The funniest and most popular sportswriter in America abandons his desk at Sports Illustrated to caddy for some of the world’s most famous golfers—and some celebrity duffers—with hilarious results.

Who knows golfers best? Who’s with them every minute of every round, hears their muttering, knows whether they cheat? Their caddies, of course. So sportswriter Rick Reilly figured that he could learn a lot about the players and their games by caddying, even though he had absolutely no idea how to do it. Amazingly, some of the best golfers in the world—including Jack Nicklaus, David Duval, Tom Lehman, John Daly, Casey Martin, and Jill McGill—agreed to let Reilly carry their bags at actual PGA and LPGA Tour events. Reilly also caddied at the Masters, persuaded Deepak Chopra and Donald Trump to use him as a caddy, accompanied high-rolling golf hustlers in Las Vegas around the course, and carried the bag for a blind golfer.

Between his hilarious descriptions of his own ineptitude as a caddy and his insight into what makes the greats of golf so great, Reilly’s wicked wit and an expert’s eye provide readers with the next best thing to a great round of golf.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tad | 1/3/2014

    " Rick Reilly is absolutely hilarious and by consensus the best sportswriter of our time. In this book, he caddies for top senior, men's and women's golfers, a blind man and Donald Trump. Every page has a laugh. Reilly is a master at simile and metaphor, and such colorful writing is delightful. Warning: Many pages are also a blue, as in there is a lot of swearing and innuendo. The chapter on John Daly is particularly close to R rated. Definitely PG-13 and really more, closer to R, if not that. Therefore, I have to recommend it with caution. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kent Disch | 12/21/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenn | 12/4/2013

    " My new boss was talking about this book for the characters mentioned... Mainly the high stakes gambler. Not a book that will make you any smarter but typically entertaining, short chapters. Good bathroom material. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 10/2/2013

    " Reilly is very funny. I would think any golfer would enjoy this book. It does have bad words but nothing I haven't heard on the golf course. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 9/20/2013

    " Some great one-liners and a fairly fast non-fiction read. I enjoyed insight into the personalities - Trump, Chopra, his gambling buddy, and several PGA guys. The style is a little redundant by the end, but still a good read. "

    " Rick Reilly's a great sports writer, no doubt. This is a good book, easy to read. The fourth star is withheld because he mentions the prodigious proportions of John Daly's wang. Thanks, but no thanks, Rick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charly | 7/21/2012
