Bobby Jobe is a pro golfer whose swing is better than his attitude. When he bogies the last four holes and blows his lead in a major tournament -- again -- he berates his caddy, Henry "Greyhound" Mote. Jobe loses both Greyhound, who walks off the course, and the game. And before the day is out, he'll lose his eyesight to a lightning strike and his future in golf -- unless he can do what no one has ever done blind: make a comeback. Bob Cullen's funny and wise story, full of PGA lore, perfectly captures the mysterious and irresistible nature of the game of golf, not to mention, love, friendship, and life.

Customer Reviews of A Mulligan For Bobby Jobe: A Novel

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I read A Mulligan For Bobby Jobe in summer of 2003 and fell in love with it. After reading the first chapter I was hooked and completed the book the next day. Robert Cullen's slick dialogue and vocab made for intense conversation, and his sense of excitement and intensity made for a great read. I love golf and this story only encouraged me to put more into my game on the course. This book is a must read and I look forward to my next Robert Cullen read! I personally rate this story a smooth 5 under par (*****)
