Publisher's Summary

An inspiring story of hope, redemption, and trying to hit the ball straight.
A year ago Travis McKinley, an unknown golfing amateur, shocked the world by winning the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach. Now he's famous, he makes his living playing the game he loves, and everything should be perfect. Still Travis can't shake the feeling that he's a fraud, an imposter who doesn't deserve his success - and after a series of disappointments and, to be honest, personal screwups, he might just prove himself right.
A shot at redemption arrives in an unexpected form: a teenage outcast with troubles of his own - and a natural golf swing. As this unlikely duo sets out to achieve the impossible on the world's most revered golf course, Travis is about to learn that sometimes the greatest miracles of all take place when no one is watching.

Cute Story, Limited Golfing Knowledge

Any additional comments?

I'm a little sappy. So I enjoy a cute story. I love golf, so a cute story about golf is even better. From the standpoint of a cute story, I enjoyed the book overall. And the reader did a great job which is always huge. However, there were nagging details that caused me to not enjoy the book as much as I otherwise would. The way the school bullying was described was very unrealistic. Things about the pro game were unrealistic or inaccurate. But, the biggest thing was Patterson doesn't know how to keep score. If you hit a drive, lose your second shot, take a drop and hit the next shot on the green, YOU ARE PUTTING FOR A FIVE NOT A FOUR!
