On this centennial anniversary of Francis Ouimet's stunning U.S.Open victory, this story is arguably the greatest underdog triumph in sports. If you consider all of the elements that make for a great sports legend - David vs. Goliath, local kid makes good, a dramatic narrative, thrilling moments, a transcendent feat - this is the ultimate feel-good tale. A century ago a little-known amateur, 20-year-old Francis Ouimet who lived across the street from The Country Club in Brookline, MA, joined forces with his caddy, 10-year-old Eddie Lowery who stood only four feet tall. Together and against all odds they attempted to pull off the impossible. Francis And Eddie is a reminder to children that anything is possible. It reads like a fairy tale. This book is an inspiration to all.
