The Life of O'Reilly: The Amusing Adventures of a Professional Irish Caddie by John O'Reilly

The Life of Oa Reilly is a chronicle of the career of one of the European PGA Toura s most famous caddies--John Oa Reilly--and ita s full of funny stories as only this Irishman can tell them. Like the one about the time he and some fellow caddies were arrested and jailed in East Germany on their way to the German Open in Berlin. Or the one about the Tour pro who, in a fit of temper after a bad shot, put his foot through the bottom of his golf bag and could not get it out again! The Life of Oa Reilly is a rollicking ride around the world--and the world of professional golf--by one of the gamea s most interesting characters. No golf library would be complete without it. "I hope that youa ll find this book as entertaining as I found Johnny to be throughout our three successful years on tour. There was never a dull moment!" ----Padraig Harrington
