Golf Beat: A Year in the Life of Persimmon Pines by Larry Caringer

Golf Beat: A Year in the Life of Persimmon Pines


Golf Beat: A Year in the Life of Persimmon Pines by Larry Caringer

Ripped directly from the pages of The Persimmon Pines Times, Golf Beat: A Year in the Life of Persimmon Pines provides a year's worth of electrifying articles exposing the day-to-day drama of Golf in a small town. Through the eyes of Staff Writer Brent Green, we get to go where few dare to tread. With incisive questions, dogged determination and the dumb luck of being in the right place at the right time, Mr. Green takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotion as we experience everything that happens on and off the course during a year in the life of Persimmon Pines. Author, Larry Caringer is a former PGA Club Professional, a successful Amateur Golfer, a Writer and a Morning Radio Humorist. His experience on both sides of the Pro Shop counter and at both ends of Golf's obsession scale make him uniquely qualified to poke fun at a sport that, quite often, takes itself a little too seriously.
