The sport of golf has fascinated players for centuries. Defined by precision, patience and obedience, it is revered as a microcosm of life itself. But that’s a description endorsed by only one side of the game: the players, who swing only one club at a time.

LOOPS: TALES FROM BEHIND THE BAG offers a uniquely original and never before heard voice on the subject, from an overlooked and misunderstood yet inherent part of the game: the caddie. Drawing from his ten-year career as a private golf club caddie, former “looper” John Druska weaves a complex narrative that is equal parts humorous, heartfelt and downright bewildering – and about far more than the game of golf.

Druska’s stories include miraculous shots and tournament triumphs, but prepare to detour through the cutthroat culture of the adolescent caddieshack, the absurd escapades of his teenage co-workers, and the darkest secrets of his trusted clients.

LOOPS: TALES FROM BEHIND THE BAG is a story of greed, gratitude and growing up too fast that literally spans millennia. Whether you’re a fan of the sport or completely uninterested, Druska will leave you entertained and enthralled with each of his anecdotes and every one of his Loops.
