The Life of O'Reilly -Amusing Adventures of a professional Irish Caddy

by John O'Reilly with Ivan Morris

Book Description

To many players on the European Tour, he is simply "Reilly." To Seve Ballesteros, however, he is "The Legend." His real name is John O’Reilly, and for over 25 years he was one of European golf’s most famous caddies. Some might say "infamous." The Life of O’Reilly is a chronicle of John’s career as a caddie, and it’s full of funny stories as only this Irishman can tell them. Like the one about him being in San Francisco and having to get to New Zealand for the World Cup by going first to Atlanta, then London, then Atlanta, then Los Angeles, and then, finally, on to Auckland - for a total of 44 hours of flying! Or the one about the Tour pro who put his foot through his bag after a bad shot and could not get it out again! The Life of O’Reilly is a rollicking ride around the world of professional golf with one of the game’s most interesting characters. I hope that you’ll find this book as entertaining as I found Johnny to be throughout our three successful years on tour. There was never a dull moment!
