About the author (1987)

John Coyne was twelve when he became a caddie at Midlothian Country Club, south of Chicago, Illinois. At sixteen he was promoted to caddie master, which even today he considers the most demanding work he has ever done. After graduating from Saint Louis University, he served with the Peace Corps in Ethiopia and did a stint as dean of students at a New York college before becoming a full-time writer. Since then he has written more than twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, and while he has edited three books on golf instruction, this is his first novel about golf, his lifelong passion. Today, in addition to writing, he is working at a college again and edits the Web site He lives in Pelham Manor, New York, with his wife and son.
