Unwritten in the annals of the sporting world is the story of a man with unlimited potential who was denied his rightful place in the lore of golf....

It is a story that might never have been told had Charley Hunter not accepted a summer internship at Butler & Yates, a prestigious Atlanta law firm.

Bobby Jones, the legendary amateur golfer, had once been a partner at the firm and his old legal files had been severely neglected over the years. The task of cataloging those files soon presents Charley with the remnants of a man’s life, as he pieces together a tale that spans decades.

Who is this mysterious golfer with a golden swing, whose life and career Jones followed with such interest? An accused felon fleeing from the law? Or a man falsely accused, whose only crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time? And why would one of the greatest athletes of all time risk his spotless reputation to help a man he met only once?

Charley quickly learns that there is a compelling tale buried within the files of Bobby Jones. Charley uncovers stories of unfulfilled promise, fleeting justice, near captures, and unyielding friendship—and to what end? Charley hopes to find the truth. But what he ultimately finds will change his life and understanding of life forever.

    " This was a really fun, quick read, and it sparked my interest in other golf literature. Veron does a nice job of mixing fact and fiction - the story is very believable and entertaining. "

    " I had greater expectations given the 'John Grisham meets golf' touting, but I didn't think the storyline was all that great. And all the historical golf facts and tidbits were too much for me. I can see how golf aficionados would love it though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 6/27/2010

    " If you play golf You must read this book. You will not regret it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 7/7/2009

    " Absolutely loved it. I really don't know how much I would have liked it if I wasn't been a golfer, or didn't known of all the famous golfers who are part of this story. But I enjoyed it as much as any book I've ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 5/2/2009

    " A decent golf mystery but some of the rounds he plays are unrealistic. I mean a 69 at Augusta Ntl on like your 1st round in a year? "
