Miracle at Augusta

By James Patterson, Peter de Jonge (Hardcover Book, 2015)
An inspiring story of hope, redemption, and trying to hit the ball straight.

A year ago, Travis McKinley, an unknown golfing amateur, shocked the world by winning the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach. Now he's famous, he makes his living playing the game he loves, and everything should be perfect. Still Travis can't shake the feeling that he's a fraud, an imposter who doesn't deserve his success - and after a series of disappointments and, to be honest, personal screw-ups, he might just prove himself right.

A shot at redemption arrives in an unexpected form: a teenage outcast with troubles of his own - and a natural golf swing. As this unlikely duo sets out to achieve the impossible on the world's most revered golf course, Travis is about to learn that sometimes the greatest miracles of all take place when no one is watching.

  • "Miracle on the 17th Green is...where miracles can happen to those who learn to dream again." (Calgary Sun).

  • "There are many among us who see golf as a healer of the soul and Miracle on the 17th Green, is a wonderful example of how uplifting that belief can be." (John Feinstein, author of Are You Kidding Me?).

  • "Even if you don't know a birdie from a putter you can still enjoy this sweet tale of a middle-aged golfer's extraordinary blossoming." (The Evening Post (Wellington)).

  • "This is a hopeful little gem, and you don't even have to like golf to enjoy it." (BookReporter.com).

  • "A cross between It's a Wonderful Life and a masculine version of Sleeping Beauty." (Library Journal).

  • "Patterson and coauthor de Jonge add a new twist by melding a golf story onto a sentimental Christmas fable. The resulting plot is sort of Rocky Does the Senior Tour with just a hint of It's a Wonderful Life." (BookList ).
