Overview

Barclay Howard overcame years of alcoholism and a ban from the game of golf to reach the pinnacle of his career. After years of battling his demons, he was on top of the world—but that world was about to be cruelly torn apart yet again. Just six weeks after his incredible four days at Troon he was diagnosed with leukaemia. With the love and help of his wife and young daughter, he has now beaten a second killer illness and has his eyes set on another crack at Open glory. In Out of the Rough, Barclay describes with humor and honesty the highs and lows of his life on and off the course—as well as in and out of the bar. His story is both terrifying and heartwarming, but first and foremost it is a tale of human courage.
