A graduate of Wesleyan University, Bobby Rusher (aka, Bobby Runk) took up the game of golf in order that he might comprehend what people were saying when they discussed golf. His first book, HOW TO LINE UP YOUR FOURTH PUTT, was inspired by the many catastrophic events he and his opponents subsequently experienced, both on and off the golf course. His sequel, WHEN TO REGRIP YOUR BALL RETRIEVER, continues his slightly sarcastic but always fun observations and suggestions on this mystifying game. Indeed, Bobby and his wife bought a home in Pinehurst so that he could more earnestly investigate the banana slice and the mysterious bounce, though they spend most of their time in Connecticut. His next dog will be named Bunker. Bobby is also a musician and has released his debut album, GOOD COMPANY, which was produced by Steely Dan producer, Gary Katz. RunkRock.comReview:
No matter how serious one might take his or her game while actually playing, one thing is for certain: you have to be able to laugh at yourself. Or, as Bobby Rusher suggests, at your partner. Rusher's clever, totally original and completely hilarious books, HOW TO LINE UP YOUR FOURTH PUTT and WHEN TO REGRIP YOUR BALL RETRIEVER, are not your typical golf-tip manuals or swing guides. Heck, even the way these books have been published one-page chapters bound together by a green spiral backing in a up-to-down flip chart format - lets the reader know that this is no ordinary golf book series. Instead, readers and golfer alike will be introduced to a different type of instruction: realism, with a huge dosage of humor. Make no bones about it; these books are hilarious. Never before have I read a golf book regardless of format that had me laughing out loud more often than these. Indeed, I often found myself re-reading a chapter just to laugh again at an incredible presentation of wit mixed with realism. How are Putt and Regrip able to poke fun at the reader without coming off as offensive? Simple: undeniable talent from an incredibly skilled author. Rusher comes off as an everyman ; the type of golfer you or I have played a round with 100 times in our golfing careers. Remember that time when you were hitting 5 on the tee after hitting the ground twice, just before trying to pawn those horrible swings off as practice ? Or how about the time your playing partner ended a hole with a Dunlop after teeing off with a Titleist? I know; you have to recall the time your opponent reported a double bogey despite you watching him hit three balls into the water, right? Well, Rusher certainly remembers these occasions, and I certainly do as well. Putt and Regrip are presented as a hysterical golf tip guide for the average golfer to use whenever he or she decides to undergo 4 hours of torture (i.e., your next round of golf). In the process, Rusher offers the reader a chance to examine his or her own silly idiosyncrasies and habits in blaring clarity that can only be described as refreshing, real, and wholeheartedly honest. For example, chapters described in the debut offering How to Line Up Your Fourth Putt and its sequel, When to Regrip Your Ball Retriever, Rusher touches on topics such as How to behave when you lie 2 on the ladies tee , What to do if they duck on the 5th when you yell fore on the 11th , and The difference between a game that is a problem and a game that is a mess . Needless to say the reader is immediately shown that they are in for a tongue-in-cheek, no-topic-unturned journey of self-discovery, brutally-honest revelations, and unmatched comedy. I have read many different golf books in my career, ranging from instructional booklets to fictional stories. Never before have I ever read a series of books that I could relate to more on every level than the work that Rusher has provided to the golfing world. --ChicagoDuffer.com
Bobby, you are a sick person but a very funny writer. I love your book. I loved your letter. Whatever you write next, I'm buying it. I am mentioning this book whenever and to whomever I can. --Rick Reilly, Sports Illustrated --Rick Reilly, Sports Illustrated
Dear Bobby: I've enjoyed many chuckles from this publication, and it's in my golf bag, ready to go on the next outing. Who knows, maybe it will help to divert the competition! --President George H. W. Bush
