In 1973 a 19 year old kid named Bruce Edwards got an incredibly lucky break when he picked up the bag of the soon to be great Tom Watson. That year marked the beginning of a wonderful partnership that spanned 30 years and yielded multiple major championship victories. This biography chronicles one of the greatest caddy careers there has ever been from its inception to its sudden and tragic end in 2004 when Bruce lost his fight with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Told from inside the ropes, this tale of friendship, perseverance, success, and devastating loss will have you laughing, cheering and shedding tears. Golf may be the context for this story, but anyone who has ever had a best friend or brother can identify with this book. One word of advice . . . do not read this book on a plane unless you are man enough to cry in public. Highly recommended for anyone with a pulse.
