Champion: A four handicapper's incredible quest to be Club Champion
Champion: A four handicapper's incredible quest to be Club Champion
by Stuart F. Bendoris
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite a winning putt, 27 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the book I thought it would be. Not a book on how a 4 handicapper improved his golf game to win his club championship but rather a recount of how his matches went that year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woks great; smells awful!!, 11 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very effective repellent as used last month in Antigua, don't be put off by the smell (like all medicines if it smells/tastes bad it must be good) and kept away mosquitoes and sand flies. As an earlier reviewer says it does come by snail mail at least 2 weeks so order well in advance.


The Cameo Conspiracy: A Shocking True Story of Murder and Injustice
The Cameo Conspiracy: A Shocking True Story of Murder and Injustice
by George Skelly
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Truth, stranger than fiction, 24 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating book on a miscarriage of justice. Its obvious to the layman that George Kelly was completely innocent of what was a terrible crime. It leaves you wondering how many more of these miscarriages remain uncovered.

It would have been interesting if there had been more information on the recent appeal process via the CCRC which resulted in the conviction being quashed. There is also the suggestion in the book of a fall out between the author and the relatives of George Kelly and the reader is left wondering about the circumstances of this. Perhaps this will be addressed in a later edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book about the "shot" and much more, 10 Aug. 2012
You would have thought that the stories about Bobby Jones would have been told by now. Not so this book by local Doctor Steven Reid provides a new slant on the Open Championship of 1926 at Royal Lytham. Not only does is provide insights into the main protagonists but also includes a wealth of interesting information about the course at the time, the Club and the Claret Jug. Its also covers the famous shot at the 17th hole and the efforts to establish exactly where it was played from. An excellent read for those wanting to a know a little more that just the results of the Championship.

1.0 out of 5 stars A very disappointing purchase., 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Classic Palmer (Hardcover)
Having purchased and enjoyed many of John Feinstein's previous books around golf (i.e. A Good Walk Spoiled) I was expecting something much better along the lines of James Dobson's Ben Hogan biography. No, this is a small book (A5 size) containing many photographs but little in the way of text. Much of the information is only a repeat of stories available elsewhere. Perhaps I should have realised this from the price. There are and will be many better books about the legend that is Arnold Palmer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short on facts, 13 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Four Days in July (Hardcover)
This is a well written account of a dramatic Open Championship where to golf fans the "wrong" man won (apologies to Stewart Cink). However it is spoilt bay the author's disregard for facts. To give one example Tom Watson actually only won the US Open once not twice, this error is repeated at least twice in this edition. With the Internet so avaialable these sort of errors reflect badly on the author/publisher. It will be interesting to see if they are corrected in a subsequent edition. Don't let this stop you reading the book but errors like this make you wonder what else might not be correct!

Dave Stockton's Putt to Win: Secrets For Mastering the Other Game of Golf
by Dave Stockton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book but.., 6 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... why all the references to Taylor Made putters? Whilst these are good putters so are many other manufacturers' products.What is obvously an over zealous allegiance to a sponsor does spoil what is a very readable and thought provoking book on "the game within a game". i would also agree with other reviews in that the illustrations could be better. Don't let this stop you reading the book though
