Praise for Missing Links

“The best golf novel in decades.”
Boston Herald

“Part Damon Runyon, part Raymond Chandler, and part Caddyshack . . . I was hooked for the full 18.”
Entertainment Weekly

“You don’t need to know your bogeys from your birdies to find at least three laughs per page in this novel.”
New York Times Book Review

“Snappy prose, believable characters, and the funniest take on blue-collar hacking and gambling since Dan Jenkins’s The Glory Game at Boat Hill . . . it’s social satire and pure irreverence that keep this story in the grove.”
—Los Angeles Times

“A great piece of fiction.”
Denver Post

“Easily the wittiest golf novel yet, the Bull Durham of the genre, and the closest thing to Caddyshack on paper we’re likely to get.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Somebody forgot to tell Rick Reilly that you can’t put sex, laughs, tragedy, suspense, and real relationships into a golf novel. Golf novels are supposed to be about somebody in Scotland discovering the Vardon grip.”

—Dan Patrick, ESPN commentator

“This is golf as I know it, lewd, rude, and very shrewd . . . Rick Reilly has captured golf on its primal table. Full of characters from the other end of the food chain.”

—Gary McCord, CBS commentator
