Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
"Plimpton will interest even the man who can't tell a pitching wedge from a putter.... This is really a book about a kind of madness with rules, and anyone can appreciate the appeal of that." -Newsweek

THE BOGEY MAN remains arguably the funniest book on golf ever written.
George Plimpton here joins the pro golf circuit for a month of self-imposed torture in the name of bringing professional sport to the sphere of the average man. Arnold Palmer, Dow Finsterwald, Wlater Hagan, and others populate this intriguing, classic, candid view from the first tee.


Review:
What happens when a weekend athlete - of average skill at best - joins the professional golf circuit? George Plimpton, who had earlier tried out for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (in Paper Lion) and got a chance to pitch to a team of major-league all-stars in Yankee Stadium (in Out of My League), spent a month of self-imposed torture on the tour -meeting amateurs, pros, caddies, officials fans, and hangers-on. In The Bogey Man we find golf legends, adventurers, stroke-saving theories, superstitions, and other golfing lore, and best of all, Plimpton's thoughts and experiences - frustrating, humbling, and, sometimes, thrilling - from the first tee to the last green. This intriguing classic which remains one of the wittiest books ever written on golf, features Arnold Palmer, Dow Finsterwald, Walter Hagan, and many other golf greats and eccentrics, all doing what they do best.
