Every two years, twelve men from the United States and twelve men from Europe compete for the pinnacle of professional golf - the Ryder Cup. With scores of telling historical references, Heartbreak Hill is Tim Rosaforte's masterful behind-the-scenes look at the 1995 Ryder Cup matches at the Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York. The Ryder Cup competition has brought grown men to tears, caused the iciest veins to overheat, and the world's most intelligent strategists to make mind-boggling errors in judgment. Lanny Wadkins and his "dream team" were supposed to be a sure thing, and as expected, they led the first two days' matches by a substantial two-point margin. Only a miracle could bring European captain Bernard Gallacher and his team back to claim the cup. Rosaforte captures the dramatic holes-in-one, the clutch chips, the joys and numbing disappointments that led to the most spectacular comeback in the sixty-eight year history of the Ryder Cup. Heartbreak Hill is a must-have for every weekend golfer and armchair fan.
