Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fascinatingly informative and humorous swing through the history, philosophy, courses, players, equipment, fashion, and hilarious flubs of the great game of golf. Whether youre a serious pro, a weekend duffer, or just a fan of the sport, youll find this book as satisfying as a hole-in-one. Special feature: The seven best golf tips of all time.

Synopsis:

Compiled by Uncle Johns crack team of investigators, this witty and informative romp serves up a bounty of fascinating facts and tantalizing tidbits about the great game of golf. While it may not settle the question as to whether or not golf is a sport, the book does answer burning questions such as “Where is the largest sand trap?” (Clementon, NJ — a mere half acre); “How much do Americans spend on golf balls?” ($600 million per year); and “Is there a course that offers the chance to play with a live Bengal tiger?” (Yes! The Monu Valley Golf Club in Northern Bangladesh). Golf movies and presidential duffers — the good and the not-quite-so-good — are discussed, and captive audiences can learn the games history: its players, equipment, courses, famous flubs, and ever-changing fashions and philosophies. For serious pros, weekend duffers, or just plain fans of the game, this collection is as satisfying as a hole-in-one.

Synopsis:

Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader Tees Off on Golf is flush with fascinating facts about the origins of this royal and ancient sport. Since 1987, the Bathroom Readers Institute has led the movement to stand up for those who sit down and read in the bathroom (and everywhere else for that matter). With more than 11 million books in print, the Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader series is the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the world.

Where else could you learn about the greatest animals on the greens (Tiger, Shark, Golden Bear), the worlds best courses (think St. Andrews), and the worlds most dangerous links (watch out for land mines!)? You may not be PGA material, or even know the difference between a pitching wedge and a spatula, but with Uncle Johns tips and trivia, youll have plenty to talk about while you hunt for your ball in the rough. Read all about…

Golfers nicknames

The best tournament finishes in history

The origins of caddies, the LPGA, and the PGA tour

Strange (but real) rules

And much more!
