Tucker is Back!  Golf and Tucker the Bernese Mountain Dog are Focus of New Book by Theodore Waddell

Theodore Waddell and his wife, Lynn Campion, together with nationally recognized PGA Pro Stoney Brown, have released “Tucker Tees Off,” the third in the series of children’s books featuring Tucker the Bernese Mountain Dog. 


In “Tucker Tees Off,” Tucker is joined on the golf course by other canines and various creatures. Woven throughout are rhymes and poems related  to golf. Tips and quips accompany Tucker in his quest  to finish all 18 holes during the Intermountain golf season. Lynn Campion and Pro Stoney Brown add humorous yet meaningful advice that  every age can treasure . . . or ignore.
