    1. Patterson and de Jonge offer up a heartfelt story about a man looking to pursue his passion.

After attending qualifying school, McKinley earns one year on the T [...]

    2. This the prequel to Miracle at Augusta. I really enjoyed this book but didn't like Miracle at Augusta at all! This story is not very believable, but Miracle at Augusta was beyond belief! I think you will enjoy this book if you are a golfer and a fan of James Patterson, If not,skip it and read Alex Cross.

    3. This is a nice holiday read. It's mainstream fiction, perhaps a little predictable (but for me it did deliver a couple of surprises). But if you're looking for a short, positive Christmas story, you are sure to enjoy it.My favorite parts are where the main character interacts with real golf celebrities. --John

    4. I'm not a big review writer, but I loved this book! It's heartwarming, humorous, and very touching. Don't worry if you've never played golf, the story is about so much more than that.

    5. I enjoyed this short, easy to read novel. I enjoyed it more than Patterson's Miracle at Augusta."I was doing what my heart told me to do".

    6. I was not sure if I was going to like this one. For one thing, I am not necessarily a huge fan of golf. Secondly, I haven't really liked any of the books that James Patterson has written with Peter de Jonge. This one proved to be a nice surprising exception.Travis McKinley is at a point in his life where he is starting to look back and wish that he had made some different decisions. He is a moderately successful adman. He has three children and is happily married to and OBGYN. One Christmas day, [...]

    7. I read somewhere that you did not have to love, or even know much about, the game of golf to really enjoy this story. WRONG! Despite growing up with a father who's mantra was "it never rains on the golf course" I know very little about the game. I am okay with that. This book however, did require some knowledge of the game beyond your typical surface knowledge. I do believe I would have enjoyed it more if I understood more about the way a golfer thinks. Travis seems to be at the end of his rope [...]

    8. This book is about an older gentleman who has been struggling to keep his family life together while trying to enjoy whats left of his own. Travis McKinley, has just turned fifty, has been turned out by his family, and has been fired from a company that he has been working for for 23 years. His wife and kids are slipping, but his journey for redemption has just begun. Travis gets a crazy idea that leads him to trying out for the Senior PGA Tour. Suprisingly he makes it. At first, he believes tha [...]

    9. Very quick read. Nice story. I am not a golf fand other than hitting a bucket of golf balls at the combined putt-putt course, my knowledge of golf is severely limited. But, I could follow it and even enjoy the story! So, that said.you do not have to be a golf fan. I also was mislead in my own thinkingought the "miracle" was some type of special power or supernatural interventionrhaps reading Patterson's Bird Children books made me think that way. Instead, this is just a good story about a "talen [...]

    10. Miracle on the 17th GreenPart 1 SummaryIn the beginning of the Miracle on the 17th Green, you find out who the main character is. Travis McKinley opens the story while playing a round of golf, clearly in the zone. Round after round, he plays all 18 holes on the golf course and goes back to play it again, working on his putting. He only realizes that when he gets done with his third round on the golf course that he realizes that he is late for his Christmas dinner with his family. As a matter of [...]

    11. Part 1. At the beginning of part 1 of Miracle on 17th green it talks about how Travis is at the golf course on Christmas day. Right from the start I don’t like the guy. I mean really what kind of guy is at the golf course on Christmas day. It goes on to tell how he plays golf and ends up missing Christmas Dinner with his family, yes he has a family. Hard to believe you would think. You come to realize this is a normal thing for Travis to let his family down because the kids that he has are not [...]

    12. Travis McKinley is not very happy with his lifw. His family is great, he loves his a wife but his job as an advertising jiggle slogan maker is so ethibg he hates. His real passion is golf. One Christmas he is late for dinner as he was playing golf. He knows he is really in trouble. Thibgs have not been good between him and his wife. Just after New Years he is let go from the ad agency.

    13. MIRACLE ON THE 17TH GREEN Travis McKinley has worked for 23 years in advertising but hates his job so he spends $3000 to enter himself in the Senior PGA. He leaves his family and flies down to Tallahassee to join 120 senior golfers competing to claim the top 30 spots and golfs well enough to claim a spot, but before the tour starts, Travis spends enough time practicing to learn how to perfectly hit each of his clubs. His new golfing skills catapult him into the PGA Senior Open, where he advances [...]

    14. 4* Delightful! I know which end of a golf club is the handle and that the other end is called the head. After that, I’m lost. But even I recognized some of the names that come up in this book and was surprised that, even though I have never followed golf, I had somehow developed a fondness for Lee Trevino. His part reaffirms my choice.It is a lovely story and easy to listen to. A nice, gentle novel that I look forward to enjoying again in the future.Good one!

    15. Excellent story of a man who dislikes his job & gets fired, learns his marriage is rocky & not in tune with his kids. One Christmas Day, he goes to play golf and finds he is making phenomenal shots!Travis McKinley makes some life choices while encountering miracles. Highly recommend this great story which is an easy read, but thought provoking.

    16. This was quite different than the typical James Patterson book, but I really enjoyed both the change in subject matter and also the subject matter itself. A very easy read makes it a book that was a 'pleasure read' and not 'work'!

    17. I bought this book for my Husband because he loves to golf and I have read James Patterson book before and enjoyed them. I ended up reading this book first. I finished it in one day, it was a quick read book, easy to do when they are a page turner. I am glad I bought it, great book.

    18. Travis McKinley, an unhappy ad executive, experiences a miracle on the 17th green on Christmas Day, setting him on a journey he only dreamed was possible. His adventure leads to his winning the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach, but more importantly, he wins back his family.

    19. A 50-year-old copywriter gets laid off from Leo Burnett and decides to try out for golf’s Senior Tour. This I was written 20 years ago. It is a heart-warming story and a quick read. If you enjoy golf you will like it. This is the first James Patterson book I’ve read.

    20. It almost lost me in the beginning because I don't play golf and the descriptive terms glazed over my eyes. I'm glad I persevered because the family dynamics saved the story for me.

    21. Really good, a very light book about golf and a man's mid-life crisis. In parts, it was cheesy but overall a fun read.
