Tell me about plumbing, fine. Tell me about carpentry, terrace gardening, the timer on VCRs. Go ahead and explain cellophane. Tell me about allof these things, but don't try to tell me about golf, okay? Golf I know.--Dan Jenkins

After four decades of covering golf-notto mention playing scratch from the blues and gambling for my own money when I didn't have any, Dan Jenkins most definitely knows golf. Hemay, in fact, know the game better than anyone on the planet. Now, his latest and long awaited collection brings together his best writing on thegame, from serious pieces on timeless classics like the 1954 Masters and the 1960 Open to humorous takes on everything from the best things in golf-thebest bar is Club XIX in the Pebble Beach Lodge-to his unrequited love of golf carts. With a cast that includes everyone from Hogan, Palmer, and Nicklausto all of the lurkers and spoilers on the PGA Tour, the book is a timeless addition to great golf literature.

From the TradePaperback edition.
