GOLFMANSHIP by Stephen Potter


Email this review


Mr. Potter specializes in The Theory and Practice of Gamesmanship here extended to the green from lie to lie. For example. ""Pre-Game Play"" suggests: ""Days, weeks before there is a chance of an actual contest, start getting at your man. Sow the seed of doubt."" In other words, handicap your handicap. This advice extends to the clubhouse, to dress, to personal relationships (one male/female with a natty little scorecard) to ""Spectatorship"" to ""Rare Ploys and Peculiar Instances"" and it's so boyish British it would drive Jack Nicklaus to scuba-diving. Tee hee.
