9780007261505: Golf My Own Damn Way

Golf My Own Damn Way is a different golf instructional book, as only John Daly can write. Funny, irreverent, and crude, this book is perfect for the everyday golfer looking to improve his or her game or nongolfers looking for a laugh. With short, quirky chapters that cover everything from improving your swing to John's favorite courses, this book is more than just another golfing manual. You'll also get John's thoughts on the current state of the game and his opinions on other players on the PGA tour.

About the Author:

Professional golfer John Daly is one of the most popular athletes in the world. He has won the PGA's Driving Distance Crown a record-setting eleven times, was named the 1990 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, and went on to win the PGA Championship the following year and the British Open in 1995. Glen Waggoner is a cofounder of the Rotisserie League, a three-time league champion, and editor of all eleven editions of Rotisserie League Baseball. A former columnist for Baseball Weekly, he is also coauthor of Baseball by the Rules and the author of Divots, Shanks, Gimmes, Mulligans, and Chili Dips: A Life in 18 Holes. He was raised in Texas but now lives in New York City. William Dufris began his audio career doing radio plays, audiobooks, film/animation dubbing, and language tapes in London, where he lived for thirteen years. While there, he had the honor of sharing the microphone in a number of BBC Radio plays with Kathleen Turner, Sharon Gless, Stockard Channing, and Helena Bonham-Carter. These experiences led him to cofound two audio production companies: The Story Circle Ltd. and Mind's Eye Productions. He has also acted on stage and television in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. William is the original voice of Bob (and Farmer Pickles/Mr. Beasley/Mr. Sabatini) in the popular children's show Bob the Builder for the United States and Canada (Series 1–9). He produces, directs, acts and engineers for his audio theatre company, Rocky Coast Radio Theatre. He has been nominated nine times as a finalist for the APA's prestigious Audie Award and has garnered twenty-one Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine, which also named him one of the Best Voices at the End of the Century, as well as one of the Best Voices of the Year in 2008 and 2009.

From AudioFile:

“Golf and sex are about the only two things you can have fun doing without being any good at.” PGA champion golfer John Daly opens his “how to” book with this quote from the legendary golfer Jimmy Demaret. It sets the tone for this handy and humorous look at a beloved national pastime. William Dufris slips easily into Daly’s shoes and vernacular, hoists Daly’s bag of balls and tips, and seems to slide into the golf cart. His tone is that of a good old boy and great golfing buddy who advises listeners on banana slices, ripping grips, and drivers, as well as crusades for Bermuda shorts on the PGA tour and a strip-search ban on cell phones and cameras on the course. This is a must for golfers--and for anyone who enjoys hilarity. M.T.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
