Far & Straight
My First Adventure
by Randi Saladin

“There are lots of ups and downs in the life of a golf ball! Let me tell you all about it.” A brand-new, shiny, eager, young golf ball gets a crash course in the game of golf after setting out for the first time with golfer Charlie and his son. Some holes are a breeze, some are doozies. But what we learn is that the game—like life—is all about the journey. It’s about getting back up when you fall and finding happiness along the way. This golf ball’s first adventure is an important message to kids to try their best, especially when learning new skills, and to stay positive no matter what comes their way. Told with humour and excitement, and with a cute twist at the end, Far & Straight is a story for young readers, golfers, and adventurers everywhere.

A fun-loving “kid” at heart, Randi lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She grew up golfing with her grandpa, Charlie, and she learnt how to play from her dad. She now golfs with her husband, mom and dad and many friends. She has learned so much about herself and about life from playing golf, and she is excited to share her story and her passion with young readers. Far & Straight is Randi’s first book.
