Book Description Allen & Unwin, Australia, 1998. Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 169 pages. Every round of golf is a short story. It has a beginning, middle and end; obstacles are overcome, disasters experienced, triumphs achieved. Golf turns mild men and women into raging maniacs; wild, restless spirits into cold, calculating machines; adventurous optimists into gloom merchants; pessimists into buoyant risk-takers. Golf courses provide a variety of settings for these stories to be played out - howling wind, burning sun, driving rain or gentle mist; soothing breezes and shady glades. When a writer plays golf you can be sure that he or she (P.G. Wodehouse, Agatha Christie, John Updike) will write about it, usually humorously. Peter Corris has joined their ranks and, like them, has demonstrated that golf holds a comic mirror up to life like no other sport. Table of Contents: THE FRONT NINE The man who tried to give up golf; Sand; The horror hole; Cheating; Hole-in-one; The trip; The ghost; Tips; Handicapped. THE BACK NINE - The battle of the sexists; Bad manners; Water; Meeting Greg Norman; The great white groper; The operation; Putting; The grip; The Pro-Am. There is name in the 5th page. Size: 12mo.
