Rate this:
He had one of the best careers the game has ever known -- yet you won't find his record in any of golf's history books. He defeated almost every one of golf's legendary players in head-to-head matches -- yet you can't read about his victories in any of the old sports pages. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, his closest friend was the greatest amateur to ever play the game -- yet Bobby Jones never spoke his name in public.

J. Michael Veron's tale about one of golf's most talented and mysterious figures -- and the man who solves this mystery -- is a rare triumph in golf fiction. Like few others before it, The Greatest Player Who Never Lived is much more than a golf book -- it's about perseverance over adversity, and friendship over abandonment. Without a doubt, this beautifully written, heart-warning story is certain to be enjoyed by all lovers of exceptional fiction. The Greatest Player Who Never a winner.
