I wrote "Sticks" not just as an entertaining story but also as a satire of the spectacular claims made by golf manufacturers about their equipment.
Playing golf is a rewarding experience. Unfortunately, playing it well requires skill, practice, patience and dedication. These are the things which most of us are unwilling or incapable of doing.
Most, myself included, would like to find a short cut to success whether it be in golf or anything else.
In golf, the short cut is usually a new well-advertised driver, the latest putter or even a "super ball" guaranteed to add an extra fifty yard to your drive. These rarely if ever, fulfill the average golfer's dream of spectacular play. The only improvement of his game that they might make is that his wallet is a bit lighter and his walk around the links is then possibly a bit less tiring.
So is there really a magic piece of equipment that will allow one to circumvent all required hard work?
"Sticks" addresses the question - "What if?
What if a magic shortcut really did exist and someone found it?"
Bob Andrews, the book's central character, may have found it!
How did he find it and what happens when he does?
You'll find out when you read "Sticks - A Golfer's Tale", the ultimate golf fantasy.
