JOHN COYNE was twelve when he became a caddie at Midlothian Country Club, south of Chicago, Illinois. At sixteen he was promoted to caddie master, which even today he considers the most demanding work he has ever done. After graduating from Saint Louis University, he served with the Peace Corps in Ethiopia and did a stint as dean of students at a New York college before becoming a full-time writer. Since then he has written more than twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, and while he has edited three books on golf instruction, this is his first novel about golf, his lifelong passion. Today, in addition to writing, he is working at a college again and edits the Web site He lives in Pelham Manor, New York, with his wife and son.

Praise for The Caddie Who Played with Hickory:

"A highly entertaining must-read for anyone interested in hickory golf or the history of the game. I loved it!"
-- Randy Jensen, 7-time National Hickory Golf Champion

“Coyne’s engrossing hole-in-one . . . [His] neat plotting and firm grip on even the most obscure corners of the sport make this the perfect treat for hackers and pros alike.”
--Publishers Weekly

"John Coyne knows his golf history, its characters and the game. He spins a story that includes a mysterious character, a hero, a romance, a semi-villain, and a classic golf match into a believable tale."
-- Dr. Gary Wiren, noted golf teacher, and former Director of Research and Learning for the PGA of America

“The legendary Walter Hagen, Chicago’s greatest amateur golfer, Chick Evans, hickory clubs and Chicago’s Midlothian Country Club are all featured in this tense story of championship golf and summer romance.  John Coyne spins a tale so involving, the reader is in enjoyable suspense about the outcome of every putt.”  
-- Jerry Dudek, Director of Development, Evans Scholars Foundation/Western Golf Association
