He is also the author of numerous sports-related mysteries and adventures for young readers, including Backfield Boys and The Prodigy. His first YA mystery, Last Shot, won the Edgar Allen Poe Award.

"Feinstein does a good job of driving his tale down the fairway by putting his protagonist through a series of spectacular feats and comebacks on real courses and filling out his cast with actual renowned golf pros, journalists, and officials . . . Well below par. . .in the very best sense." --Kirkus Reviews

"A definite must-read for golfers and perhaps other sports fans. Readers unfamiliar with golf will learn a lot about how the tournaments operate, and any reader will feel compassion for a teen viewed as a commodity in an adult world." --VOYA

"Though some may not equate the sport of golf with suspense, Feinstein creates realistic tension, dramatic comebacks, and astounding feats that will leave readers rooting for the protagonist. . .Add this compelling story to libraries with sports fiction fans." --School Library Journal

"[Feinstein] has written a golf-themed tale intended for a young adult audience--though this reviewer believes golf enthusiasts of any age will enjoy it. . .Feinstein is a gifted storyteller and his narrative moves at a swift pace." --Met Golfer
