The remarkable true story of Roy Vomastek-a 78-year-old humble, small-town doctor with a refreshingly simple outlook on life and golf, a big heart, even bigger belief in luck-and his improbable run in the 2010 Club Championship at one of the greatest courses in the world, Dr. Alister MacKenzie's famed Crystal Downs Country Club.

Co-authors Brian Mulvaney & Jay Lavender, who met by chance on a first tee years ago, partner to share the inspiring story of Roy's humble upbringing from being born in the depression to serving in the U.S. Army then raising his family while running his solo medical practice for 40 years in his home state of Michigan. Photos by Dickie Morris embellish the story with flavor from Roy's life as well as provide a glimpse of Crystal Downs' stunning beauty.

Roy: The 78-Year-Old Champion is a timeless underdog story about a man's love for golf and his lifetime of luck, hard work, miracles, fatherhood and friendship that came together in one magical summer weekend, proving one's never too old to dream big.
