Some Comments

“I have learned to admire writing that is not forced, that is engaging and sincere. I would wager there are few who can assemble the detailed memories of their lives in the way that you have done. Extraordinary. This is pure Americana, related by one with the skills to make the narrative appealing, even to those who did not grow up as “cheese heads”. 
Jim Davis – Golf Heritage Society
“What a great heartwarming story. I love the anecdote about your mother and the 30 cents a dozen sweet corn being too expensive, very old school, a different generation and a different time. I also like how you worked in the then current music into each year, it brings back a lot of good memories.” 
John Sabino – Valuable Book Group
“Summers at the Muni, it is a heartfelt, coming-of-age tale of life in the 1950s and ’60s – and of a place the author describes as “magical” and representing “the heart of golf.” The book also serves as a tribute to a father lost – and later found – as well as an ode to public golf and all the good it can do for a young man.”
  John Steinbreder – Global Golf Post Plus
