Publisher's Summary

Who knows a golfer best? Who's with them every minute of every round, hears their muttering, knows whether they cheat? Their caddies, of course. So sportswriter Rick Reilly figured that he could learn a lot about the players and their games by caddying, even though he had absolutely no idea how to do it. Amazingly, some of the best golfers in the world - including Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Tom Lehman, John Daly, Casey Martin, and Jill McGill - agreed to let Reilly carry their bags at actual PGA and LPGA Tour events. To round out his portrait of the golfing life, Reilly also caddied at the Masters, persuaded Deepak Chopra and Donald Trump to use him as a caddy, accompanied high-rolling golf hustlers in Las Vegas around the course, and carried the bag for a blind golfer. In Who's Your Caddy? Reilly chronicles his experiences in the same inimitable style that makes his back-page column for Sports Illustrated a must-read for more than twenty million people every week. From his laugh-out-loud portrait of Deepak Chopra decomposing on the green, to his portraits of good ol' boys who bet $100,000 a round, to his hilarious descriptions of his own ineptitude as a caddy, to his insights into what makes the greats of golf so great, Reilly combines a wicked wit with an expert's eye in a most original and entertaining look at golf.
Who's Your Caddy? is the next best thing to a great round of golf. It is sure to delight low-handicappers, high-handicappers, and everyone in between.

Critic Reviews

"A truly funny, don't-miss read." (Publishers Weekly)
"This title demonstrates why Rick Reilly is considered by many to be the finest sportswriter in the country....Reilly's stories range from warm to acerbic to hilarious. Grover Gardner's reading couldn't be better. He brings Reilly's written words to life brilliantly....A book with appeal for everyone, including those with no interest in golf."(AudioFile)

HILLARIOUS!!

I have listened to this download three times since downloading it just ten days ago! It's laugh out loud funny until the last spoken word, and the narrator is a joy to listen to. I wish it were unabridged (come'on Audible!), but that's just a minor quibble. If you love golf and the characters who play it, you'll love Who's Your Caddy?

Priceless, but unfortunately X-rated

Side splittingly funny, with wonderfully entertaining caricatures of the players,the other caddies, and himself. The only drawback is that I wish I could give it to my 16 year old golfing-daughter to read, but it is unfortunately X-rated -- not detractingly vulgar as an adult read, but clearly not for kids.
