KIRKUS REVIEW

The combined experiences of two amateur golfers- plus the anecdotes and memories they have collected -- add up to 73 years of the game. Here in 19 holes are very funny stories (some definitely apocryphal) of all angles of the sport -- the equipment, the language, the customs, the miracles and luck of play, form, pros and caddies, the players themselves (authors included). Stories of lost balls, lessons, the home practice addict, women golfers, golf pests, water hazards, tournament golf, golfer's faults, tall tales, how to quit golf, the authors' golf inventions -- this is the kind of spoofing that players enjoy in recognizing their own foibles and prejudices.
