Maybe It Should Have Been a Three-Iron
is the funny and poignant story of one man's search for sporting glory. Lawrence Donegan had the desire but lacked the talent to be a professional golfer, so he settled for the next best thing--caddying for Ross Drummond, a little-known pro on the European PGA tour, ranking 438th in the world. With self-deprecating humor, Donegan recounts the days and endless nights he spent on the road with Drummond as they existed on a string of meager tournament checks and chased the elusive "big win" much as Don Quixote and Sancho Panza chased winmills.
"An entertaining, fast-paced read...The book leaves you laughing at the pair's misadventures and startling achievements." --Golf Magazine
"A cornucopia of self-deprecating laughs and a pleasure for those who have golfed or caddied." --Publishers Weekly
"This quixotic adventure is priceless. Anyone who reads chapter 11 and doesn't laugh until he can't see is dead or ought to be." --Dave Kindred author of Around the World in 18 Holes
With self-deprecating humor, Donegan recounts his Quixotic days on the road, caddying for Ross Drummond, a little-known pro on the European PGA Tour.
