An Australian-born journalist and certifiable golf nut takes an amused and amusing look at how golf is really played - t by superhuman pros or at high-toned country clubs but by you and me and millions like us around the world. We don't play for rich prizes or high-prestige trophies. We play each other for tiny stakes but priceless bragging rights. We cheat by mutual consent, igre rules that are unfair or just plain stupid, needle each other without mercy and lose our tempers without shame or regret. And although we're obsessed with getting better, we probably never will.
Russell Felton is a certifiable golf nut and an Australian-born journalist who for reasons he can't quite explain lives in Toronto, Canada, where the golf season lasts about five months. He wrote this book in the winter.
