This is the story of three Grade 5 school kids who decide to form a club to solve mysteries after hearing a career day presentation by a city detective. The story is based in Brockville, Ontario, Canada so includes a little local geography and some Canadian history. An older boy in Grade 6 tries to bully them at every turn but is rehabilitated when accepted as a member of the club. Mary, the first President of the club, calls a meeting to get everything organized. The boys quickly learn how to submit motions (mostly by agreeing to Mary's leadership) and understand the reasons for following Robert's Rules for meetings. The story includes a fishing adventure, an introduction to the game of golf and discussions with a retired sea captain about mysteries of the sea. Finally, the young detectives get an assignment requiring investigation and an undercover lemonade stand.
Put aside the idea of becoming a world-class golfer for a moment. Become a golf guru instead! "You! A Golf Guru!" is not a golf coaching manual. It's a golf experience manual. It tees up ideas, thoughts and perspectives that will improve your approach to the game and boost your enjoyment of the sport. Illustrated by memorable and humorous anecdotes that golfers and some non-golfing partners will relate to, the book examines key aspects of the game, both on and off the course. See how the lessons learned can also help in the other, not-so-important aspects of your life such as your marriage, your kids and your job - providing all the justification you'll ever need to play even more. Once you start to walk off the 18th more regularly with a smile on your face, you'll be well on your way to golfing enlightenment. Others will notice the change. They will buy you drinks in the clubhouse, in the hope that you will pass on your secret. And you will share the lessons you have learned, for you are a golf guru and that's what gurus do. Besides, you like free drinks.
