Fathers, Sons and Golf is Andrew Shanley's account of the memorable summer when he and his boys hit the fairways and learned as much about the daily conduct of life, and the love they have for each other, as they did about the elements of a good swing. The book is structured as a series of golf lessons that at the same time are instruction for building character.
Andrew Shanley, divorced dad of two adolescent boys, discovers one day that his sons seem to have a shaky sense of ethics. He thinks that teaching them golf, a game he'd grown up loving, will help address the problem. In the process of getting them hooked on the game, he finds himself getting to know his sons instead of just accepting and loving them. He also discovers the deep spiritual importance that golf holds in his life. Fathers, Sons & Golfis a deeply felt book, the impact of which is diminished only slightly by the author's own comparisons to books that are better and authors who are more profound.
