Publisher's Summary

Rick Reilly has been a senior sports writer for Sports Illustrated for the past 17 years, and has been named "Sports Writer of The Year" seven times. Now, he pokes his nose into the world of golf. How does he do it? By caddying ("looping") for top players, celebrities, and some really bad run-of-the-mill golfers, Reilly gains insight into the minds of golfers, their winning or less-than-winning ways, and what they actually mutter when they're in the middle of play. Even though Reilly doesn't know a thing about actual caddying, Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Tom Lehmann, Deepak Chopra, Donald Trump, Casey Martin, and a blind golfer let him fumble through the motions at their sides. The result is a hilarious book of wisdom and humor.

What the Critics Say

"Hilarious misadventures, catty gossip, and downright embarrassing facts are only part of the appeal of this deftly written journal by Sports Illustrated writer Reilly....A truly funny, don't-miss read." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Makes you laugh out loud on your own"

    The most amusing golf book I have ever listened to. I have now listened to this twice whilst driving (a car!) and the journey flies by. The stories are written with great observation and reveal unexpected sides to the famous. If you like to be entertained and love golf this is a must.............. be ready to laugh out loud even when you are on your own!

    "So much more than golf!!!!!"

    It was interesting, funny and sad all at the same time. It sounds like a true story teller telling his number one story...

    I realy enjoyed it, I look forward to listening to some of his other books.

    "Enjoyable and Funny"

    I always wanted to see what a caddies life is like, and even though the book was fun to listen to, the reader only gets a 1 or 2 day perspective about caddying for about 6 different golfers (professional and amateur) in not very serious competitions. Its mostly about the hazing he gets from the players and the other full time caddies.



    I recommend this if you want a light and funny story, but not if you are looking to see behind the locker room doors at the life of a caddy (cant wait until Steve Williams writes his book)

    "Absolutely Friggin' Hilarious!!!"

    Rick Reilly does an awesome job of telling stories not just about himself, but the players (and their caddies) he works for. He pays respect when it is merited (w/ Jack Nicklaus, Tom Lehman, and the blind golfer), has fun when he is supposed to (w/ John Daly), and pokes fun when it is deserved (w/ Tommy Aaron, LPGA golfer). Rick does an admirable job with Casey Martin too, doing a little investigative journalism, and showing both sides of the ADA golf cart law suit. He has a wit that makes this golf book interesting and entertaining. I was laughing out loud! I'm going looking for more Rick Reilly material next chance I get.

    "Hilarious"

    One of the funniest things I've listened to all year. (2005) Listening to the Trump chapter alone is worth the price of entry. He's a witty and intelligent writer and very well read. Put a smile on your face and listen to this book.

    "Most entertaining golf book ever!"

    If there is one golf book you have to listen to, this is it! Recently on a trip from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which is a 7 hours round trip by car, this book kept me company and made a normally boring trip into a relax and entertaining one. I especially love the chapter with Deepak Chopra, that alone is worth the price of the book. 5 STARS!!!

    "Loved It!"

    I'm an avid golfer and found both the description of the players I knew and the insight into them personally both entertaining and often throught provoking. I laughed a lot and learned a lot. This book gave me a new appreciation of this wonderful yet frustrating game. Well worth the time and money.

    "Entertaining for all"

    A very humorous look at the world of an otherwise boring sport. He puts a personality to the guys strolling down the fairway without making it sound like I am listening to a round of golf on the radio. Well-written and entertaining for even the casual sports fan. The reading is excellent. The narrator has a great voice and great inflection. A pleasant break from the usual novel I regularly purchase.

    "Who's Youre Caddy"

    This is the most humorous book I have listened to in years. I have listened to it at least 5 times. The narator is perfect for this recording. Even if you don't understand or like golf you will find this book entertaining!

    "I miss golf."

    I'm biased. I swear I used to hang with these guts at the clubhouse (shack) of the 9-hole course where I learned to play in my teens. Golf can be great fun if you don't take it too seriously.

    "Awesome book, great narrator too!"

    If you want to walk along inside the ropes with a golfer and hear what really goes on, listen to this book. Lol several times.
