9780060933524: A Mulligan for Bobby Jobe: A Novel

Bobby Jobe is a pro golfer whose swing is better than his attitude. When he bogies the last four holes and blows his lead in a major tournament -- again -- he berates his caddy, Henry "Greyhound" Mote. Jobe loses both Greyhound, who walks off the course, and the game. And before the day is out, he'll lose his eyesight to a lightning strike and his future in golf -- unless he can do what no one has ever done blind: make a comeback. Bob Cullen's funny and wise story, full of PGA lore, perfectly captures the mysterious and irresistible nature of the game of golf, not to mention, love, friendship, and life.

About the Author:

Bob Cullen is a former international correspondent for Newsweek and the author of four acclaimed thrillers, including the New York Times Notable Book of the Year Soviet Sources. More recently, he has written Why Golf?: The Mystery of the Game Revisited and coauthored a bestselling series of books about the mental side of the game, starting with Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect. He lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Failing to make the determining shot in a championship, PGA golfer Bobby Jobe takes his fury out on his caddy, Henry Mote, who, having had enough of this behavior, walks off the course. But when a lightning strike incinerates Bobby's eyes, Henry helps a physical therapist restore the pro's game and perspective. Bob Cullen cultivates a deliberate Georgia drawl in creating the first-person narration of Henry Mote. At first, the careful enunciation of each syllable sounds more contrived than natural, but the listener soon grows accustomed to the rhythm, relaxing into the flow of the story.
