The Dewsweepers: Seasons Of Golf And Friendship
The Dewsweepers: Seasons of Golf and Friendship
James Dodson, one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved golf journalists of all time, tells the story of an eclectic, eccentric group of men who call themselves the Dewsweepers-so named because they are the first players off the tee every weekend morning at an old club in upstate New York. "Adopted" by the Dewsweepers, Dodson sets out through the seasons of one all-too-brief golf year to try and get back in touch with the simpler joys and uncomplicated leisures that once made him fall madly in love with the royal and ancient game. As friendship deepens and each man's tale movingly and sometimes hilariously unfolds, the author's own life is ultimately tested, examined, and changed-for the better. Through laughter and tears, he reveals intimate details, and finds that each Dewsweeper-including and maybe especially the author himself-needs golf and friendship at the core of his life.
