This inspirational story from Robert Bailey is heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting, showing us all that it is never too late to live a wonderful life.

Four rounds. Four heroes. Four life-changing lessons.



'A celebration of faith, family and the human spirit, The Golfer's Carol is a page-turning story of love and second chances that is sure to become a classic' WINSTON GROOM, AUTHOR OF FORREST GUMP

When Randy Clark wakes up on the morning of his 40th birthday, he knows exactly what he's going to do that day. He's going to go to work. He's going to eat the steak dinner his wife has prepared him. He'll blow out the candles on his chocolate birthday cake. And then he's going to kill himself.

With his dreams of a professional golf career long gone, his marriage struggling after the death of his son, and facing financial ruin, Randy sees no other alternative to help his wife and daughter but to jump. To jump off a bridge, and to let the life insurance company do the rest.

But Randy's plans go awry when the ghost of his best friend gives him a surreal gift: four rounds of golf with his four heroes, four chances to learn from the best.

Four chances to change his fate. . .
