Out Of The Rough
By Steve Williams
I received a free copy of Out Of The Rough for my honest opinion. I would like to thank Penguin Book Australia for sending me a copy. I have meet Steve in a golf tournament in 2009 and he was extremely nice and it was really interesting reading this book.
Steve Williams has caddied for many great golfers, most famously for Tiger Woods for 13 years. Out Of The Rough is an account of how Williams became a caddie, as well as explaining his unique style of caddying and his experience as the best caddie ever (apart from my dad in my opinion).
If you think that Out Of The Rough is a tell-all book about Tigers life, then think again. Williams has respected Tigers privacy, but has given a insiders look into what Tiger Woods was like in his dominant years, and the years to follow.
As a golfer, i personally wanted to read more about Williams time as Greg Norman’s and Adam Scott’s caddie. Yes a huge proportion of Williams career was with Tiger, and that is what Williams is known for, but his early years as Norman’s caddie defined him as a caddie.
Out Of The Rough has an handy glossary of golfing terms for any non-golfers who read it. I would defiantly recommend Out Of The Rough at all golfers, as well as anyone who is interested in sports.
