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

    "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.

    "fun to listen"

    Found this title very entertaining. It take a backstage look into the life of some of professional golfers on and off the course. Highly recommend to those of you sitting in traffic and want a little laugh every so often. You don't need to be a hardcore golfer, just knowing some of these high profile golfers makes the experience much better.

    "Very Interesting Book"

    This was a great book. Rick Reilly did a great job with the narrative and the subject was fascinating - caddying for a variety of personalities and reporting about the lessons, experiences, conversations, comaraderie. I love golf and this was just a pleasure to listen to in the morning and afternoon drives between work and home. I highly recommend this for golf fanatics.

    "Golf and lifestyles with a side order of humour!"

    A really worthwhile way to spend 7 hours and 34 mins ! It is more than just golf it is about personalities and their passions told enthusiastically through the mind of a great sport journalist

    "Not bad"

    I'm not a golfer, only a spectator. It adds more of a personality of these players.

    "Pretty good"

    He had some funny stories but the reader was annoying. I couldn't get over him repeatedly calling the Pro V-1 the "Titleist Pro 6."
