Contest: Going for the Green Book Give Away

g4g paper back coverOkay, nothing in life is truly free, so it won’t be the case here either. However, I’m not going to ask a lot of my readers. The paper back of my book, Going for the Green: On the Links with Canada’s Business and Political Elite, is out now, with a new cover, a nice quote from Mike Weir  on the cover and a new postscript. Oh, and tons of good reading as well.

I’ve got five signed copies to give away — and one of those lucky winners will get to join me for a round of golf in the GTA upcoming.

Anyway, all you have to do is  answer to this question: In the opening chapter of Going for the Green I caddied at the Canadian Open at Angus Glen for Jim Kinnear, the CEO of Pengrowth and Jim Balsillie, the co-CEO of Research in Motion. Who was the PGA Tour pro in our group? Hint: He won the tournament that year.

Send all responses to me at  with the subject “G4G Book Contest.”

Best of luck. I’ll announce the winner on May 8.
