About this title


The successful author and journalist describes how, at the age of forty-three, a mid-life crisis sent him on a quest to rediscover a dream that he had given up more than twenty years earlier, to reenter the world of competitive golf and make the PGA tour


At 18, Harry Hurt's goal was to become a pro golfer. At 19, he virtually gave up the game. Almost a quarter century later, now an accomplished journalist, he went out again on a quixotic quest to make the golf tour. He got his wish--on a secondary circuit for over-40s--but, as they say, be careful what you wish for. Hurt's recounting of his year is filled with frustration, a scorecard's worth of admitted self-deception, and just enough triumph to keep him going. His prose captures highs and lows well, and his narrative offers some engaging insight into the mindset of professional golf, and some of the teachers and players--including Greg Norman, Ben Crenshaw, and Fred Couples--he meets, and learns from, as he navigates his impracticable course.
