Book - The Random History Of Golf: Embarrassing Shanks & Outrageous Slices
From the 15th century royal ban to a game stopped for seven months because of rain, this is the story of golf as it's never been told before!
- Any golfers who have pined for their putters, waxed lyrical about their sand wedge, or fondled a five iron will appreciate this fun compilation of sports reports, spoof correspondence, and reminiscences from pros, caddies, playing partners, and armchair pundits.
- With humorous illustrations on every page, it captures the comedy, controversy, and curious courses that are all part of the game.
- Among the stories it tells: Mary Queen of Scots playing a round just after her husband got killed; the origin of the term “birdie”; champion Lee Trevino’s prank with a rubber snake; and a fly-on-the-wall documentary that embarrassed an upscale golf club so badly that the entire board resigned.
