Overview

Did I Make Par? is a story about Charlie Caldwell, a professional golfer that originally had his fifteen minutes of fame when he blew the US Open on the last hole. Charlie marries the girl and ends up with the perfect job as a club professional. He and the club do well under Charlie's thirty years.

Charlie begins to have memory problems in his fifties and they progressively get worse. Eventually, the memory problems are diagnosed as Alzheimer's and he's forced to leave his club job.

Charlie's son, Mikey, arrives on the scene and helps his parents prepare for the future. In the process of selling many of their household items, Charlie rescues his golf clubs. Mikey takes Charlie golfing and despite not knowing which club to hit, Charlie's golf skills are flawless.

Mikey enters his father into several tournaments and eventually he qualifies for the US Senior Open. Having Alzheimer's creates special issues for Charlie and for the other golfers and these are highlighted in the book. Eventually, Charlie finishes the tournament and though he doesn't win the tournament, he has won the crowds.

Kindle - Gil Wilson
I enjoyed the book. It was an easy read and kept me involved in the main character. I would recommend it to anyone who likes golf and enjoyed Tin Cup.

Meet the Author

I currently live in San Antonio, TX with my partner in life, Leslie. We have four children and seven grandchildren and all are living successful lives in California.

I am a retired US Army Warrant Officer and spent most of the last 40 years living in overseas locations such as Germany, Turkey, Vietnam, Japan, Okinawa and various other spots on the globe.

I started writing several years ago and now that I'm fully retired, I want to take it up again. I love to read what others have written and I try to pick up ideas and techniques that they may use to get their point across. Hopefully, I will improve each and every day.
