The Green
By

Rating
The Ryder Cup.
A biennial tournament considered the premier event in the golfing world, pitting the twelve best players in the United States against the twelve best of Europe in a contest so pressure-filled it can paralyze even the most battle-scarred tour veterans.
United States captain Alan Bellamy, with one precious slot unfilled and none of the remaining top tour players willing to sign on against a clearly superior European squad, makes a desperate decision in his attempt to preserve America's golfing honor: he selects as his twelfth man one Eddie Caminetti, a low-life, two-bit hustler from a municipal course in South Florida.
The most prestigious tournament in golf will never be the same. As the unforeseen consequences of Caminetti's participation on the Ryder team unfold riotously, Troon McAllister takes us into the minds and souls of elite professional athletes and poses a question as old as golf itself: Why would God create a game even He can't play?

Reviews

Praise for The Green "[A] hilarious and loving look at golf generally and the Ryder Cup in particular...Happily for his fans, Caminetti will return in The Foursome, in which golf meets Deliverance." --USA Today "A minor miracle of fiction...Completely convincing, wise, funny, The Green stands on its own not just as outstanding golf fiction but as fiction period." --Steven Pressfield, author of The Legend of Bagger Vance "A rollicking tale full of raucously rococo characters...You think pool sharks are the consummate hustlers? Wait until you meet Eddie Caminetti." --San Bernardino Sun "If you think it's just about golf, you're missing half the fun. The richly drawn characters populating The Green are stand-ins for all of us, and the lessons to be learned beneath all of the humor and intrigue will stay with you long after the final page." --Stewart Cink, PGA Professional "Laced with colorful locker-room dialogue and golf aphorisms...this romp is par for the course, an insider's down-and-dirty view of golf competition stroke by stroke." --San Antonio Express-News
