The best golf book in 20 years." --James Dodson
An international bestseller
One for the Memory Banks is a hilarious, and poignant, memoir about Luke Reese's fascination-turned-obsession with golf and about the friendships forged by a mutual love of the great game played on great courses. Part travelogue, part biography, part memoir, One for the Memory Banks captures the give and take of competition and conjures these memories and relationships in technicolor. Part Twain & Hemingway, Luke Reese carries readers on a sweeping journey across the UK and Ireland, introducing them to a fascinating group of characters who share a passion, and reminding them what makes golf so great.
