Descripción:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Nobody knows the game of golf like a caddie, The long-shot dreams, jaw-dropping victories, and soul-crushing defeats--the caddie sees it all. Rarely receiving credit when things go right and frequently taking the blame when things go wrong, caddies are the invisible backbone of the game. Behind every top 10 finish, every Tour championship, and every missed cut, there is a guy pulling clubs for his pro. For decades, these loopers were viewed as second-class citizens, often staying five (or more) to a room in dive motels. It was a job reserved for alcoholics, drug addicts, and high school dropouts. Not anymore. With the advent of higher stakes competitions in the '80s, a skilled and reliable caddie became invaluable to a golfer's success. The lifestyle can now consist of private jets, tournaments in exotic beachside locales and, most importantly, getting one's own bed. Deftly predicting wind conditions, ensuring a superstitious player always has a penny, nickel, and dime in his pocket before hitting the links, reserving unlucky No. 4 balls for Pro-Ams only, knowing how the grass condition and growth pattern on a course affects every shot, pulling the right iron on a million dollar hole--the Tour caddie's knowledge of the game is unsurpassed. Who's the best tipper on tour? Which players could use some anger management classes? Who comes up with the most outrageous excuses for blowing a tournament? What legendary player must have a 1967 quarter in his pocket before he plays? Which top player has had the same caddie since he was in high school over thirty years ago? How much of a cut does the caddie get on a major payday? This nomadic profession attracts a motley collection of Ivy Leaguelawyers, Dead Heads, chiropractors, evangelical Christians, former PGA players, and blood relatives. From the aptly named Reefer Ray and Dave Reptile Lemon to Fred Couple's longtime wingman Joe LaCava and the legendary Linn Strickler, Caddie Confidential is an insider's look at the game from the Tour's top bagmen. Anecdotes, practical tips, superstitions, and infamous stories that have only been told in their inner circle make this the most comprehensive collection of golf tales and advice ever assembled from the unsung heroes of the game.

From the Back Cover: Go inside the ropes with the caddies of the PGA Tour

"Most sports have a coach or a manager--somebody to blame when things go wrong, somebody who can call a time-out and make a speech or fine tune something that can turn things around. Not golf. All the player has is his caddie." --"Alaskan" Dave Patterson

"It feels like I've been in college for the last 23 years, going out with friends, and having a good time every week. If this isn't the best job in the world I don't know what is." --Tom Thorpe

"We were warming up on the driving range on Thursday morning. There weren't many guys out there, but next to me was Gary Player, next to him was Arnold Palmer, and next to him was Jack Nicklaus. Those three guys were hitting balls next to us needling each other. I wasn't paying any attention to my pro, and he probably couldn't blame me. I was hanging on every word coming out of those mouths." --Richard Motacki

"When I started out 24 years ago there were a lot of guys escaping society. Today's caddies are college educated and have special skills. You'll find more college degrees carrying the bags than hitting the balls." --Anthony Wilds

"Not only did we have so many guys to a motel room that we'd go low score for the day to see who gets the bed, but the last guy out of the shower in the morning had to use the bed sheet to dry off." --Eric Schwarz

"Golfers seldom hit a bad shot. Just ask them. It can be dead calm, and the pro could hit his shot a little fat and come up short. If an excuse doesn't come immediately to mind, wait for it. A minute later as you're walking up to the ball you'll feel a little wisp of wind and sure enough he'll say, `I knew it was into the wind.'" --Jeff Kaleita
