An intriguing piece of driftwood is fashioned into a driver by a Scottish golf club maker in the mid-eighteen hundreds. Fifty years later he presents the mysterious club to an American pro, Jack Strand, who is visiting the British Isles on an exhibition tour. Back in the States, the hot-headed Strand soon loses the driver in a fit of rage. It eventually falls into the hands of an earnest young caddie, Billy Prescott, who uses it for the next half century before it is lost again at the story's finale. A saga of adventure, family, love and historic golf.
