Storytelling is alive and well among golf professionals, and fortunately there is more than enough here of general interest. Don Wade gives us a moment of the past recaptured by compiling both sad reminiscences (Roberto de Vincenzo recording his scorecard incorrectly on the 17th hole at the Masters) and lots of hearty laughs by Seve Ballesteros, Chi Chi Rodriguez, and Will Rogers. Alhough they may strike some as a little dull, personal glimpses into the lives of the golf professionals emerge. Wade has done a remarkable job of selecting over 200 stories, but what is obviously missing here are stories about more women golfers. Only two are mentioned--Nancy Lopez and Babe Zaharias. The book provides a valuable service by bringing this together in one volume. Recommended for sports collections.
