Description

Charlie McLeod was a golf prodigy. His father taught him the game and then injury took it away. Twenty-five years after his last swing, McLeod is finally back on the course, working as a caddy in San Francisco. Though he is older and slightly disheveled, he can still drive the ball as straight and as far as the best players in the world. When his extraordinary skills are discovered, he quickly becomes embroiled in a high stakes game between his wealthy employers and a ferocious pro. What ensues is the hilarious and touching story of an underdog and the joys and life lessons found in the great game of golf.

Billy Mott:
Billy Mott was born in Pittsburgh in 1956, served in the Air Force in the mid-seventies, graduated from Point Park College and worked as an actor in Pittsburgh (not easy, as he says) until moving to Los Angeles. He appeared in a variety of TV shows and movies, caddying in between gigs, and began writing at the age of 36. After stints in San Francisco and Pittsburgh (again), he moved back to L.A., where he caddies still.
