Synopsis

From the deep South to the PGA Tour, the hilarious and inspiring memoir of golfer Boo Weekley



Ever since his breakout performance at the 2008 Ryder Cup, professional golfer Thomas Brent Weekley, known affectionately as "Boo," has captivated fans with his eccentric, Southern-fried country humor and incredible path to the top of the PGA Tour.



True Boo is the candid and often hilarious memoir of a larger-than-life athlete, and a wild behind-the-scenes look at life on the PGA Tour. Boo takes readers on a rollicking journey that begins with his humble childhood growing up in Milton, Florida. Called "a nobody from nowhere" and the "Crocodile Dundee of golf," Boo had to earn respect on the Tour. His game ascended in record time, culminating in his now legendary Ryder Cup victories—going 2-0-1 in his three matches—and his back-to-back Verizon Heritage wins.



With stories of his personal relationships with other players on tour including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, frequent down-home phrases, figures of speech, locker-room language, plenty of "Booisms" and never-before-seen photos, this is a golf book unlike any other.
