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:

"The Walter Mitty touch that gave [Paper Lion] a fine feeling of insanity has vanished [here]....Plimpton is an excellent reporter, with an acute eye and a sharp ear, but his gifts alone cannot overcome the fact that pro golfers ...are an introverted, secretive, solitary bunch. Plimpton looks and listens, but not a single contemporary golfer springs boldly to llife....[The dominant character] is Plimpton himself, but even the self-portrait is incomplete....Measured strictly against the average sports book...[this] could be considered a success. It is literate and intelligent...yet it would be unfair not to measure it against Paper Lion. Plimpton always likes to put himself up against the best."

Dick Schaap, New York Times Book Review, 11/10/68
