"What a fun and relaxing way to both revisit and explore the great golf courses of America! Confessions of a Golfaholic is an easy and enjoyable read that makes you feel like you are actually with Paul as he experiences both the fun and frustrations of the ultimate golf road trip!"Mike SmallHead Coach, Men's Golf, University of Illinois2015 GCAA Coach of the Year"Paul Laubach needs help. But until he gets it, good for him for seeing his obsession to its logical end. I'd play Pebble Beach with him anytime."Cameron MorfitSenior Writer, GOLF Magazine and Sports IllustratedLaubach's book was a breezy read about the do's and don'ts while chasing down playing America's top 100 public courses. It sold me on my opinion that I shouldn't really bother to try it. The only detail missing was his personal ranking of the top 100 to compare against mine.Jason Scott DeeganSenior Writer, Golf Advisor"Congratulations on being the only person to play the top 100 golf courses and not be invited back to play any of them."Fred Lynn1975 MLB MVP and Fellow Dewsweeper
