I have a friend, a guy called John, who is undertaking a golf challenge. He has a full-time job and a wife and child and he’s trying to shoot a level par round within the year. When he started the challenge he couldn’t break one hundred. So he’s trying to take thirty-three strokes off his game in one year and he asked me to find out your opinion on that.’ Sam Torrance laughed, then slowly contemplated the question. ‘Well, you can tell him from me to dream on.’ Meet John Richardson, a regular bloke who enjoys a round of golf in his spare time. That is until he sets himself the challenge of playing a level par round within a year. With no natural talent, precious little time and no fitness level to speak of, can John pull it off? In spite of Sam Torrance’s scepticism, John remains resolute and so begins an exhausting but exhilarating year of living, breathing, eating and sleeping golf. A rollercoaster ride from beginning to end, “Dream On” is funny and inspirational, and a must for any golfer who dreams of improving their game.

Very inspiring! Loved it Loved this book. I’m an aspiring golfer who has been playing the odd round a year for last 20 years (I’m now 40). After catching a severe virus on holiday in Spain I had to calm down on all my drinking and eating junk exploits so I needed to fill the void with a hobby.Golf was there to fill that void. Since reading this book I’m out playing three times a week where I was shooting 120 rounds to now I’m shooting mid 90s and its rapidly going down.Thank you Mr Richardson , truly…

Every amateur golfer should read this book. All golfers, myself included, suffer with doubts about our own abilities. Generally that’s with good cause, because we suck.But, reading John Richardson’s book about his challenge, and what it took to (spoiler alert!) achieve it, was highly motivational and inspiring. You can and will improve, so long as you have the right temperament, helpful people beside you (as well as Seve and Ben) along with at least a smidgen of ability, and John’s challenge is proof of that.Time…
