AuthorHouse, 2003 - 140 Seiten
With millions in prize money up for grabs, can the outcome of professional golf tournaments be rigged? Such is the crux of this suspenseful, tender, sometimes raunchy novel.
Charismatic up-and-comer Peter Frazier marries the daughter—and only child—of wealthy Arizona industrialist Julius Giles. Frazier joins Giles’ company, becomes vice president and settles into a cushy lifestyle.
Meanwhile, North Carolinian Byron Pickens is growing up with a golf club in his hands and the ancient-and-noble game on his mind. Uncommonly talented, the baby-faced standout is wooed by college coaches. In a fateful decision he chooses a nearby, traditional school where he finds the love of his life in tennis whiz Lauren Cobb—and sees his own game skyrocket.
Frazier and Pickens meet when paired in a glamorous USGA golf tournament. A friendship develops, and Frazier keeps the doors open to a potential superstar.
Turning arrogant, Frazier, a philanderer, finds his salary pink-slipped by a disgusted father-in-law. After Giles suffers a stroke, however, Frazier envisions supplementing his income through cunning abuses. One is a scheme apt to win handsome payoffs by stealthily managing golf tournament outcomes.
When Pickens becomes Frazier’s target, can he be protected by golf’s mythical but steadfast Guild of Honor?
