From the Publisher:
Beyond golf's polished surface there lies a world not often seen by the average fan. The caddy sees everything - the ambition, the strategy, the rivalries, the jealousies - that occurs behind the scenes. Award-winning John Feinstein, America's favourite sportswriter, got one of golf's legendary caddies to reveal the secrets behind the most popular sport of our time. Bruce Edwards was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease in January 2003, a progressive disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, but he dominated coverage of the 2003 US Open. This is a position not usually bestowed on a caddy, but Edwards was no ordinary caddy. In 1973, after forgoing college, Edwards walked on the course behind a young Tom Watson and never looked back. Watson would go on to win eight major titles with Bruce Edwards by his side. Edwards continued to do the job he had dedicated more than half his life to right up to his death in April 2004, aged 49. This is a moving, dramatic and thoughtful book about a life devoted to sports.
Annotation:
In this poignant sports biography, famed journalist John Feinstein chronicles the 30-year collaboration between PGA golfer Tom Watson and caddy Bruce Edwards, who enjoyed a winning combination both on and off the course--until Bruce Edwards was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Feinstein looks back on their amazing career and the bond between the two men, as well as on how they and their friends and family responded to Edwards's diagnosis. He also chronicles the 2003 tour, and reflects on how the game of golf has changed since Edwards and Watson first teamed up in 1973. (Bruce Edwards passed away in April 2004, just prior to the publication of CADDY FOR LIFE.)
