Miracle on the 17th Green Publisher's Summary

Miracles happen, but only if you believe. 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.

    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.

    Though nobody has ever identified a single secret - no universally accepted truth - to the sport, every real player searches for one. Travis McKinley is one such seeker. A former professional golfer who feels like he's an amateur at the rest of life, he makes a pilgrimage to the mythical greens at St. Andrews. On the course where golf was born, every link, hole, fairway - even the gorse - feels like sacred ground. Ground that can help an ordinary player, an ordinary man, achieve a higher plane.
