured apparently walking on water with his white-suited black caddie, waist-deep and sinking, toting Roberts's golf bag behind him. Masters devotees will doubtless find its inclusion alone worth the greens fees.
