Miracle on the 17th Green | [James Patterson, Peter de Jonge]

Miracle on the 17th Green

Travis McKinley is an ordinary man living an ordinary life - he has a job that he despises, a marriage that has lost its passion, children from whom he feels disconnected, and at age 50, a sense that he has accomplished nothing of consequence with his life. But on Christmas Day, he goes out to play a round of golf, and for the first time, he finds himself in the "zone". He sees the putting line that has eluded him for years.

Publisher's Summary

Just when we need some magic in our lives, best-selling author James Patterson and Peter de Jonge bring us a stirring tale of life, love, and the power of miracles.

Travis McKinley is an ordinary man living an ordinary life - he has a job that he despises, a marriage that has lost its passion, children from whom he feels disconnected, and at age 50, a sense that he has accomplished nothing of consequence with his life. But on Christmas Day, he goes out to play a round of golf, and for the first time, he finds himself in the "zone". He sees the putting line that has eluded him for years. Always a fairly good golfer, he finds himself playing like a pro and is so caught up in his excitement that he continues to play, sinking putt after putt, missing Christmas dinner with his wife and family. It is too much for his already troubled marriage.

His family collapes - but Travis is soon too busy living his dream to notice. His amazing new golf skills catapult him into the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach, where he advances to the final round with two of his heroes, Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd. And with his wife, children, and a live television audience watching, a miracle takes place on the 17th green that will change Travis, and his family, forever.

What the Critics Say

"Patterson...and de Jonge succeed admirably in creating a winning character who is enough of a child to believe his dreams and is also mature enough to offer some gently humorous reflections on our national obsession with an engaging sport." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Sweet story. Non-golfers will like this too."
    What made the experience of listening to Miracle on the 17th Green the most enjoyable?

    It was well written, well read and held my interest for the length of the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Miracle on the 17th Green?

    It was interesting to note that there are several times you're on the 17th green and something spectacular happens, but it isn't the miracle (yet).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to this in one day, but over two sessions. It's short enough to do in one sitting.
