About this title


STICKS JOHNSON, BAD LIES & STRANGE BOUNCES is the tale of a single, momentous round of golf, one played like none other has been played in many a long while. It is a tale filled with comic turns, incredible characters and a climax that is both satisfying and surprising. In short, it is a round of golf filled, like Sticks Johnson's life, with bad lies and strange bounces. The match is for the Club Championship. Sticks has endured the shame and frustration of a fifteen-year run of second place finishes, losing every year to the same player, an idiot-savant by the name of Gus Giovanni. Gus has ruled all these years as Club Champion. Sticks knows that he has great skill as a golfer but it is the mental aspects of the game that puts him at a disadvantage. In order to finally put his ghosts to rest, Sticks visits Doctor Eugene Everhardt, perhaps the greatest sports psychologist of his time. While mortified at the thought of actually seeking psychological counseling, Sticks is determined that this time it will be different. This time, he will win the championship. Sticks' progress on the course is followed by an amusing ragtag gallery of misfits, from the cross-dressing Colonel Mack (MacArthur) Sanderson, a former United States Marine Corps Special Operations Officer and Sister Mary Harriet, a Catholic nun with the worst temper at the club who once punched out the club manager over an incorrect lunch bill and was suspended from the club for six months to Moshe Bernstein, an orthodox Jewish rabbi who plays every Sunday with his regular Hassidic foursome in their traditional garb. These, along with many other colorful characters, make the eighteen holes of golf played in this Club Championship the most delightful eighteen holes of golf we have enjoyed in a long, long while.
