Description
"Golf was invented by a bunch of bored Scottish sheepherders," quips Bill Pennington, author of the "On Par" column for the New York Times, who has traveled the globe in search of those elusive truths that will improve anyone's game. In order to write this droll but informative guide, Pennington has consulted the world's leading golf instructors as well as countless caddies and groundskeepers, not to mention psychiatrists, physicists, economists, and zen masters. Among the topics under discussion are Being a Good Golf Partner; Nine Places Every Golfer Should Play; and Shanks, Choking, and Other Tales of the Dark Side.

"A hilarious, informative primer on the essentials of golf, schooling novices or the professional bewitched by mastering the links…. A chapter on golf-speak will tickle readers with a sampling of the colorful jargon of golf pros.… With a few chuckles and basic instruction, Pennington's book effectively consolidates the wealth of knowledge from his beloved column, while delighting those who are perplexed by the puzzle that is the sport of golf."—Publishers Weekly
