Publisher Comments:

The funniest and most popular sportswriter in America abandons his desk at Sports Illustrated to caddy for some of the worlds most famous golfers, and some celebrity duffers, recounting it all in this hilarious and revealing look at the world of golf.

Who knows a golfer best? Whos with them every minute of every round, hears their muttering, knows whether they cheat? Their caddies, of course. So sportswriter Rick Reilly figured that he could learn a lot about the players and their games by caddying, even though he had absolutely no idea how to do it. Amazingly, some of the best golfers in the worldincluding Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Tom Lehman, John Daly, Casey

Martin, and Jill McGillagreed to let Reilly carry their bags at actual PGA and LPGA Tour events. To round out his portrait of the golfing life, Reilly also caddied at the Masters, persuaded Deepak Chopra and Donald Trump to use him as a caddy, accompanied high-rolling golf hustlers in Las Vegas around the course, and carried the bag for a blind golfer.

In Whos Your Caddy?, Reilly chronicles his experiences in the same inimitable style that makes his back-page column for Sports Illustrated a must-read for more than twenty million people every week. From his laugh-out-loud portrait of Deepak Chopra decomposing on the green, to his portraits of good ol boys who bet $100,000 a round, to his hilarious descriptions of his own ineptitude as a caddy, to his insights into what

makes the greats of golf so great, Reilly combines a wicked wit with an experts eye in a most original and entertaining look at golf.

Whos Your Caddy? is the next best thing to a great round of golf. It is sure to delight low-handicappers, high-handicappers, and everyone in between.

Review:

"...And fact remains, I really don't give two hoots about golf. But any writer who is able to describe their passion and integrate it smoothly, intelligently, and with wit is doing right by my standards. Reilly has a great self-deprecating humor and a smart, quick writing style. His are the sort of blithe observations that journalists like Susan Orlean or Ian Frasier pass in one of their profiles. I have been won over by the? er? goofy charm of Rick Reilly." Georgie Lewis, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)
