9781412713887: Shaped Wit and Wisdom Golf

No game is quite like golf. For starters, no game lends itself to both deep philosophical thinking and hilarious one-liners the way golf does. And whether you have five minutes or five hours to spend, The Wit and Wisdom of Golf can fill it with entertainment. Compiled and written by three highly respected golf writers, The Wit and Wisdom of Golf is 168 pages of insightful thinking on the grand old game. Nine chapters cover every bounce, lie and angle. Here is a sampling of the chapters:

  • The Joys of Golf. Stories and quips that get at the essence of the game, like George Low's bon mot, "Give me a millionaire with a fast backswing and I can have a very enjoyable afternoon."
  • The Players. Curious and mirthful stories, such as how the great woman golfer Mickey Wright got a D in golf at Stanford, and how George Archer said he wasn't sure if he qualified for the Senior Tour because "my knee's only a few months old, my back's 17 years old and I recently got a new hip. I might be too young."
  • Courses, the Mental Game and Professional Advice. Including Gene Sarazen's suggestion that the worst thing a player can do when practicing is set the ball up in a perfect lie each time.

The Wit and Wisdom of Golf is a beautifully illustrated and easy-to-read stroll through nearly a thousand of the smartest and funniest things ever said about the game of golf. For you or the avid golfer on your gift list, The Wit and Wisdom of Golf is like a perfect lie and a clear shot to the pin.
