"And speaking of golf, James Ellroy's early novel CLANDESTINE might not be a sports novel, but there's some golf in it. I think. It's been a long time since I read that one."

Brown's Requiem, his paperback original debut, is the one about golf, where the main protagonist is a caddy who drinks a lot and sometimes sleeps on the greens. Clandestine was his first historical, featuring the first appearance of Dudley Smith.
