According to an old pro, being unique doesn’t mean saying something that hasn’t been said before; rather, it means speaking the truth that you know to be true.

I started keeping notes and observations in what I came to refer to as my Little Red Book more than sixty years ago. I have only ever allowed my son Tinsley to read my Little Red Book until lately. Helen, my wife, could have read it, of course, but having spent her entire life with a mature caddy like me, Helen already knows all there is to know about golf.

Golf enthusiast Bud Shrake, who coauthored each of Penick’s books, passed away in 2009.
