THE WAR BY THE SHORE
Relive the strange but true story of the 1991 Ryder Cup–When golf lost its manners and, to some extent, its mind. With its competitive fire stoked by losing, and by accusations of choking, and by the super-patriotic backdrop of the recently won Gulf War, the US side fought desperately for a win at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. Curt Sampson captures the moment in a hypnotic re-telling of that long weekend in South Carolina. No event in golf history—and few events in history of sports—have approached the incredible theatre of The War By The Shore.
