By: Dylan Dethier
Over the course of a year, 18-year-old Dylan Dethier set out in his dusty Subaru to play a round of golf in each of the 48 contiguous states. As his project gained attention from the sports community, he met heroes including legendary golfer Phil Mickelson and Michael Jordan; teed off at Pebble Beach and Augusta; and played nearly 150 rounds of golf. In crisp prose and with a wry, engaging voice, Dylan takes us beyond his own reflections to weave a surprising and memorable portrait of America and it’s golfers. A perfect read for Dads who live at the country club all summer.
