Product Description

Writing about golf, says Peter Dobereiner, is like golf itself in that both writer and player are sustained by the dream that next time it will all come right. In Dobereiner's case, his writing, if not his golf, consistently comes right. Golf correspondent for both the Observer and the Guardian for many years, feature writer for the top golf magazines in Britain and America and author of numerous books and film scripts on golf, he is without a doubt the most widely read golf writer in the world. Authoritative, controversial, a master of the humorous digression, he is admired and enjoyed even by those with only a passing interest in the game.
Whether he is writing about the maximum number of clubs a player should carry - 'why 14, why not 10?' - or whether his subject is Jack Nicklaus or Joe Ezar (one of golf's most colourful characters who won a handsome wager that he'd shoot a 64 in the Italian Open and did it!), Dobereiner never fails to delight.
Since he began writing professionally about golf some fifteen years ago, Peter Dobereiner has penned up to three million words on the subject. This anthology of his finest work, illustrating the breadth of his interest and imagination, will be welcomed by all those who, like Dobereiner himself, would sacrifice almost every other pleasure 'for the love of golf.'
