From the Publisher:
At twenty-six, Brian Schwan is washed up. Four years hacking away on third-rate golf courses across the South have produced a grand total of $19,000 in earnings, zero wins, and a string of spectacular tournament flame-outs. He's just shot a horrendous opening round, his wife wants him to come home and start a family, and even his father, who dreamed of seeing his son a star golfer, seems to have given up on his game. Critically acclaimed, Spikes is a sharply observed novel about the obscurity of our motivations, our capacity for self-delusion, and the surprising, unexpected possibilities for grace.A intelligent first novel set on the minor league golf circuit follows a has-been twentysomething golfer on a last-ditch tour through the South. 30,000 first printing.
This humorous golf novel is about a young pro named Brian whose wife wants him to give up golf, become an accountant, and get her pregnant.


Kirkus Reviews
"Comic, allegorical first novel....[A] funny, winning portrait of the artist as a frustrated, helpless, but not completely hopeless young duffer." 12/15/2000
