Reviews

"I wouldn't have thought that it was possible to weave together two totally different subjects, but somehow he manages to do it in an entertaining and educational way. His personal and familial anecdotes are hard to believe, even though we know they are true. As an avid golfer who has been to a few corporate outings over the years, I've now learned that I'm not a bad golfer, just an honest one. Keep hitting them straight and keep entertaining us."

-Dr. Steve Fallek, Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon

"Compelling, entertaining, and inspiring! The personal and historical details the author shares about his father's unique relationship with Fidel Castro and their harrowing escape from Cuba are insightful and captivating. It is also an amazing story of how a kid from New York City develops an improbable relationship with the sport of golf, ultimately creating a successful corporate golfing career that is revealing, funny, and thought-provoking. Out of the Rough is a testament to the human journey and an absolutely fascinating read for golfers and the historically curious."

"Eurice Rojas explodes on the literary scene with his brilliantly written Out of the Rough: The Cuban Revolution and its Effect on Golf. He didn't escape from 111th Street in New York City, he evolved because of his experiences in that harsh environment. Rojas' description of growing up a Cuban refugee and his family's near-tragic escape adds to his remarkably captivating explanation of Fidel Castro's rise to power. His dissection of the amateur golf world takes the reader on a roller coaster ride which is both entertaining and unforgettable."
