A very interesting golf book published in 2008 and written by Leigh Montville describes a tale of intrigue, Hollywood glamor and crime. The Mysterious Montague describes how a long ago forgotten player befriended Bing Crosby, Spencer Tracy, Humphrey Bogart, Grantland Rice and Oliver Hardy among others.
The fast paced book describes how Montague’s real and checkered identity and past are brought out. What makes the story truly amazing is Montague’s natural ability and his sense of showmanship.
Makes a nice summer read for the golf fan and some of the stories and incidents are truly amazing.
