About this title

Synopsis:

A rollicking collection highlighting extreme golf from one of the game's freshest voices.

From the Inside Flap:

"I admire anybody who loves the game and writes about it as expertly as Jeff Wallach does. This diverse collection of entertaining glimpses into the wide world of golf its vaunted shrines, out of the way places, and eccentric figures reads like a scorecard that breaks seventy. I enjoyed it immensely."
--James Dodson, author of Final Rounds

DRIVEN TO EXTREMES
Uncommon Tales from Golf s Unmanicured Terrain
Jeff Wallach

Golf is commonly thought of as a game of stately tradition played by well-dressed gentlemen; but there s another side to it, as well.

In Driven to Extremes, Jeff Wallach writes about the "unmanicured terrain" of golf. In this irreverent, funny, and engaging collection, Wallach casts sidelong glances at the game, with an eye for the unusual and the downright strange:

 Follow the "spiritual path" of golf at the Esalen Institute; celebrate good shots with shouts of "yippee skippee" at the prodding of golf guru Chuck Hogan

 Visit Baja s Loreto Golf Club, where the caddie master has no caddies and the practice range closed when someone lost the ball

 Learn how (and why) course architect Greg Nash agreed to build a single hole of Wallach s own design

 Enjoy a reverent look at Oregon s Bandon Dunes and Pacific Dunes Golf Courses, the new twin Meccas of American golf

 Tee off from atop a 2,000-foot granite wall in British Columbia

These and many more adventures in golf await the reader of DRIVEN TO EXTREMES, a rollicking selection of the best writing from one of the freshest voices in the game.
