At 47, David Wood sold everything he owned and set out to fulfill every golfer's dream: For one year, he traveled the world (covering 60,000 miles and every continent except Antarctica) by plane, boat, train, motorcycle, and rickshaw, to play the game he loves in the most exotic locales, including the world's highest, driest, hottest, coldest, and most remote golf courses. And he lived to tell the tale.

Along the way, he met a bevy of fascinating characters, including surly cabbies, taxi drivers with a death wish, welcoming golf-course managers, threatening kangaroos, and golf pros out for a quick game. David faced dire situations, such as bouts of food poisoning in India and Egypt, altitude sickness in Argentina, getting booted out of the Ukraine by armed guards, and muddling about with limited language skills. But through it all, he maintained a sense of humor and, of course, his passion for golf, which he played every chance he got. Download and start listening now!

    " I really liked the idea of this book, but the writing the forced humor were not executed very well. Overall though, I enjoyed it. Had Bill Bryson wrote this, it would be in my top 5 for sure! "
