Maybe It Should Have Been a Three-Iron is the funny and poignant story of one man's search for sporting glory.

Lawrence Donegan had the desire but lacked the talent to be a professional golfer, so he settled for the next best thing--caddying for Ross Drummond, a little-known pro on the European PGA tour, ranking 438th in the world. With self-deprecating humor, Donegan recounts the days and endless nights he spent on the road with Drummond as they existed on a string of meager tournament checks and chased the elusive "big win" much as Don Quixote and Sancho Panza chased windmills.

Lawrence Donegan was born in Scotland and studied politics at Glasgow University. He now works as a journalist for the Guardian and lives in Glasgow.
