Description


Experience the thrill, twenty-five years later, of Steve Scott's epic finals match against Tiger Woods in the 1996 United States Amateur Championship!
In August of ‘96, Steve Scott went head to head against Tiger Woods at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in the finals of the US Amateur Championship. Five thousand three hundred forty-five players whittled down to two. Scott found himself a surprising 5-up after the first 18, but at hole 35 Tiger squared the grueling match with an improbable 40-foot birdie putt. With the result coming down to the last hole, the difference in the outcome actually came earlier, when Scott reminded Woods to move his mark back to its rightful place on hole 34. Had Scott not done the morally correct thing, Tiger would have been penalized and, in turn, not have won three straight U.S. Amateur Championships (something not even the great Jack Nicklaus or legendary Bobby Jones had done), forever changing the course of Tiger’s career and golf history.

In Hey, Tiger—You Need to Move Your Mark Back, Scott teams up with esteemed storyteller Tripp Bowden to explain, twenty-five years later, what led to that life-changing moment and to describe, in his own words, the exhilaration of that ‘96 U. S. Amateur Championship and how it ultimately changed golf history and the two competitors' lives.

Forever.

Hey Tiger—You Need to Move Your Mark Back is a story for the ages for golf fans looking for an unlikely new perspective on the greatest game in the world.

Praise For…


“I witnessed an act of incredible sportsmanship by Steve Scott in that epic US Amateur finals match at Pumpkin Ridge back in 1996. I applauded it at the time, and even more so today." —PHIL KNIGHT, cofounder of Nike

“The ’96 US Amateur had all the check marks on it. It was the first big golf event that I ever hosted with a prime-time audience, and it was truly magical stuff. Steve Scott and Tiger Woods will be attached in amateur golf history forever.”

—DAN HICKS, lead host of NBC’s award-winning golf coverage and the Olympic Games for nearly thirty years

“Of all the matches I reported as an analyst for almost thirty years for NBC Golf, Steve Scott’s finals match with Tiger was the Most Exciting Drama I ever witnessed in my career! It was so close to being one of the biggest upsets in golf history, had Steve not told Tiger to move his mark back.”

—JOHNNY MILLER, two-time major champion winner and world golf hall of famer

“Being there, witnessing game-changing history at Pumpkin Ridge, was one of the highlights of my time in serving golf. The act of sportsmanship of Steve Scott is was what makes golf so special. I will never forget it. It was the stuff, truly, of Bobby Jones.”

—RON READ, longtime starter for the US Open

Hey Tiger—is a beautiful story of these eight poignant moments in time: A two-time defending US Amateur champion, a thrilling and unbelievable comeback, a meaningful 'oh, by the way' act of sportsmanship, a girlfriend/caddie later to become a wife, the world’s wealthiest marshal, a captivating 38-hole marathon on national television., and a new USGA venue that would soon host 6 championships in 10 years. What a moment frozen in time for Pumpkin Ridge, Steve Scott, and Tiger Woods.”

—GAY DAVIS, cofounder of Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club

“This game we love so much has a central principal: Play the ball as it lies, play the course as you find it, and if you cannot do either, do what is fair. Hey Tiger—You Need to Move Your Mark Back, is Tripp Bowden’s fourth book. Bowden’s previous three tell many very different real-life golf stories, but all converge on the true spirit of golf—do what is fair, do what is right. Steve Scott did just that on the 34th hole of that unforgettable August 25th day at glorious Pumpkin Ridge. May all of us who play, and love golf, do the same.”

—DR. JOE, retired surgeon, active Episcopal priest at St. Paul’s in Augusta, Georgia

How To Read More

If you love reading, but for some reason you read less and less, know that everything is fine. It happens.
Our lives today have so many things that distract us - how can we not put books away when all these movies, TV shows, YouTube videos, social networks and endless surfing in online stores are around ...
Yes, it's really hard to resist, but you certainly can!

In this article, we want to share with you some tips to read more often and more successfully.
These are some notes and some practices that we have collected for our SUNDOG BOOKS readers club.
And maybe it will bring more books into your life!

Why do we want/need to read more?

To start reading more, you have to understand why you need it.
And you will be surprised, but your goals can be quite varied:

- for work
If you read a lot on duty, then you definitely need to speed up the process. The logic here is simple: read faster → work faster → more time for books for yourself.

- for education
you need this for your educational career or sometimes you just want to read to learn. And, with all the new alternative ways to gain knowledge (podcasts, online courses and videos), the book still does an excellent job of this task too.

- for self-development
all exercises for increasing speed, one way or another, improve cognition and memory.

- for fun
because good books always = fun!

Book lovers have an additional special goal for reading more often. If you love literature, you will understand what we mean: you want to catch everything - to follow modern literature, and not forget about the classics, look into non-fiction and children's publications. And there’s so much you want to reread! The goals are ambitious, but attainable if you read a lot.

 

And so - How to read more:
We will tell you about the methods that we use ourselves. Perhaps some will suit you as well.

 

15 minutes a day

You've probably already heard this rule: if you want to start a healthy habit, devote 15 minutes a day to it. Once upon a time, we all read irregularly, in jumps and starts. Sometimes we cannot open a book we have begun weeks ago. Therefore, you should decide to create a rule: devote at least 15 minutes a day to reading. Try reading before bed, or maybe during lunchtime, or even when you are having your morning coffee.

You will see progress immediately. You will notice that almost always your 15 minutes will grow into half an hour or more. But the most remarkable thing is that in three weeks your hands themselves will be looking for a book.

 

50 First Pages
This method advises - If the book hasn't hooked you from the first 50 pages, put it aside! Life is too short to read uninteresting books.

It is necessary to change the approach to books. At first it will be hard for you to stop and put the book down. Even if we put the book away, it will seem to reproach us from the shelf, mocking us as quitters. But in the end we should come to one simple thought: if it doesn’t hook your attention, you should not force yourself to read it.

***Fifty pages is not a bad test. Not the most objective, but definitely effective. It helps to determine whether it interests you or not, and whether to spend time on things that do not excite.

 

Reader's Diary

This should be used to improve the quality of reading - to make it more conscious. For starters, it can be a simple notebook with headings:

  • Author
  • Year of publication
  • Main characters
  • Scene
  • Plot
  • Theme
  • Quotes

And, yes, a reader's diary is not a thing about quantity, but about quality. But, it can also motivate. When you open your diary and start looking at quotes (especially quotes), you immediately really want to read.

 

Maybe a Book Bet?
Several people can participate. Members of the betting group can come from friends, family, and also your colleagues. And of course you can set your own rules for participation, but we'll give you a simple example:

Everyone in the group should read and review a book over the course of a month with weekly updates. Anyone who does not finish a review buys the book for all other participants for the next month.

 

Speed Reading

Another effective way to increase the amount you read is speed reading. The logic here is simple - the faster you read, the more books you can enjoy.

*There are many online courses on speed reading, and you can also study on your own using instructional books. But, it is worth noting that this is a serious learning process that will require some effort on your part.

 

Outcome

Reading every day is quite attainable, the main thing is to try to make it a habit.
Sometimes, instead of heading for Facebook, try opening a book and soon you won’t even remember why you needed to wander around social media.
And also - don't forget about audiobooks. They are a cool way to take the load off your eyes sometimes and just immerse yourself in the story. Some books are really strong in voice acting.
