(From the publisher):
In The Caddie Who Played with Hickory, bestselling author John Coyne draws on his knowledge and passion for golf, and his fascination with Hall of Famer Walter Hagen — bon vivant U.S. and British Open champion, first American touring professional golfer and the greatest match-play golfer who has ever lived — to write a powerful and taut tale about how the game reflects and can change one’s life.
The book is filled with dazzling descriptions of shot-by-shot drama laced with stories from the golden age of the sport, The Caddie Who Played with Hickory brings to life a bygone era of sport and an America that seemingly only exists now in stories from long ago.
This evocative novel is for readers who love a dramatic story that blends fact with fiction, written by a novelist who loves language as much as he loves the game of golf.
