About this title


From the touring professional to the weekend warrior from television commentators to the golf-watching couch potato, everyone acknowledges the existence of the gods of golf. They govern everything from the hole-in-one to lost balls and disastrous scores. Elation to complete frustration. They reward good play and even sometimes bad. And they do choose who wins and who loses. The gods have existed since 1822 and have presided over the game since-ensuring major victories and preventing a few - as in the cases of Sam Snead never winning the US Open, and Geoff Olgivy winning in 2006.

A Golf God (Masfel) Factoid: Colin Montgomery was supposed to win the 2006 United States Open. Masfel accidentally interfered when Colin changed, for good reason, from using a six iron to using his seven from the middle of the fairway on the last hole, hit the seven iron woefully short and right into thick rough, and eventually ended up with a double bogey. This resulted in a quick conference between his golf god committee and Mikelson's to determine what should happen next. There was a big fight about how many majors Phil should win and how quickly since he had been made to wait so long for his first one. They weren't able to sort it out and Geoff Oglivy was free to play his way to victory.

The Golf Gods: Who They Are, What They Want, and How to Appease Them provides the answers to the game's most important questions: How can I cure my slice; What kind of power do the golf gods really have; Do golf professionals respect the golf gods; Can we prove golf gods exist; Why do golfers talk to golf balls; and many more. This handy guide also gives a concise history of the golf gods, who they are, how many there are, what they do, and will explain why every golfer has a committee assigned to dictate their play-and how to become their friend!
