Golf Books #168 (Last Mulligan)

2014

Golf Books #168 (Last Mulligan)A leading money winner on the Nationwide Tour, Dan Tanner is destined for stardom until a reckless lifestyle derails his dreams.

Penniless, broken, and removed from the game for nearly a decade, the downtrodden former pro starts over from scratch after securing a temporary job as a manual laborer at prestigious Bentwood Country Club. Despite the fact he hasn’t touched a stick since the collapse of his professional career, he is determined to qualify for an upcoming club-hosted PGA event.

Past his prime, Dan regards this as his last chance to prove he still has what it takes to compete against the new generation of golfers. Two obstacles stand in his way: He has only weeks to find the game he lost years ago…and Frank, the club owner’s insolent son.

Unscrupulous Resident Pro Frank Daly is not about to let the interloper steal the limelight, or his girlfriend, away from him. Fueled by jealousy and spite, the malcontent is willing to take extraordinary measures to thwart his archival–and he is not above breaking the law in order to achieve his objectives. But wait, there´s more…

Designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman, the world renowned 18 hole championship Trump International Golf Links, Ireland (former Doonbeg Golf Club) spans 1.5 miles of crescent shaped beach and century old sand dunes along Doughmore Bay.

The course was officially opened in 2002 and immediately earned the prestigious title of Golf Digest’s Best New International Course. In 2010 it held the prestigious title of European Golf Resort of the Year presented by the IAGTO (Global Golf Tourism Organization) and, in 2011, was named as one of the top 100 courses in the world by Golf Magazine.

The par-72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back. It plays 6,848 yards from the back tees. Six holes play directly against Doughmore Bay while a total of 16 tees or greens afford some view of the Atlantic beyond. Many of the ambitiously shaped greens are set idyllically inside natural amphitheaters, notably at the regal par 5 opening hole, the three-shot 10th, and the long par 4 15th. But wait, there´s more…

Golf Books #167 (Rory’s Glory)

Dec 23rd
2014

CapturarAfter a fantastic start to his professional golf career with two majors in the bag, child prodigy and golf superstar Rory McIlroy suddenly hit a wall. His successes thinned out and he started to slide down the world rankings.

Rory was making more headlines off the course and on the front pages of the tabloids after a legal dispute with his former management team Horizon; the constant press speculation as to whether he would represent Great Britain or Ireland in the Olympics; and his on-off relationship with Caroline Wozniacki, which led to a New Years Eve engagement in Australia and then the sudden shock split as wedding invitations were being prepared.

Then, after all the traumas, came a double triumph in the summer in 2014 which Rory personally described as “an unbelievable summer and the greatest golf of my life.” Two more majors followed in just four weeks – The British Open and the USPGA – which put Rory in putting distance of becoming only the sixth man in history to win Golf’s Grand Slam as he looks to add the illusive US Masters to his resume. But wait, there’s more…

Nestled in a series of dramatic fairways along the oceanfront that wind through seaside dunes, the course finishes on a rocky peninsula with a spectacular view of the ocean. A Par 72, approximately 7,200 yards long and was designed with Norman’s philosophy to bring into play the “bump and run” shots around the greens. This will give the player the option to play a number of different shots.  But wait, there’s more…
