Experienced writer with a number of successful books to his credit. Golf is one of the most popular games in the world. That is a strange thing to say, since almost all serious golfers actually have a love-hate relationship with it. A good round can bring great joy and satisfaction, while a bad round can end in depression, a binge in the bar, arguments with one's partner and the need for prompt evasive action by the family cat. Although this book is written in a light-hearted manner, it contains a wealth of information about every aspect of the game of golf. Learn about its long and speckled history and some of the quirky characters who have graced the links. It also has an instructional component. Armed with this you can eliminate some of the worst shots from your game. Failing that you will find an excellent section on the gentle art of gamesmanship.
