Publisher Description

Have you ever heard of the dirty little secret in the world of golf? It's hard to imagine how that could possibly relate to a first-generation Cuban-American family, their connection to Fidel Castro, and their struggles to survive on the gritty streets of inner-city New York in the 1970s.

This is why Out of the Rough: The Cuban Revolution and its Effect on Golf is NOT your typical memoir.

Eurice E. Rojas, a first-generation Cuban-American, takes listeners on a journey through the tumultuous history of Cuba, his family's escape from communism, and his improbable partnership with the sport of golf. This captivating memoir also reveals personal, never-before-published pictures of a young Fidel Castro and offers a unique perspective on the Cuban Revolution.

But it's not just a history lesson. Rojas shares his own story of growing up in a poor and diverse neighborhood in New York City, and developing an unlikely passion for golf. Although he pursued, unsuccessfully, a career on the professional golf tour, he utilized his golf skill sets to propel himself into a thriving corporate career. Rojas lifts the veil on amateur golfer abuse of the handicap system, and the covert practice of cheating in corporate golf outings and private club tournaments.

Through it all, Out of the Rough serves as a powerful tribute to the tenacity of the human spirit and the profound impact of sports in transforming lives.
