Other than some crazy golf or a few goes at the driving range, I know nothing about golf whatsoever, so a lot of the golfing jargon is foreign to me. Luckily this book is very short, enjoyable and heart-warming but it just feels like with this kind of book there isn't enough tragedy to make the feel-good parts of seem worthwhile, as when reading this it just came across as a guy who was ok at golf, had a few problems at home then made it big in the pro tournaments. The end. It was a nice story with some likeable characters and it did keep me interested throughout (although I did skim-read most of the golf-talking bits), so much so that I finished it in just an hour and a half.
If you're after a happy and fast-paced short story, with hardly any depth, than this is a fairly decent read, but is very forgettable and not one that I'm likely to read again.

One of my favourite writers. Can do no wrong as far as I am concerned. Different from his usual works but enjoyable nevertheless.Published 21 months ago by Colin
