Overview

Bobby Jones always hoped that someday an amateur would win the Masters. In this novel, bestselling author John Coyne-The Caddie Who Knew Ben Hogan and The Caddie Who Played With Hickory-tells the story of Tim Alexander, an amateur from the public links courses in Southern Illinois, who qualifies for the Masters and has a chance to fulfill Jones' dream.

In The Caddie Who Won The Masters, Coyne blends his skill at the supernatural (he's a bestselling author of novels of the occult) with his vast knowledge of golf and its history. The riveting result: a Field of Dreams-like tale that brings the greatest of golf's ghosts and legends back to Augusta for one more brilliant game.

The novel opens, as all Masters stories must, at Amen Corner, that famed cluster of holes, when Tim Alexander meets one of Augusta's most famous members, a mysterious stranger who changes the rules of golf and reality-and offers to save Tim's wife if Tim will set him free by winning the tournament.

This novel is a story of what happens when an amateur like Tim Alexander battles his own age, the history and slick greens of Augusta National, and the PGA's best players, from Tiger Woods to the young guns, in a tournament where winning means more than a green jacket to Tim-it means saving the life of his wife.

Any golfer who has had Augusta fantasies will be fascinated to spend a week in Georgia, immersed in the traditions, and the suspense, of the Masters, as time is turned back and an amateur, summoning the ghosts of Augusta, plays the greatest tournament of his life.
