The characters have been embellished a little, Mr. Hollingsworth said.

Especially Peachy.
"He's identifiable to people who know him, the belief system, attitude and dialogue are the same as (movie character) Fletch," Hollingsworth said. "He was the clown and the wild man growing up."
Flatbellies is a name given to the young golfers by a group of middle-age duffers who played at the same country club - La Viento Golf and Country Club in the book.
"They resented us because we beat them," said Hollingsworth, who is Kyle "Chipper" DeHart in the book - a nod to his proficiency around the green.
Hollingsworth spent four years writing the book, another year revising and cutting more than 50 pages out of it, then was rejected - sight unseen, he said - by 47 publishing companies.
Once Hollingsworth found Sleeping Bear Press, he sent copies of the manuscript to his friends.
...
Overall the story is fiction, but many of the little individual vignettes really did happen, Hollingsworth said. For example, the Lettermans' club initiation has a full chapter in the book.
"You had to box," he said. "We were golfers boxing to get our letters. We all had to box somebody."
The book is the first work of fiction by Hollingsworth, who is the director of the Women's Center at Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City. In August , he released The Truth About Breast Cancer Risk Assessment - a more clinical effort - as Alan B. Hollingsworth, M.D.
For Flatbellies he left off the M.D.
"We figured people may think it was an exercise book," he said.
...
"Jay says to Chipper," Hollingsworth said, "If you do become a writer would you put us all in a book one day?"'

"Those false-positive rates are higher in conventional breast MRI systems than in dedicated breast MRI units," said Alan Hollingsworth, MD, Medical Director, breast surgeon at Mercy Women's Center at Mercy Health Center, Oklahoma City, OK.

In a recent multi-center trial,8 managed by ACR Image Metrix (the American College of Radiology's clinical research organization), Dr. Hollingsworth and other researchers found that dedicated breast MR systems led to better diagnostic performance for sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value, positive predictive value, and area under the receiver operating characteristic curve than what has been reported for breast MR imaging on conventional breast MRI systems.
"False-positive rates from previously reported trials using whole-body breast MRI have typically been between 30% to 50%. The dedicated breast MRI system offers a significant improvement in performance," noted Dr. Hollingsworth.
