THE GOLFER'S MISCELLANY by Percy -- Ed. Huggins


Email this review


Just about the coldest golf course probably is the self-appointed round of one Munro Sievwright who pursued his red golf balls with white-hot determination at an Antarctic Survey Base; a Mr. Chatten of Indiana had a record sixteen putts for an eighteen hole round; and in June 1937 one Lady Eddis of Britain lifted a ball out of casual water to have it later discovered in the folds of her jumper. And so on, through oddments of play, astonishing records and wagers, natural and mechanical accidents, prestigious-to-bizarre matches and many items surrounding the accomplishment of A Hole in One. All amplified with an introduction by George Plimpton and drawings by Bob Bugg.
