On a cold December night in a rusted-over Pennsylvania nowhere town, the Class of 2003 football team reunites at their high school to watch the next generation win the state championship. Partying behind the bleachers, begging the glory days to return, the old players are haunted by their abusive coach who seemed to predict their dead-end futures.

"THE GREENS is a must-read satirical period comedy thanks to its extremely vivid characters, excellent dialogue, and consistent laughs that come within a compelling story about the formation of the world's first golf club for women at the renowned St. Andrews in Scotland."
"An electric look at St. Andrews and golf, THE GREENS packs a punch through coarse, hilarious, hard-charging, and talented female characters and a historical setting."
