    Quick & fun read

    Breezy and entertaining read of the days of yesteryear. Old Hollywood intrigue is awash in this story of a man more people should have heard of. Loaded with celebrity and old time golf references. Book comes up a bit short in the long run, but that is probably because the main character does such in real life.

    Excellent, excellent book!

    Really a good book and a must read! Thoroughly enjoyed the book. I believe that Montague was a great golfer and could beat the best of them. Remember, he was in his 30's. Sounds like he never wanted to beat the competition by too much, because he wanted them to keep coming back. Later, he lived the "good" life too much and threw away his talent by drinking, etc. I am a believer in his skill, wish I was around at the time and could have actually seen him. Shame he ended up how he did - what happened to all of his "friends"?

    Walter Hagen Wanna Be With Robbery Thrown In.

    I did finish the book and at this point I have no reason why. Just kept going through the pages in hopes of something mysterious. Finally realized the the most mysterious thing was Montague was no mystery. Just another criminal con man on the run. Remember what P.T. Barnum said!!!!!!!!!

    Interesting Read

    The Mysterious Montague was a Hollywood legend, the question is was he really the best golfer of his time or was it mostly Hollywood myth? The book gives the reader enough information to come to the conclusion that Montague was a good golfer but probably not the best, and there is also no doubt Montague could tee it up and beat the best golfers Hollywood had to offer in his prime. It is well worth the time to read.
