Dan Waintrup never played the US Open and he never made it onto the World Tour. His career flourished in high school and college, but landed him in the world of a country club teaching pro - junior clinics with bratty adolescents, lessons with executive studs of Fortune 500 companies, and couples' tournaments, which ended marriages. His teaching exploits provide the backdrop for this humorous memoir that reveals how a rabbi's son from Philadelphia with a hankering for Tastykakes chose this line of work and devastated his parents, had a photo op with The Donald, ran his car into a tree, found the woman of his dreams and got an MBA without learning how to use a computer. One of Dan's many gifts is his ability to laugh at himself and, in turn, allow others to have a laugh at his expense.
Dan Waintrup was born in Abington, Pennsylvania and it was there that he started playing tennis when he was 15 years old. He attended and played on the varsity squad at Temple University before becoming a country club pro in New England. He currently works at an investment firm in Boston and resides in Brookline, Massachusetts with his wife, Linda. It's Not My Fault is his first book.
