Overview

He had the one of the best careers the game has ever known - yet you won't find his record in any of golf's history books. He defeated almost every one of golf's legendary players in head-to-head matches - yet you can't read about them in any of the old sports pages. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, his closest friend was the greatest amateur to ever play the game - yet Bobby Jones never spoke his name in public.

J. Michael Veron's tale about one of golf's most talented and mysterious figures - and the man who solves this mystery - is a rare triumph in golf fiction. Like few others before it, The Greatest Player Who Never Lived is much more than a golf book - it's about perseverance over adversity, and friendship over abandonment. Without a doubt, this beautifully written, heart-warming story is certain to be enjoyed by all lovers of exceptional fiction. The Greatest Player Who Never Lived...is a winner.

Editorial Reviews

Mike Snider
The Greatest Player Who Never Lived is a fictional tale that mixes crime, mystery and courtroom drama against a background of golf history.
USA Today
Miami Herald
If you have ever played just one round of golf, and appreciate clear, spare writing with a touch of To Kill a Mockingbird, you will love this book.
Los Angeles Times
Skillfully written, Beau Stedman leaps off the pages and becomes one of the game's greatest players.
Seattle Post
It is dual parts John Grisham and John Feinstein, a legal mystery with golf backbone. I kept checking the front disclaimer to make sure the book was a fictional account. This book is a keeper.
