  • "Well-written and entertaining…will strike a chord with many who either still long to hit the same benchmark of respectability, or stage longed to do so"

    Golf Monthly
  • "Opens a window on the world of amateur golfing to hugely enjoyable effect...engaging and hugely enjoyable... He's a likable and sympathetic guide to a world that can be confusing to anyone who can't differentiate between an eagle and a bogey"

    Observer
  • "Cracking the magical 80 mark is no mean feat, but our author applies himself enthusiastically to the task at hand, gradually building reader empathy… Does he succeed? Ah, that would be telling, but Breaking 80 is worth reading to find out"

    Birmingham Post
  • "For the good amateur golfer the ultimate aim is to break 80... It’s every intermediate golfer’s dream, and now there is a wonderfully crisp, charming and moving book for you...it is Godwin’s earnest and relentless, though always engaging, pursuit of his goal that people will appreciate, recognise and warm to... Read it and enjoy"
