    1. TomCox Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Bring Me the Head of Sergio Garcia book, this is one of the most wanted TomCox author readers around the world.

    2. Tom Cox's column in Golf International is always the best thing about that magazine. Anyone who likes that will enjoy this often funny and occasionally poignant look at life on the lower league golf tours. Having started playing again after several years Cox takes the rather ambitious decision to take his 5 handicap game and try his luck as a pro, seeking invitations to Europro Tour events and trying to qualify for The Open with a view to finally fulfilling the talents he had shown as a junior. [...]

    3. This may have made a mildly interesting but self-indulgent feature article in a golf magazine, but as a book it is awful. There is really no story worth writing about; an okay amateur golfer as a youth turns 30, and on a hopelessly misplaced whim decides to call himself a pro. He enters some basement-ranked tournaments, is embarrassingly outclassed, makes a fool of himself and gives up. That's it. Using Sergio Garcia's name in the title is a marketing ploy that is very disingenuous, as is the ov [...]

    4. 2 out of 5 stars and a disappointing read. The quotes on the cover say things like "the funniest book about golf ever written" and "I laughed out loud". Well, I guess I need whatever they're taking because it just wasn't funny at all.The book's about a bloke who quits his job and tries to make it as a pro golfer. Whilst that's true it's a little bit disingenuous because he competes in some very low tier competitions on the Europro Tour (the vauxhall conference-ish of golfers) and barely gets abo [...]

    5. Recommended reading, should the thought ever enter your head to turn Proif this doesn't prepare you for the loneliness and soul searching that goes hand in hand with a good walk spoiled, then nothing else will. Great read and very funny.

    6. One of the funniest books about the trials and tribulations of the amateur golfer. How it messes with your head and gets you dreaming about how it could be if only you had more talent. A lot of laughs for the golfer, possibly nearly incomprehensible to a non sportsman.

    7. Have not read many books realting to sport but this was very good. Well written and enjoyed the humour of the author!

    8. I'm not a golfer but as a fan of Tom Cox's great writing, I enjoyed this book anyway. Wry, self-deprecating story of Tom's struggle to be a pro-golfer for a year. Funny in parts.
