Now a respected and elderly historian, Jack recounts the love affair between a young golf pro and the daughter of the country club president, as well as a tense and dramatic golf match between Hogan and the young pro. At the end of a magical summer, the club pro will win and lose at golf and love, and the teenage caddie will learn lessons for life taught to him by one of the great gentlemen and players of the game, Ben Hogan.
