Top customer reviews
King of Clubs is a wonderful short read, and a perfect companion for a long-ish airplane flight or rainy afternoon by the fire. I thoroughly enjoyed King of Clubs, and would recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in sports history.
This book is for golf lovers, sports lovers or anyone who just enjoys a good story. It's a quick and enjoyable read.
My only question is -- when are they going to make a movie about this story? And how is it possible it took more than seven decades for someone to unearth it and share it?
Great job Jim Ducibella.
