Voice actor Scott Pollak performs this sparkling memoir with humor and optimism, highlighting the ups and downs of Bowden’s life with equal measures of respect and precision. This heartwarming audiobook has much to say about life, and golf, and the space where the two meet.
Though Bowden was a white child of considerable privilege and Bennett was an older black gentleman of more modest means, the two formed an unusual bond. It was Bennett who introduced Bowden to the game of golf, a sport that would one day earn him a Division 1 golf scholarship and lead him to the final stage of a British Open qualifier. But it was the lessons Bennett taught the young Bowden off the course that had their profoundest impact on his life. Through Freddie and his particular brand of homespun wisdom, the author learned invaluable lessons about personal responsibility, hard work, and respect for others regardless of age, race or religion. He also learned that there's much more to life than just playing golf.
Like the best sellers Tuesdays with Morrie and Seasons of Life before it, Freddie & Me is a heartwarming tale of two unlikely friends and their uncommon bond forged through sport.

Favorite book of all time.
Excellent story!! I had a chance to meet Tripp at a Member/Guest a few years back when he was promoting the book. I read it then and just listened to it again. Loved it again, maybe more with the brilliant narrator. If you love golf or just great stories, get this.
