The Greens of Wrath
It's not Caddyshack. This is an epic tale, the story of a family of golf migrants wandering the globe in search of the Holy Grail of Golf; the primary conflict is . . . they don't know what it is.
Dad, a US Army paratrooper, sort of Sgt. Rock with a golf fixation, thinks the treasure is winning on the pro tour, like his heroes, Hogan and Palmer. Momma, a small town beauty parlor operator, believes the ultimate goal is holding the family together without anybody dying. She is up against huge odds as they gypsy around, first as an Army family and then as part of the nomadic golf tribe.
Younger brother Palmer is a true golfer, gifted with the magic golf touch and the secret knowledge of how a golf course works, but he is growing up during the turmoil of Viet Nam, the hippie insurrection and a society in upheaval.
The goal is always within reach, for Dad, Momma and Palmer, but there is a problem and his name is Willy.
Willy is the older brother, the family workhorse on the golf course and a prankster of the kind never seen before or since, upon a golf course. The Greens of Wrath is a twisted, hallucinogenic account of Willy and his trip through a realm of golf most people never knew existed.
