John Coyne “The Caddie Who Played With Hickory”
June 20th, 2008
Bigger than Babe Ruth, bigger than Jack Dempsey, legendary Walter Hagen was America?s first touring golf professional. Novelist John Coyne places Hagen at a Midwest country club in 1946, in what may be his last major golf match.
A farm boy named Tommy O’Shea, who’s a top caddie at the club, gets a once in a lifetime chance to challenge Hagen – if he can master the use of old-style hickory golf clubs, and if he can get past another caddie, the enigmatic Harrison Cornell, who apparently has a score to settle with Hagen. Coyne’s book is called “The Caddie Who Played With Hickory.”
