For the first time in golf book history, here's a true story that brings golf and its characters to life through intimate scenes that explain why we love our great game. Written in the new blended novel format (using fiction based on nonfiction to show the whole story), this book reads like a movie. Set in Philadelphia in the 50's, the story revolves around a boy who is saved from a life of abuse by becoming a caddy. He eventually wins the second golf scholarship given in the state of Pennsylvania (Arnold Palmer got the first one). The story plays out through riveting scenes around an old Donald Ross course. The golf teachings that the old caddies and members on this course pass down to the young caddies show why the game of golf is so addictive to us. The book's poignant finish makes you want to go out and play, and it shows you that you can discover your unique gifts through golf even if your life began in pain.

About the Author:

Bob Thomas is a writer who uses the new blended novel (fiction laid over nonfiction) approach to capture the essence of the game of golf. With the non-fiction novel, a writer can bring to life difficult scenes that cut to the core of what the game of golf is really about. This blended style may be the only writing style able to capture the full spirit of the game, which requires us to combine our hearts, minds and spirits with cold, hard facts. It takes a full cadre of golf course participants and scenes between various characters to do that. Thomas is the author of Ben Hogan's Secret, the first non-fiction novel written about a real golfer. Ben Hogan's Secret was well received by the golfing community, garnering over fifty positive reviews.

Review:

Golfers will love it, but non-golfers will enjoy this book too. It should appeal to children and adults alike. -- Tom Ierubino, former Managing Editor of Golf Magazine Online
