Reviews

"David is a very entertaining writer - with a wit and a way of bringing people and stories to life that had me laughing out loud. I look forward to visiting some of the courses he played - hopefully without having to sell everything like he had to do!" - Bobby Clampett, television golf analyst, golf professional, and author of "The Impact Zone""David Wood's story joyously captures the maddening yet addictive allure of golf as he takes us on a journey every golfer would envy." -Rick Lipsey, golf writer at Sports Illustrated and author of "Golfing on the Roof of the World" "David Wood will be a hero to many.

This is a book that proves golf has far more to offer than most of us take from it - and inspires us to broaden our relationship with the game."--Duncan Lennard, author of "Extreme Golf" and "112 Miles to the Pin" "David Wood has written an inspiring, attention-holding and humorous golfing travelogue.

Paramount was his 'eleventh club'--a razor-sharp sense of humor that enabled him to cope with the ebb and flow of world travel.
