Reseña del editor
For years Phil Mickelson symbolised the classic runner-up of sport. Always placing near the top of every tournament, always near the top of the earnings list but never winning one of the majors! Then finally, on one magical Sunday in 2004, his dream came true when he won the US Masters in Augusta, sinking an 18 foot putt on the last hole to beat Ernie Els by just one stroke. Mickelson's leap of celebration was seen around the world and millions of golf fans leapt for joy with him.
ONE MAGICAL SUNDAY takes us round the course, hole by hole and stroke by stroke, but as it does so the book interweaves Phil's life - from his introduction to the game aged 3, to his All-American career at Arizona State University, to his decision to turn pro, the courtship of and marriage to his wife Amy and how they balance family life with three young children with his career.
Funny, poignant, entertaining and above all, a candid play by play of his greatest victory, winning the Masters on that magical Sunday and all told in his own voice.

--R. HOWE / ERSKINE, MINNESOTA
I am not sure what it is about Phil Mickelson that earned the love and respect of nearly every golf fan, and in this book, Mickelson wonders the same thing. There is something about us as Americans that makes us root for the underdog - the Rocky Balboas, the Boston Redsoxes, and the Phil Mickelsons of the world seem to epitomize everything that is America - the belief that dreams can come true, even in the face of adversity. And as quaint as that may sound, those beliefs come to life in this book.
This book takes us on a roller coaster ride of all 18 final holes at Augusta National, but much more than that, this is a story of a man who truly feels he is more blessed to have the love and support of his family more so than a major championship.
Sprinkled between a play-by-play recap of the final round of the 2004 Master's, are little anecdotes about Phil's life - from his childhood in San Diego through his college years at ASU through the birth of his three children, we become privy to a world of Phil Mickelson that most of us never knew, and we get to meet the people who helped shape Phil's life and influence him the most - from his parents to his college golf coach to his wife and kids.
The result? You walk away liking the guy even more than you already did, which is no small feat considering how much he was admired to begin with. This is a quick read and a real gem for golf fans and anyone who loves a great story of an underdog's triumph.
