A Golf Match You'll Never Forget

Lying on An operating table, about to undergo emergency heart surgery, Elliott Goodman hears the voice of God--as in The Almighty--speaking to him. God, it seems, has a last-second wager for Elliott, challenging him to an eighteen-hole golf match. If Elliott wins, he'll be saved. If he loses. . .

God sends down eighteen legendary opponents to play against Elliott and to hopefully teach him a few tricks along the way. From Leonardo da Vinci (nice clubs) to Marilyn Monroe (nice. . .everything), Babe Ruth (pass the hot dogs), Abraham Lincoln (cheater!), and fourteen other luminaries, including Moses, John Lennon, Joan of Arc, Picasso, W.C. Fields, Gandhi, and Shakespeare, Elliott squares off against some of the most extraordinary people who've ever lived. As shots are analyzed, balls enter bunkers, and Freud drives the cart (control freak), Elliott has a chance to examine his life and his form, to see what he can correct or improve before facing his ultimate adversary.

Big-hearted and delightfully original, Match Made in Heaven is a timeless tale about finding joy and inspiration on the greatest of all courses--life.

"An engaging and often hilarious account of a star-studded round." --Bob Costas

"A great read. . .Bob Mitchell writes with wit, intelligence, and passion." --Bill Bradley

"Bob Mitchell's masterpiece reveals his genius for weaving life's wonderful lessons within a magical golf story." --Ann Liguori



Praise for this book
