Follow The Wind
Like W.P. Kinsella’s Shoeless Joe — the basis for the movie Field of Dreams — Follow the Wind is sports fantasy at its finest and most poignant. A young man following an errant shot into the woods emerges on a totally unfamiliar golf course. The first person he encounters is the legendary Ben Hogan, feverishly practicing for something special.
As Links weaves his tale, introducing such golfing greats as Walter Hagen, Bobby Jones, Alister MacKenzie, and the famous nineteenth century Scottish champions Old and Young Tom Morris, he recreates the most momentous events in golfing history and captures the magic that has lured millions to the fairway. For fans of Harvey Penick’s books and for everyone who has searched for inspiration on the golf course, Follow the Wind offers the satisfaction of a perfect shot that soars for the flagstick.
