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.
