This title demonstrates why Rick Reilly is considered by many to be the finest sportswriter in the country. It’s hard to imagine anyone else with the chutzpah to ask the famous, the infamous, and others in between to allow the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED columnist to be their caddy. Amazingly, pros such as John Daly and Jill McGill, as well as millionaire Donald Trump, among others, agree, and Reilly’s stories range from warm to acerbic to hilarious. Grover Gardner’s reading couldn’t be better. He brings Reilly’s written words to life brilliantly, changing pace, changing tone, but never forgetting that Reilly’s ability to turn a phrase is the key to transforming this presumably mundane topic into a book with appeal for everyone, including those with no interest in golf.
