Twenty-seven years after his partner in a fledging oil company cheated him out of the CEO spot by sinking a hole-in-one blindfolded, a still-disgruntled Texan calls a grudge match. A thirteen-year-old boy, Billy Hemphill, is the caddie.

Caught up in the vicious match, Billy is immersed in a world of liars, cheats, and hustlers as he searches for life's simple truths and for the father he's never had.
