The Pro is both a family and a golf memoir, as well as an inside look at what it takes to teach the Tigers of the world. It describes how Butch and his brothers, who are also teachers, transfer their father's unique wit, wisdom, and philosophy to the next generation of golfers. Sometimes their advice relates to the game, sometimes they simply offer words of encouragement and motivation, sometimes they make pointed criticisms intended to shock their students into focus, and sometimes they try to impart simple advice about "walking around through life". The Harmon brothers are teachers who share a special quality: All of their lessons are passed down from their father.
This is a portrait of one extraordinary family and the game that will carry their legacy for years to come.

A story well written
What did you love best about The Pro?
Butch is as great an author as he is a golf coach
What did you like best about this story?
The entire package
What does Joseph Buttler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Joseph is born to narrate stories, he brings this story into real time space by expressing every emotion as if he is an extension of the the Harmon family experience.
Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?
This book is so fully packed with life that even non-golfers would enjoy it save for golf lingo that one can learn as s/he goes along.
Any additional comments?
I think Butch has a gift for writing and should look for more opportunities to do so; if only for the ever growing golf enthusiasts - but I believe his gift transcends golf courses.
