Overview

David Wood's Around the World in 80 Rounds is humorous, insightful, inspiring, and laugh out loud funny. Wood ventures from the southernmost tip of South America to the very top of Norway, and everywhere in between. Along the way he plays the world's most extreme golf courses: the northernmost, the southernmost, the highest, the driest, the hottest, and every strange locale he can find. But this isn't just a book about just golf. It's about travel, and risks, and leaving your comfort zone to pursue your dreams.

About the Author

Author, speaker, and world traveler David Wood is a stand-up comedian with several David Letterman Show appearances under his belt.

Colin Covert of the Minneapolis Star Tribune says David Wood is, "...a comedic brain surgeon. He opens people's minds and tickles their brain."

Gail Malone of the Tulsa Tribune says, "David Wood possesses deft wit and intelligent good humor. The audience loved him!"

His 4,000 plus personal appearances run the gamut from numerous television shows to corporation keynotes.

The book is critically acclaimed. Publisher's Weekly called it," ...highly entertaining."
