Book Description

17 July 2006
This story about golf takes place in 16th Century Scotland and is inspired by the earliest historical records about "the greatest game". In it Ian MacPherson, a dirt poor farmer and so-so golfer, decides he must win his town's annual golfing tournament or face financial ruin. Galbraith, the Scottish Laird who rules the area, has financial problems of his own and also has designs on the tournament. He hires a golfing "ringer" from Edinburgh, Black Bart, to try and steal the tournament from the locals. Along with fascinating descriptions about early golf, there is plenty of earthy humor, cruel deception and local Scottish color. The author is a descendant of the MacPherson clan and swears at least some of what happens is fact, passed down to him from family stories

5.0 out of 5 stars What a story!! 1 July 2006
By N.J. Good - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Mr. MacPherson and the editors of this book, Gary Goodman and Mark Ziegler, have turned the usually "stuffy" subject of golf on its head.

Easily one of the most humorous and refreshing stories I have read in quite some time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest book I have read 24 Jun 2009
By David A. Christ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I don't think I have ever laughed out loud so many times while reading any other book. This will become a golf classic.
