Who's Your Caddy?: Looping for the Great, Near Great, and Reprobates of Golf Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

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? Who's 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 world — including Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Tom Lehman, John Daly, Casey Martin, and Jill McGill — agreed 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 expert's 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:

“You might not think the story of a man carrying Tommy Aaron's golf bag for 18 holes could make you laugh out loud, but you'd be wrong. Who's Your Caddy? is funny enough to coax a chuckle out of Vijay Singh. A great way to read about the game — and its people, too.” Charlotte Observer

Review:

“Reilly could write about lawn bowling and make it funny, informative, and entertaining. You never know what the next page is going to bring.” Los Angeles Times

Review:

“Goes down faster than a cool Bud on a 100-degree day.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram

In the same inimitable style that makes his back-page column for Sports Illustrated a must-read for more than fifteen million people every week, Reilly combines a wicked wit with an expert's eye in the most original and entertaining look at golf ever.
