Whole-In-One Golf Book

Golf is surely intrusive in one's life. For me the intrusion has become a passion.

Feeling the urge to give my friends some of the stories that I have heard, read, and seen gave me the impedus to write a book on histories, Statistics and rules of the game of golf.

Surely by the end of 2005 all my friends will know the diabolical rule decisions #20-7b/2 and #27-2b/9 & 10 (plus an additional stroke for not mentioning the word "provisional").

On professional play 2005, this book also takes a humorous and sometimes irreverent look at the sport of golf:

  • Facts, figures and photographs
  • Extreme Golfing Excuses
    (desperate reasons for a poor round)
