Product Description


With charm, wit, and wisdom, golf writers write to help golfers at all levels to hack through the vines of frustration and confusion. Writers cover the great players in their pressure-packed struggles. This is a treasure chest of golf stories from well-known authors who are not synonymous with the game of golf - among them A. A. Milne, John Updike, Ian Fleming, P. G. Wodehouse and Art Buchwald - and tips and insights from those who have played the game, including Bobby Jones, Sam Snead, Ben Crenshaw, and Roger Maltbie.

Like A Hole in One, a Wonderful Surprise 16 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I ran across this book in my pro shop and was mindlessly thumbing through it because the message on the flap unabashedly said it was copied after the Harvey Penick books. I thought that was an odd thing to say, but then the first story in the book is by Bud Shrake, co-author of the great Penick books. I could not put this "chapbook" down. There is one great golf story after another. Stories you will memorize, some previously published, some new. There also are a lot of neat surprises.. Some of the stories are hilarious. There are two priceless pieces by Dan Jenkins, my favorite golf author. I reccommend this wonderful book to anyone who loves the game, every aspect of it. I come from a big family of golfers --- this is an elegant little book, attractively priced, and it will take care of about half of my Christmas shopping this year . A brilliant idea, just when I thought every golf book conceiveble had been written.. The title says this is "The First Chapbook for Golfers." I do hope this means there will be a seond. If there is a flaw in the first one I could not find it.
