Devon's Tom Coyne Has Played More
Rounds of Golf than Anyone you Know ...
Visit www.tomcoyne.com

Coyne, 43, grew up in Media; he was the youngest of five
children and currently resides in Devon, PA. He attended
Archmere Academy in Wilmington, DE, and graduated from
the University of Notre Dame. When he is not chasing around
the little white ball, he is a professor of creative writing at Saint
Joseph's University and Director of the Writing Studies Program,
having earned his tenure in 2017. Coyne loves writing and
thrives on teaching it. But he really loves golf-and his books
show it. "The fact that you can never get it right is probably why
I love the game; there is always the next hole, the next round,
the next day. It's the chance to say to yourself, Tomorrow, I'm
not going to three-putt that hole. It's an elusive chase. It's a total
obsession."
In Tom Coyne's assessment, he is becoming a quicker
researcher and a more efficient golfer. It took him 500 days
to amass the content needed for his first book, 2006's Paper
Tiger. He needed only four months to get it all done for A
Course Called Ireland. And the travel and investigation for his
most recent effort, A Course Called Scotland, required just two
months. It is safe to say that Coyne has played more golf than
anybody you know. In Scotland, he played 111 rounds in 57
days. He also covered 1,100 miles on foot while hitting every
course in Ireland.
The idea behind 2009's A Course Called Ireland: A Long
Walk in Search of a Country, a Pint and the Next Tee, sprung
from previous golf trips to the country with his father and
brothers, along with his "100-percent Irish" blood. While
contemplating a subsequent trip to Ireland, he noticed that the
whole country looked like one big course. So he decided to
traverse the Emerald Isle for four months and to play every
layout he could.
With his new book, A Course Called Scotland: Searching
the Home of Golf for the Secret to its Game, Coyne has
continued a love affair with golf that began when he was a child
and has bloomed into more than just a typical infatuation with the
game, its countless frustrations and occasional triumphs. Since
Scotland is the birthplace of golf, it made sense to sample its
wide range of links offerings. In searching for the secrets of golf,
"I had to go everywhere - and I went everywhere." It was a tight
timeframe, because his last round was a qualifier for the British
Open. He did not make the field, and he is not overly eager to
embark on his next journey-though he has begun considering
potential topics. "The biggest hole in my resume is my own

country," he says. "I can envision myself doing something here.
But some of my friends want to go to New Zealand, so, who
knows?"
