Just when we need some magic in our lives, bestselling author James Patterson and Peter de Jonge bring us a stirring tale of life, love, and the power of miracles. 

Travis McKinley is an ordinary man living an ordinary life. He has a job he despises, a marriage that’s lost its passion, children that he feels disconnected from, and at age fifty, a sense that he’s accomplished nothing in life. But on Christmas Day, he goes out to play a round of golf and for the first time, he finds himself in the “zone.” He sees the putting line that has eluded him for years. Always a fairly good golfer, he finds himself playing like a pro and is so caught up in his excitement that he continues to play, sinking putt after putt, and misses Christmas dinner with his wife and family. It’s too much for his already troubled marriage.

His family collapses, but Travis is too busy living his dream to notice. His amazing new golf skills catapult him into the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach, where he advances to the final round with two of his heroes, Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd. And with his wife, children, and a live television audience watching, a miracle takes place on the 17th green that will change Travis, and his family, forever.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fast-moving golf fantasy…Patterson and de Jonge succeed admirably in creating a winning character who is enough of a child to believe his dreams and is also mature enough to offer some gently humorous reflections on our national obsession with an engaging sport.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “There are many among us who see golf as a healer of the soul, and Miracle on the 17th Green is a wonderful example of how uplifting that belief can be.”

    John Feinstein, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Patterson and coauthor de Jonge add a new twist by melding a golf story onto a sentimental Christmas fable. The resulting plot is sort of Rocky Does the Senior Tour with just a hint of It’s a Wonderful Life.”

    Booklist

  • “This is a hopeful little gem, and you don’t even have to like golf to enjoy it.”

    Bookreporter

  • “Entertaining.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Miracle on the 17th Green is…where miracles can happen to those who learn to dream again.”

    Calgary Sun

  • “Even if you don’t know a birdie from a putter you can still enjoy this sweet tale of a middle-aged golfer’s extraordinary blossoming.”

    Evening Post (Wellington)
