Golf and gambling go together like irons and woods, caddies and bags, feet and Foot-Joys. Nobody knows how to make the side action sizzle like golfers — and nobody knows golf like beloved author and longtime Golf Digest editor Don Wade.

In his new book, the author of the best-selling And Then Jack Said to Arnie . . . series and Talking on Tour presents the greatest true anecdotes and stories about gambling on golf, featuring yarns from today's PGA Tour to tales about celebrity money matches to classic hustling stories from the game's glory days. Ever hear about the time Babe Ruth played Ty Cobb in an epic, 54-hole, three-state match? Or the time JFK resorted to presidential "persuasion" to win a golf bet? And who was it that quipped, when asked about the pressure of playing high stakes golf on the PGA Tour, "This isn't pressure. Real pressure is playing for $10 when you don't have a dime in your pocket"?

Filled with tales about everyone from Ben Hogan to Jack Nicklaus, Wanna Bet? is the ideal gift for any golfer who's ever stood over a four-foot putt to lose his shirt or win all the skins.
