AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'At any given moment in time, as the world turns, millions of men and women are hacking, duffing, topping and shanking golf balls on resort courses and goat tracks from Pebble Beach to Pratt's Bottom.

'Mulligan documents a single, glorious spring week in the golfing lives of three such hacks in their quest for the inaugural Coolum Cup on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. Long-term mates and the keepers of each other's most intimate secrets, they pick and plod their way across numerous courses during their annual 'away' tour, carrying the heavy bag towards mid-life and an uncertain future.

'Who will lift the dung-shaped cup? Will Farquharson utilise his famous stroke-reducing pencil on his scorecard? Will the tech-savvy Dog stay off his mobile phone long enough to hit the longest drive in history? And who, in a threesome built on trust and old fashioned Australian mateship, will sneak the first mulligan?

'For the first time Mulligan takes you into the inner-sanctum of hackdom, reveals what is really spoken inside the mannered citadel of the golf course, and exposes the often hilarious, often heartbreakingly sad architecture of ordinary lives on the brink of change.' (Publisher's blurb)
