Summary: The hilarious sequel to Rick Reillyâ€™s beloved bestselling golf novel Missing Links
Life is going pretty well for Raymond â€œStickâ€ Hart. Heâ€™s happily married to the former Ponkaquogue Municipal Golf Club assistant pro, the beauteous Cajun firecracker Dannie, raising his rambunctious son, Charlie, and getting by writing smart-mouthed greeting cards for fifty bucks a pop. Best of all, nothing has changed at Ponky, the worst golf course in America. You still have to hook it past the toxic waste dump on No. 1 and under the billboard on No. 8, the fried-egg sandwiches are terrible but cheap, and his pal Two Down is always up for a sucker bet.
Then, one disaster of a day, Stickâ€™s world does a ten-car pile-up. The cheapskate bastard owner of Ponky announces heâ€™s retiring to a nudist camp in Florida and selling the club to the Mayflower Club next door, a bastion of blue-blood snobbery that plans to pave Ponky over. Worse, its membership includes Stickâ€™s hated father.
Who promptly drops dead.
Just before Stickâ€™s pal Two Down loses $12,000 to a golf hustler who turns out to be funded by the Russian mob.
Which is about the same time that Hoover, Ponkyâ€™s worst golfer and the owner of an impressive array of useless golf gadgets purchased with his wifeâ€™s money, learns sheâ€™ll cut him off if he doesnâ€™t break a hundred in one month.
Then a practical joke makes Dannie believe that Stickâ€™s been stepping out with the gorgeous new clubhouse girl, the eye-popping Kelly, and heâ€™s soon living on the forty-year-old couch in the Ponky clubhouse.
Luckily, Stick has a solution to all his problems.
Heâ€™ll qualify for the British Open.
