Golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. has said of the book, “With Mr. Wizard, Jeff Wallach joins the likes of Michael Murphy, John Updike, and P.G. Wodehouse in writing wonderfully about golf in his fiction. It’s a great read for anyone who loves golf and a good mystery. Family relationships swerve and dip like a double-breaking downhill putt but in the end everything drops into place with that pleasing sound of a golf ball falling into the cup. Not since Golf in the Kingdom has a fiction writer captured the mystical, bonding qualities of our game— and the mysteries of the human heart. Wallach’s book brings to mind a rollicking round played with quirky, hilarious companions who love the game, and each other.”
