From the deep South to the PGA Tour, the hilarious and inspiring memoir of golfer Boo Weekley

Ever since his breakout performance at the 2008 Ryder Cup, professional golfer Thomas Brent Weekley, known affectionately as “Boo,” has captivated fans with his eccentric, Southern-fried country humor and incredible path to the top of the PGA Tour.

True Boo is the candid and often hilarious memoir of a larger-than-life athlete, and a wild behind-the-scenes look at life on the PGA Tour. Boo takes readers on a rollicking journey that begins with his humble childhood growing up in Milton, Florida. Called “a nobody from nowhere” and the “Crocodile Dundee of golf,” Boo had to earn respect on the Tour. His game ascended in record time, culminating in his now legendary Ryder Cup victories—going 2-0-1 in his three matches—and his back-to-back Verizon Heritage wins.

With stories of his personal relationships with other players on tour including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, frequent down-home phrases, figures of speech, locker-room language, plenty of “Booisms” and never-before-seen photos, this is a golf book unlike any other.

I AM WHAT I AM

Hey, thanks for picking up this book. You know, it could’ve been titled True Thomas Brent, written by Thomas Brent Weekley. That’s my real name. If it  were, though, you prob­ably wouldn’t have picked it up, ’cause you know me as Boo. I’ve been going by Boo for so long that it almost  doesn’t seem like a nickname anymore. They’ve been calling me that since back in the day in Jay, Florida, population 687, give or take a few, depending on the day. You’ll have to keep reading to ? nd out how I started

Praise for True Boo

"Boo Weekley is one of the true characters in the game of golf. We have become good friends while competing against each other on the PGA Tour. Our personalities are quite different, but we share a love for the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing.  This book offers an insight into Boo the man, and very few things are funnier than Boo being Boo." --Davis Love III
 
"I became a fan of Boo Weekley because of his candid personality as a PGA golfer. It was clear he was from a different mold than most. Through different channels, we eventually struck up a pretty solid friendship. He’s an honest individual and always willing to help others in need. He takes life at face value and enjoys every minute. I figured one day he’d put his crazy story in writing, so here it is. If you’re not a fan yet, you soon will be." 
--Dale Earnhardt Jr.
 
"If Boo could putt better, maybe he'd be able to get bigger celebrities to write quotes for his book. Either way, Git-R-Done and buy this book--it's a great read. Well worth my 20 minutes!!"
--Larry the Cable Guy
