has all the known, but most important, unknown facts about the history of golf. Excellent read!
Compiled by Uncle John's 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 game's 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.
