Guys, my forte is golf and writing - not politics! I made an observation as an outsider. The book is titled 'Tour Confidential' not 'Politics 101'

The book is titled ‘Tour Confidential’ not ‘Politics 101’

granted that, BUT, you did make that observation. I haven't read your book and have no idea of the context. I just love how most Aussies seem to care more about the US elections but couldn't name their local MP. I vomit every time I see a facebook post imploring for a certain candidate to be the victor in the US. Other than that, I reckon your book sounds like a good read. Might check it out on vacation this week :)

I just merely stated that Trump is a savvy businessman and the country could do with someone as knowledgeable as him
Trump is major ****** bag. He will never run for prez.

hey EP, good on you for having a go. Too many just don't, and those that do cop it too often in Australia. Good Luck with whatever comes your way.......

@iron_mick, Appreciate the support. I've had a lot of positive reviews thus far. I believe it provides a great and unique insight into our world that not too many people know about. All the best!!!

Managed to get the first chapter in the brain box today EP A good read and would be a reality check for future golfers having a crack. Plenty of use in the details fir hackers like me too.

well - i finished the book/kindle this morning. .kept me interested coz i finished it in 3 sessions. And I have only ever read 3 books in my lifetime. As EP said in an earlier post, 1000 golfers could write a similar story - it's a tough life. Never a dull moment in this guy's life - talk about ups & downs.... jeez. Talented and persistent but time and time again, fell just short. gotta keep off the piss and gotta be able to finish a round off if ur gonna make it in the big league. I applaud him for putting it on paper, a good reality read.

@Severiano, Thank you for the kind words. I'm glad you liked it and the idea was to try and take the reader on the rollercoaster with me - feel the same emotions we do. It's a grind but as tough as it has been, once you get a bit of perspective you realise it beats a 9-5 office job (well my opinion anyway). @Talart, I'm in talks right now to have a paperback version available for release in the early part of 2013.

I have woken up and read a few chapters this morning, great read. Love the bit about the young Aussie who took his fiancee with him to the Asian Tour and was caught, 'in a compromising situation with two locals' never seen or heard from again!! Good on you pgamember, I have been a big fan ever since watching you smash a quality field at Moonah, you are still very young, fire up and get out there and WIN!

Congrats and well done on the book EP. I guess there was also a certain amount of self search and self realisation that came about during the writing of the book as well? Best of luck with everything mate and hope to see it ihard print, the way I like my reading.

Thank you for the kind words guys. It will be released as a paperback in early 2013 - was hard enough getting it released as an eBook. It certainly did make me sit back and reflect on where I've gone wrong and what I could have done differently. No matter what level you're at in this game, we all have mental barriers to overcome.

It certainly did make me sit back and reflect on where I’ve gone wrong and what I could have done differently. No matter what level you’re at in this game, we all have mental barriers to overcome.

Is this your effort to cash in on your fame. I didn't realise you were famous, but I'm starting to think you're on your way to becoming famous. Good luck with the publication..
