Doug Evans Announces Publication of Debut Novel

"Finding Fairways and Dreams: Conversations between the Third Green and the Fourth Tee" (published by Balboa Press AU), a new sports novel by Doug Evans, explores personal development through the power of having a caddy figure to serve as a mentor, guide, protector, psychologist, manager and friend.

"We can all improve our performances and the enjoyment of our lives by changing our state of mind using the guidance of a caddy figure," Evans declares.

Narrated by a friend of the main character, Davey Neilson, "Finding Fairways and Dreams" shows how Davey, a caddy, inspires and enriches the lives of those around him. At times throughout the various stories it seems that Davey is able to influence other people and their personal development almost supernaturally. Late in the book, the novel reveals a link between Dave and the narrator's great uncle, Doug Nanfield, who was executed in WWII.

"The task of working your way through a round of golf and negotiating the challenges thrown up is comparable to navigating our way through life and its different stages," explains Evans. "What we learn about ourselves on the course and in our lives are interchangeable and what we apply from that knowledge with the welcome assistance of a caddy figure can make us a better player and a happier person living a more fulfilled life."
