The Feathery plot centers around a unique type of golf ball used during a record match at St. Andrews, Scotland in 1849. The story is set in San Diego, London and New York, as well as in ancient and modern Scotland. The game of golf blends with mystery and suspense surrounding an obsession so strong by some to own this valuable antique feathery golf ball that they'll commit murder to satisfy it. A sub-plot involves an attempt by a gambling interest to fix the British Open when the leading player's caddie is abducted to force his withdrawal.

In THE FEATHERY by BILL FLYNN, I learned more about the game of Golf than I would have expected. Many years ago, a lawyer friend of mine, Leighton H. Coleman, Senior Partner in the law firm of David, Polk & Wardwell (NYC) invited me to his club in Stony Brook, Long Island. I was given a set of clubs and Pate Coleman gave me instructions as we played nine holes. I was miserable, both as a student, and mentally. I could not see the satisfaction golfers derived from hitting a little ball with a club, trying to get it into a little hole in the ground. Pate Coleman spoke of his love of the game and that he played every year at St. Andrews in Scotland.

In THE FEATHERY, Author BILL FLYNN has given his readers an extraordinary lesson in the history of the game and those who master it. In the past few years I have occasionaly watched in awe as Tiger Woods made it look so easy. Now, having read THE FEATHERY, I have found a whole new appreciation and facination with the game.

Author BILL FLYNN has written an exciting novel, mixing the history of Golf, those dedicated to it and those who are slaves of it, with a well crafted plot of an historic ball, made in Scotland and thought to be lost forever. Young SCOTT BECKMAN lost his father at age 14, a Helicopter pilot killed in Iraq. He and his best friend, MATT KEMP are caught shoplifting in a sports store. A Detective decides to use a different approach than dumping the boys into Juvenile Hall. He hooks them up with a friend, a successful businessman addicted to Golf, as Scott's father was. Soon he is being taught by SANDY McNAIR, a renowned Golf Pro. Soon, Scott advanced from being a well respected Caddie to being a Golfer headed for the pros. His mentor, Sandy McNair passes away and leaves his entire worldly possessions to Scott. Inherited along with many other Golfing Antiques, is a golf ball made of feathers and bound with leather. Scott has been off his game and not making enough money to stay on the U. S. Tour. The idea of selling the Antiques are suggested by Matt, his Caddie and best friend.

An Italian golf memorabillia collector, introduced by a friend's cousin makes an offer of $100,000.00. Scott is skeptical and decides to get a second opinion. The next day he has the antiques appraised and finds the ball alone is worth at least a million dollars. He decides to sell them all at auction. That's when the plot thickens. A murder in New York City, an attempted murder and theft of the Feathery Ball and a Bronze statue of a nude lady golfer is stolen in London. Scott's game improves and he is earning a substantial sum of money. He decides not to sell the Feathery Ball, and withdraws it from auction.

There are many twists and turns in this finely tuned novel that you will not put this book down. It has romance, sex, murder and mystery that will keep you reading to the last line.

This is the third novel I have read by Author BILL FLYNN, and the third I must award FIVE STARS and my appreciation. I will be looking for his next novel with anticipation of a solid and enjoyable read.

We all know that golf is more than a sport in the UK - For a golfer aficionados, a pilgrimage to St. Andrews to play golf is a dream. For those of us who will never probably make it to St. Andrews, we live vicariously by watching the British Open.
Bill Flynn's excellent The Feathery deals with a wonderful piece of golf history - golf balls were created with packed feathers encased by leather and sewn tightly. The clubs were hand crafted and without the benefit of computer technology, were amazingly accurate.
The Feathery showcases a golf ball 'feathery' that was made in 1849 when Hugh McNair won the Open with a record breaking 78, which in modern terms would be a profession player making a score in the 50's - quite an accomplishment for a leather ball stuffed with feathers!
Needless to say, memorabilia from the early days is something grabbed up by collectors.
Except for the record breaking feathery that Hugh McNair used.
Scott Beckman always loved the game of golf. His best friend, Matt Kemp, also has the same passion. Scott's mother resented the game because it took her husband away playing golf while she wanted the family to play a more 'civilized' game of tennis - When her husband dies in Iraq, Scott and Matt start getting in trouble. A nice cop takes them to a man, Sandy McNair, (does McNair sound familiar?) who has mentored young boys who had wavered off the path and helped them with discipline and golf. Both boys mature and they become fine golfers and professionals.
When Sandy dies he bequeaths to Scott all of his golf memorabilia - including a rare golf statue and the famous feathery that Sandy's greatgrandfather used to smash the record at St. Andrews! It is literally priceless!
So starts the intrigue when Scott, a struggling pro player decides to auction the memorabilia off so he can have money to survive the pro curcuit until he gets his 'pro legs' and makes money. Scott changes his mind about the feathery and the statue and this starts the action that deal with attempts to steal the feathery, murder and kidnapping.
It also features exciting play details about the British Open and the Masters. You'll feel you are playing next to Scott right there amid the wind and rain St. Andrews is famous for -
Flynn's writing is fluid, crisp and fun. If you weren't a golf fan before, you will be after reading this book.
If you are a terrible golfer like me, you may find yourself mentally playing and being part of the action.
A fun read for all readers.
