A Journey Through the Rough of Life,
This review is from: Playing Through: A Year of Life and Links Along the Scottish Coast (Hardcover)
This is not just book about golf more about the triumphs and disasters of the journey from boyhood to manhood.
The author starts his journey in St Andrews where he is studying for an MA. I suspect that he did most of his studying on the golf course and in the bars of St Andrews though as he is soon asked to leave.
Later having married, had children, and lost his favourite golfing partner his father, he returns to Scotland to spend a year writing and playing golf. The friends that he makes along the way, especially the mercurial Jack, all facinate in their own way.
Anyone who has a true golfing soul and appreciates the view from the 7th at Gullane 1 will enjoy this, if you are after an instruction book on golf, forget it.
