Publisher's Summary

Celebrated for both his novels and memoirs, Don J. Snyder is also the recipient of a James Michener Fellowship. A story of love and dedication, Walking with Jack chronicles Snyder’s dream to caddie for his son Jack's pro golf tour debut. At nearly 60, Snyder left Maine for Scotland - the birthplace of golf - where he learned the game and earned his spot as a full-time caddie. His journey would finally coincide with Jack’s own struggles in one of the PGA’s toughest qualifying events.

What made the experience of listening to Walking with Jack the most enjoyable?

The story, a father wanting the best for his son, doing what he has to, too help.

Have you listened to any of Graham Rowat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I loved his voice. Made the Scotland parts more to form. Brought you into the story.

Any additional comments?

I bought this book cause I thought it was about the golfer Jack Nicklas son being a caddie for his dad. I was wrong. SO GLAD.i kept listening. Listening to it 2x so far.

Chasing Your Dream

An interesting account of the relationship between a father and son as they aspire to qualify for the professional golf tour. It's about life sometimes getting in the way, sometimes clarifying the way, but ultimately relationships and resilience. I enjoyed it more because my 16 year old son is a low handicap golfer with his own dream. If golf isn't your thing, the last third of the book, a blow by blow account of competitive rounds of golf, may be a bit tedious. Overall, I connected with a father wanting more than anything that his son could one day reach his goal. It's was a great listen.
