More Press Reviews For Journey Through The Links
Worley's narrative is candid, yet he clarifies his opinions on the golf courses , not shying away from aspects which pleased ,bugged or mystified him.
The physical appearance of Journey through the Links is impressive - clearly a significant investment has been made.
On a personal note I found Worley's deference to the Welsh links, both famous and unheralded, as the highlight of the publication.
Worley has traipsed untold miles of coastline and fashioned a good story along the way.
