Masquerade - Critical Role RPG Episode 99
Thank you! Journalist Shipnuck Sports Illustrated , Golf takes us on a wild ride through a year in the life of rising star Rich Beem and his caddy Steve Duplantis. Duplantis, on the other hand, was a veteran of the circuit, freshly fired from a plum job with PGA star Jim Furyk for showing up late too many times after much partying.
It's and although Rich Beem has just been nominated for Rookie of the Year following his first ever victory, he's still just another golfer on the PGA Tour desperately trying to break out from Tiger's shadow. Alan Shipnuck takes us inside Beem's world, exploring the complex relationship with his faithful caddie, Steve Duplantis, from being arrested together for drink-driving at Carnoustie, all the way to glorious and unexpected victory at the PGA Championship. Through the unlikely partnership of golfer Rick Beem and his caddie Steve Duplantis, Shipnuck shows all the highs and lows, temptations and pitfalls that await all players on the Tour. Despite its droll title, Sports Illustrated writer Shipnuck's first book affords an earnest and unsentimental portrayal of life on the PGA tour. It follows two of golf's lesser-known figures through the season: a rookie named Rich Beem, who won the Kemper Open that year, and his caddie Steve Duplantis. Both men open up to Shipnuck about their personal histories, as do their families, friends, colleagues, lovers and former employers. Tightly weaving the private with the professional, the author chronicles Beem's inconsistent, occasionally brilliant performances on the golf course, alongside his past jobs, romances and periodic problems with alcohol.
Start by marking “Bud, Sweat & Tees: A Walk on the Wild Side of the PGA Tour” as Want to Read: The PGA Tour is the most interesting subculture in sports, though you wouldn't know it from most golf books. The Tour is home to rowdy, randy young men often drunk with money and fame.
