Known as one of the game’s most fiery and feisty competitors, he has seen and experienced it all. He reveals the truth about substance abuse and rampant sexual infidelity by golfers on tour. He goes head to head with Donald Trump, and watches as his girlfriend gives President Bill Clinton a golf lesson on his 65th birthday.

Good on Ewan. I hope his book does well.

Seems Ewan is like a boxer, retired 3 times and is now on the comeback trail. Good luck with the book!

Congrats to Ewan on his win yesterday at the Betstar Invitational Pro-Am at Woodlands. Great score of 67 in brutal winds, I caddied on the day so I can attest to how tough it was out there!

Golfers uss drugs....As most of society does. High income, lots of disposable time and high pressure job (pressure to win or just keep their card) Flash hotels. I will read it.

Can anyone find it on iTunes? I just looked and couldn't. What is the title? Keen to read it, great admirer of Ewan ever since he won that co-sanctioned tournament at Moonah Links, when he is hot he is one of the best to watch in Australia. Smoking hot missus too.

How many supermodels did you "get to know" whilst on tour? Err ... disregard ... only joking bud. ;)

Having just read a few chapters, you make a large point of explaining how cocky and brash you were at the beginning. You mention remorse about your dealings with Radar. In hindsight do you regard your attitude with pride or shame, or just accept it for what it was ?

Definitely with pride Waffle. I'd swap cockiness and naivety/ignorance for self doubt any day. The self doubt comes with the territory once you've been dealt a few blows but the toughest characters mentally are the ones that can overcome these hurdles. Radar and I got along really well when I was a kid, had our ups and downs and are good mates again. I just wish I hadn't been as stubborn and open to a little more advice.

Don't want to sound like I'm blowing my own trumpet but it's just gone to Number 1 on Amazon's Kindle Golf category!
