Professional golfer Roy Gilbert wakes, dazed and defenseless, in the mangrove swamp of the Everglades. Across the bay hangs the wreckage of the small Cessna his friend John piloted on their sightseeing trip. Roy has no memory of the crash, and John is nowhere to be found.
Roy escapes the swamp and rejoins the tour, but danger follows. Why did the plane crash? Who is chasing him? Where is John? Who can he trust? The answers lead Roy on a perilous journey to a breathtaking climax.In the style of Dick Francis, Power Fade brings mystery and suspense to the high-profile world of professional golf.
Changing careers is a challenging proposition. Do it at age 50 and your family might want your head examined. But then to choose the PGA TOUR's Champions Tour as your next profession-well...now inkblots and a shrink's couch are definitely in play.
Welcome to Keith Gockenbach's world. A respected, established executive, who traded his wingtips and fancy pens for softspikes and little pencils, shares his experiences and insights as he chases his dream to become a player on professional golf's premier stage.
