Growing Up With Golf, subtitled The Wellington Stories, follows young Wellington and friend Finley for nine years of their golfing lives. This nine-story collection commences with the boys' first stabbing swings. By book's end, these buddies are driving cars as well as golf balls, and their friendship has been through more than one seemingly unplayable lie. Among the hazards faced by Wellie and Fin are little brothers, big girls, crude cousins, parental love, and, of course, golf's thorny spells. There's much to be learned here by golfing "children" of any age. The stories hinge on timeless golf dilemmas, making Wellie and Fin more than just a cute twosome who swear a tad. With a sure sense of golfing psychology, the author has chipped in earthy chunks of our game's natural humor, rendering each tale a satisfying whole.

Conceived by one of the foremost golf-fiction writers of the late twentieth century, this collection of nine stories brings the demands, complexities, and joys of our game into sharp focus through the eyes of two young golfing friends.
Growing Up With Golf exhibits a gentle charm, sly humor, and multiple lessons about becoming a mature player, making this book a suitable gift for golfing "children" of all ages. Please be advised, however, that Wellington and Finley do cuss a bit, as young male golfers will.
