Who's Your Caddy?: Looping for the Great, Near Great, and Reprobates of Golf | [Rick Reilly]

Who's Your Caddy?: Looping for the Great, Near Great, and Reprobates of Golf

Rick Reilly has been a senior sports writer for Sports Illustrated for the past 17 years, and has been named "Sports Writer of The Year" seven times. Now, he pokes his nose into the world of golf. How does he do it? By caddying ("looping") for top players, celebrities, and some really bad run-of-the-mill golfers, Reilly gains insight into the minds of golfers, their winning or less-than-winning ways, and what they actually mutter when they're in the middle of play.

Publisher's Summary

Rick Reilly has been a senior sports writer for Sports Illustrated for the past 17 years, and has been named "Sports Writer of The Year" seven times. Now, he pokes his nose into the world of golf. How does he do it? By caddying ("looping") for top players, celebrities, and some really bad run-of-the-mill golfers, Reilly gains insight into the minds of golfers, their winning or less-than-winning ways, and what they actually mutter when they're in the middle of play. Even though Reilly doesn't know a thing about actual caddying, Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Tom Lehmann, Deepak Chopra, Donald Trump, Casey Martin, and a blind golfer let him fumble through the motions at their sides. The result is a hilarious book of wisdom and humor.

What the Critics Say

"Hilarious misadventures, catty gossip, and downright embarrassing facts are only part of the appeal of this deftly written journal by Sports Illustrated writer Reilly....A truly funny, don't-miss read." (Publishers Weekly)

    I like autumn night times. Curtains drawn. The dim lamp. Chaired with a book. Fireside hours. A warm peace.

    Story
    "Absolutely Loved It"

    A funny, witty, and charming book about an attempt at being a Caddy for some of golf's most famous names, and some not so famous.

    The author lays out an entertaining journey that will make you laugh while at the same time, keep you interested too. Each of the people he caddies for are made into funny characters in a way. By the end of each brief section describing his adventure with a subject, you can't help but laugh out loud at some of the moments between the author and his subjects.

    I consider myself a "tough crowd" when it comes to humor, but Reilly hit the spot on this one. He doesn't suck up to any of the golfers in the book, and gives the reader a good & bad aspect of the person, which reveals a human side to some of them.

    The narrator, Grover Gardner, did excellent as always.

    A very interesting read, and would even be entertaining for those who don't know much about golf. Give it a shot, I don't think you'll walk away saying you hated this book.

    Any additional comments?

    Performance was decent. The Best Reilly book is the Best of Reilly, no pun intended. But this is easily his 2nd best, I've read them all. Whether you're a golfer or not, you'll know many of the people in this book and find their stories intriguing. If you're a golfer, you'll love many of the golf tips in this book.

    "Hilarious"
    Where does Who's Your Caddy? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was one of the best audible books I have listened to. It was well read and I hated any breaks I had to take from listening to it. There were a couple of skips in the audio and I don't know if that was my stereo or the recording itself.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Every part of this book was funny and entertaining. Having a bad day? Listen to Who's Your Caddy.


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    Great imitations of people. He clearly has a good sense of humor and great sense of timing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the narrator was talking about Bob Newhart.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun, fun read. I love golf but I don't think you have to love golf to enjoy the book.

    "Get this Book today!!! Funniest book ever!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Who's Your Caddy? to be better than the print version?

    Yes!! narration was perfect for this book!!! Couldnt have put a better fit..


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh!!! I Loved this book and recommend it to everyone i discuss books with. I read lots and lots of books, but i dont read fiction and mainly read business, This book was a step out of the norm for me, but i actually listed to it twice because someone i told to read it, called me laughing out loud about a part in the book he was at and we got discussing it and laughing so hard i loaded back on my phone and listened again. You will not regret getting this book. (some foul langue in a few small parts) But otherwise GREAT GREAT book...

    "Good book"

    If you like golf, then you'll like this book. Very entertaining stories about the players. One thing that annoyed me, though, was the lack of editing of the recording. The narrator kept calling the Titleist Pro-V1 the Pro-Six, for the Roman number 6, VI. He obviously doesn't golf and no one reviewed the recording. You may say that it's petty to say that but it annoyed me to no end and expected more from the book. Otherwise, Rick does a good job of making fun of himself and the players.
