Mike Southern

Biography

Author of Ruthless Putting, a book on turning your existing putting stroke into a scoring machine, and editor of Classic Adventure Stories: Swashbucklers, a collection of classic sword-fighting novels. I've also done some writing for Golfsmith.com.

I'm a writer, cartoonist, graphic artist & self-publisher who's played in a few local pro golf tournaments. The challenge of learning new things really appeals to me. And I don't believe age should ever keep you from chasing your dreams.
