For Life: The Bruce Edwards Story
Sportswriter Feinstein (Open; The Majors) delivers another solid look at the
world of golf and its many interesting personalities, and this newest is his
most intimate work so far. His subject is Bruce Edwards, who has been known
within golf's tight-knit world as the caddy for over 40 years for legendary pro
Tom Watson. Edwards's life story is a microcosm of the changes in modern
professional golfing, and this book will thoroughly entertain golf fans. The
personal edge in Feinstein's writing comes from the fact-acknowledged
immediately in the book's introduction-that Edwards was diagnosed in 2003 with
ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease, and that he found this out only 15 days after
proposing to the longtime love of his life. Fortunately, Feinstein is skilled at
looking at Edwards's professional and personal challenges without becoming
mawkish and delivers a solid testament to a life well led. Feinstein nicely
captures how Edwards, by caddying for Watson, "became the public face of
those changes"-from Edwards's teenage years, working only at individual
clubs for small change with a range of golfers competing for purses that were
one-thirtieth of what they are now, to today, when a caddy can make an annual
income well into six figures working for a successful player. The book, in
effect, also offers a fine bio of Watson, as Feinstein recounts in energetic
detail the many important tournaments that Watson won with Edwards's assistance.
