Max & The Mulligan

In the sport of golf, a mulligan is an extra stroke allowed after a poor shot, not counted on the scorecard


Life, like golf, rarely gives you second chances.

Max Myburgh grows up privileged and ignorant of the turbulence around him in Apartheid South Africa. Obsessed with being a champion, he pursues his dream of being a pro golfer at all costs.

By the time he is 21, he stands at the precipice of stardom. A champion with the perfect girlfriend and a stellar future, he has everything he has ever wanted. Except the one thing that was always most important. And then, cruelly, it’s all snatched away.

Max has to learn the true meaning of responsibility and maturity, and how actions have consequences, whether intended or not. His road to redemption is set against the backdrop of 1990s South Africa, and historic events in that exciting time of democratic transition will impact Max’s life in ways he could never have imagined.


From the fairways of Scotland to the slopes of Kilimanjaro, Max will learn that making hard choices is the only way to grow. This book, filled with relatable characters and interesting historical moments is for everyone who ever needed to let go of their dreams and start over.
