The obsessive book about the obsessive game, and more fun to read than a green at Ballybunion

The obsessive book about the obsessive game, and more fun to read than a green at Ballybunion. It’s all here, including history: oldest courses, top 5 money-winners at 10-year intervals, the importance of James II of Scotland. Colorful characters, like the hustler who would bet you that he could roll out of bed in the morning and make a 40-foot putt on his first try, and his secret for doing it every time. Odd rules: Did you know youmay take a free drop from a fireant hill but not from poison ivy?

Gonna be honest, I didn't read it. But it made for a fantastic gift! My dad was thrilled. He thought it was hilarious

Bought this as a gift for a friend who is an avid golfer and he loves it!

Got these as gifts for two golfers in the family. Both were pleased. One had seen it in the clubhouse at a resort but was glad to have his own copy.

We bought this for our golf-fanatic brother-in-law, and he was delighted with it! We have not personally read the book, but in scanning it, thought it looked really good.

I bought this for the guy who golfs. He thought it had a lot of relevant information in an easy to digest format.

After carefully reading reviews of this book I ordered it for my golf-crazed husband. I am sure he will enjoy this stocking-stuffer at Christmas because I have read a few excerpts myself, and I enjoyed them. The book arrived in good condition and in a timely fashion. I would purchase from this vendor again.

Totally unorganized; totally fun! Pick it up and turn to any page and I guarantee you will find yourself reading it for the next 15-30 minutes.
This book has lots of interesting facts and information about golf. It can be read in any number of sessions without losing track of what the book is about.
