Many people watched Clarkston native Joel Dahmen’s golf game closely as he earned a spot on the 2016 PGA Golf tour.In “Walking with Tigers,” retired Lewiston businessman John Black tells the story of that year for Dahmen and his caddy, Lewiston native Geno Bonnalie. Black will sign copies of the book today, Friday and Saturday in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley.
Black called Dahmen’s rise on the pro circuit “a real-life Rocky story” in a December interview with the Lewiston Tribune. The odds were stacked against the pair, and the book details how they continued to advance, despite being outsiders and getting the rookie treatment. Their friendship is the backbone of the story. Black spoke to them by phone throughout the season.
He will sign copies of the book from:
4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the Lewiston Golf and Country Club, 3985 Country Club Dr.
2 to 4 p.m. Friday at And Books Too, 918 Sixth St., Clarkston
3 to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Clarkston Golf and Country Club, 1676 Elm St.
