Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If you were writing a job description for a caddie on the PGA tour, it would include "counselor, coach, politician, statistician, meteorologist, golfer, craftsman, cheerleader, scapegoat, landscape architect... friend...[and] an enduring walking machine." Carrick has performed the job for over 20 years, 17 of them with pro golfer Tom Kite. Here he explains what a caddie does and how the caddie/player relationship works. The balance of the book is a caddie's-eye view of steps the average golfer can take to improve his game. Written in clear and entertaining prose, this is a useful addition to the literature of golf, and it should be added to most sports collections. Carrick is president of the Professional Tour Caddie's Association; coauthor Duno has written several books, including The Kiss Guide to Golf.--Terry Madden, Boise State Univ.
