Book Description:

Quirky Golf Fiction

An offbeat tale with unexpected twists and turns

Ben Richards lives for the weekend when he can have fun with his eccentric friends at the golf course affectionately nicknamed Hackin' Oaks. The hapless hacker is miraculously transformed into a PGA-caliber golfer when struck on the head by a wayward ball. This incident changes the direction of his life, both on and off the course.

Now living every golf addict's fantasy as a pro, Ben is befriended by both the top-ranked player in the world and the most powerful man in the industry. He feels invincible. Then tragedy strikes.

Forced to adapt to new challenges, he realizes there's more to life than just golf. By adopting an alternative lifestyle that few would choose, Ben learns the true value of friendship and community before resuming his passionate affair with the grand old game.

The Inspiration Behind The Right Side of the Fairway:

This book was written in homage to the greatest game of all. I salute all dedicated golfers, past and present--professionals, hackers, and those with skills somewhere in between.

Although the central theme revolves around golf, the book is also about eccentric personalities, finding love when it's least expected, and dealing with life-changing challenges. I hope that avid golfers and non-golfers alike will find the story to be interesting, unpredictable, and entertaining.
