Carl Hiaasen is a writer with 14 novels to his credit and writes for the Miami Herald. With support from his publisher, family and friends, he decided to pick golf up again after not playing since his teenage years. The journey is tracked in the book between chapters and diary entries dated by days since he started playing golf again. The goal of the book and Carl’s golf game is the member guest tournament at Carl’s local course.

I let another bar play before setting up for another hit.
