MASTERING AUGUSTA
Posted by Jon Littman on January 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

Metro Spirit, Augusta’s Independent Voice, phoned me last week and Editor Stacey Eidson wrote a wonderful piece about my new book Crashing Augusta, my collection of wild sports stories.

AUGUSTA, GA -When Jonathan Littman, a best-selling author and a contributing editor at Playboy, headed to Augusta to attend the Masters a few years ago, he wanted to achieve the impossible: experience the world’s most prestigious golf tournament for less than $100 a day.

“For a long time I’ve been an author, but for the last several years I’ve also been a contributing editor for Playboy,” Littman says from his California home. “And I’ve been able to do some really fun and wild stories with Playboy, so I dreamed up this idea of doing the non-CBS approved story of the Masters.

“I wanted to show people how to have a great time at the tournament, give them sort of a sense of the aura of the place and tell them how to do it on $99 a day.”

In his new book, “Crashing Augusta,” Littman showcases his tale about the Masters tournament in a collection of stories that take readers “beyond the ropes of professional sports,” he says.

Here’s the Metro Spirit story, along with some great pictures of the Masters.
