Review

" A beautiful, deeply moving tribute to the love between father and son and their shared passion for golf. I have never read a more eloquent book about golf as a game where hearts can meet."
--Michael Murphy, author of Golf in the Kingdom
" James Dodson is a gifted writer who clearly understands and loves golf, but more importantly, he understands people and relationships. In the truest sense, final rounds is a moving love story."
--John Feinstein, author of The Majors
" A gripping, loving, and moving story...James Dodson is an excellent writer who understands golf...better than most."
--Ely Callaway, founder and chairman of Callaway Golf
" Final Rounds is about much more than the game itself. It is a journey of discovery for a father and son and for their relationship."
--USA Today
" You will enjoy this powerful and touching story between a father and son, and you will never read a sweeter testimony of that love."
--Ben Crenshaw

From the Inside Flap

James Dodson always felt closest to his father while they were on the links. So it seemed only appropriate when his father learned he had two months to live that they would set off on the golf journey of their dreams to play the most famous courses in the world.
Final Rounds takes us to the historic courses of Royal Lytham and Royal Birkdale, to the windswept undulations of Carnoustie, where Hogan played peerlessly in '53, and the legendary St. Andrews, whose hallowed course reveals something of the eternal secret of the game's mysterious allure over pros and hackers alike.
Throughout their poignant journey, the Dodsons humorously reminisce and reaffirm their love for each other, as the younger Dodson finds out what it means to have his father also be his best friend. Final Rounds is a book never to be forgotten, a book about fathers and sons, long-held secrets, and the lessons a middle-aged man can still learn from his dad about life, love, and family.
Final Rounds is a tribute to a very special game and the fathers and sons who make it so. --> --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
