9780786886470: Tin Cup Dreams: A Long Shot Makes It on the PGA Tour

Now available in paperback, Tin Cup Dreams is the remarkable odyssey of self-taught golfer Esteban Toledo, a former boxer who overcame poverty and the wrong side of the tracks to make it through Q School and a make-or-break season on the PGA Tour. With uncommon grit and determination, Toledo finally triumphs after a 12 year quest that took him to the depths of despair.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael D'Antonio gives a rare behind-the-scenes look at the PGA Tour while keeping readers on the edge of their seats with his chronicle of Toledo's struggles. Traditionally, golf was a dreamer's path to glory. Tin Cup Dreams shows that it still is.

About the Author:

Michael D'Antonio shared the Pulitzer Prize in journalism as part of a Newsday reporting team. He has written three acclaimed non-fiction books and countless articles for GOLF Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, Elle, Redbook, McCall's, and The LA Times Magazine. He is a lifelong golfer whose first paying job was as a caddie at a summer resort in New Hampshire. D'Antonio lives with his family in New York State.

From Publishers Weekly:

The premise is simple and not unfamiliar: a writer attends the PGA's qualifying tournament, or Q. School, and latches on to one of the winners, whom he then follows around for a season on the tour. The resulting chronicle would have been a disaster had the player, like so many Q. School graduates, not made the cut on the tour; D'Antonio lucked out in finding Esteban Toledo, a self-taught Mexican grinder who just wants to earn enough to keep his Tour card for another year and for whom a Tour victory would represent not fame and fortune but the final step away from his dirt-poor origins in Mexicali, where his family "never had money for [Christmas] presents or a tree, or a feast." Although D'Antonio's recounting of round after round of golf grows a bit tiresome, you can't help but pull for Toledo. He overestimates his own mistakes. He practices with singular will. He has to learn to trust his well-meaning caddy. And he frequently doubts his own self-worth, especially when confronted by the racism that clearly pervades Tour events--on several occasions, Toledo is denied access to player areas because he's Mexican. On top of Toledo's quest, readers also get a fascinating look at the PGA not shown on TV, plus dozens of interesting tidbits and anecdotes from golf history. Overall, D'Antonio comes in at one under.
