My dad was a small town barber for 50+ years. He worked 10+ hour days, six days a week. (If there was ever a rare moment of time between haircuts, you could catch him reading in the barber chair. Or napping.) When he had a captive audience, he would have conversations about all of the pre-requisites: politics, religion, and sports. And if the topic turned to golf, he would tell you about his plan to put in a 6-hole course in the field behind our house.
My dad did not have time to play a round of golf, much less build a course.
He would have loved this book.
The Secret of Golf: The Story of Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus by Joe Posnanski will be released on June 9, 2015. Just in time for Father’s Day.
