A new edition of a classic novel follows the story of Travis McKinley, whose lackluster family life takes a turn for the better after his golf game dramatically improves and he experiences a miracle on the 17th green during the Senior PGA Open at Pebble Beach. By the authors of Beach Road. *Author: Patterson, James/ De Jonge, Peter *Publication Date: 2010/05/10 *Number of Pages: 198 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 5.75 *Height: 8.50
From the Publisher:
Travis McKinley's life has drifted sideways. His job, his marriage, even his children all feel disconnected and distant. Has he really accomplished nothing of consequence in his life? One Christmas Day, Travis plays a round of golf and finds himself for the first time in the zone--playing like a pro. In astonishingly short order, Travis is catapulted into the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach, where he advances to the final round. And while his wife, his children, and a live television audience watch, a miracle takes place that changes Travis, and his family, forever.
Annotation:
Golfers know that scoring a double eagle (knocking in your second shot on a par 5) is even rarer than a hole-in-one, and James Patterson's first foray into the niche of golf fiction illustrates this bit of trivia by documenting the struggles of an amateur golfer who is trying to make good on his own improbable second shot at personal glory. Travis McKinley has built a comfortable life for himself and his family, but his relative abundance has come at the expense of his passion and ambition. On Christmas Day, Travis is indulging himself in one of the few joys left in his life, a round of golf, when he suddenly finds himself draining putts from all over the green. Unwilling to surrender his newfound serendipity, he plays straight through his family's annual Christmas dinner, much to his wife's displeasure. Amazingly, Travis maintains his magical aptitude on the links, but as he attempts to ascend into the ranks of the Senior PGA, his status at work and at home plummets, until he must decide if Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd are more important than his wife and kids.
Author Bio
James Patterson
James Patterson grew up in Newburgh, New York, 50 miles north of New York City. Valedictorian of his class at the Christian Brothers school, St. Patrick's, in 1965, Patterson graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in English. He first entertained the idea of becoming a writer in 1971 when he worked as a college student in a mental institution, a job that afforded him abundant time to read. He came up with the idea for his first novel during that time, and five years later, after 26 rejection slips, his first effort, "The Thomas Berryman Number", appeared in bookstores. Since that time, Patterson has written numerous best-selling thrillers featuring the sensitive, modern-day hero Alex Cross, including "Kiss the Girls", which was made into a major motion picture starring Morgan Freeman.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"Christmas shoppers take note: vigorous, straightforward prose and solid characterization put this second golf fable of the season in a far different league from the mystical, romantic 'The Legend of Tommy Morris'." 09/16/1996
