    I really enjoyed this book! Read it as part of Book Riot's Read Harder challenge for a book about sports. I'm not a golfer but the author keeps the story interesting, and has developed the characters to give you a sense of knowing them without sharing too much. It stayed relative the whole way through, unlike other historical novels that get sidetracked on details. Highly recommend for all Canadians, any golfers, and lovers of sport history.
