    A golf novel all hackers who love the game will appreciate

    There aren't many good golf novels and this one is funny with a capital F. It really reminds me of the group I play with. If you love golf and gamble now and then you'll get a kick out of it.

    Eddie and Troon..The Best

    The Eddie Caminetti novels are by far the best golf fiction ever written, including The Green.

    An Unrealistic Let-Down

    Pros 'straining' to hit 290-yard drives and frequently laying up short of par 4s from nothing but light rough? Gimme a break. The book promises something and never delivers. The writer never overcomes the objections to the preposterous story - a hustler playing in the Ryder Cup. Instead, mired in an unbelievable story with unbelievable characters, many of which are simply caricatures of real-life PGA Tour pros, the writer plods along to a boring ending: a missed putt. Yawwwwwn.

    Great Golf Fiction

    I'm not much of a sports fiction fan, but this was a tremendous book -- and that would seem to be especially difficult when it comes to golf. The author does an outstanding job of describing what the Ryder Cup is all about, how teams are chosen, the playing format, etc., and makes it understandable for even the non-golfer. This book should be made into a movie. Reading it one can imagine what actors would play what roles and I guarantee it would present better on the screen than did Tin Cup. Great book and I look forward to reading the sequel, The Foursome.

    250 down the middle

    'The Green' is a very clever book. It mixes in thinly disguised real-life players with Ryder Cup action that all golf fans can relate to. But, the highlight of the book is Eddie Camminetti. I hate to say it, but I've incorporated some of Eddie's tips into my own golf game and they have made a difference. I'm not ready to give golf advice to the President, but Eddie's outlook on the game is sound and practicable. I was never sure where this book was going, but it was fun making the trip.
