Mike Veron has done it again. This is his third golf novel and each one is better than the one before. Bobby Reeves is a professional golfer at the bottom of the heap. He meets up with a very unusual man, Stewart Jones, who, agrees to caddie for him, takes him under his wing and changes his life. In the process Bobby learns a lot about himself, his game and life in general. A great read which will entertain as well as enlighten everyone. No need to be a golfer to enjoy this book!!!
