Steve Eubanks' book "To Win and Die in Dixie" digs up a juicy murder mystery tale
Golf doesn’t have enough characters these days, so author Steve Eubanks did us all a favor by unearthing one.
His latest book, To Win and Die in Dixie, looks at the wild times and untimely death of J. Douglas Edgar, a Brit who coached Bobby Jones and “invented the modern swing.”
Turns out Edgar had some of the same issues as Tiger Woods … a problem sleeping around with women behind his wife’s back. When his body was found in the road – an apparent victim of a hit-and-run – that’s when the story becomes not a golf story, but a true crime mystery novel that adds excitement and intrigue to the tale. It’s a juicy tale worth reading, something that would scream tabloid headlines in today’s world.
Published by Ballantine Books, it retails for $26.
