    I am not a huge golf fan, but this is the best book I have read in my 21 years of life. Since seeing him on CBS and listening to him occasionally on the Jim Rome show, David Feherty has, in my view, brought anything about golf to the everyday know-nothing, especially me...THANK YOU!!!

    GOLF IN THE KINGDOM on acid and nitrous oxide

    <p>I'm the author of THE GREEN and THE FOURSOME, written under the pseudonym 'Troon McAllister.' It's not often that I get jealous of someone else's writing, but David Feherty has a touch and a voice that is to die for. Sillines is the main point, and NASTY ROUGH is pure whimsy of the best sort, with some parts so hysterically funny it would be just as well you didn't read it with other people in the vicinity. <p>HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    A double eagle for ¿Golf's Ultimate Wise Guy!!¿

    What happens when you combine the remnants of a former British military regiment; the most exclusive golf club (Scrought's Wood in Northumberland) in the world; the petrified, albeit prestigious, middle finger of Saint Andrew; a horny little mixed terrier named Dwilby; the Clan McGregor of the Tay, and a ¿friendly¿ golf competition? Add to the fray an Irish rabbi, and a clan Chieftain who is always accompanied by ¿a rather skittish three-legged charcoal ewe,¿ and you end up with the sidesplitting, debut novel (presumably the first in a series) from CBS Sports¿ ¿Clown Prince of Golf Commentary,¿ and Golf Magazine¿s feature writer David Feherty. Feherty brings his imaginary Uncle Dickie, and Uncle Dickie¿s merry band of zaniacs, from the pages of Golf Magazine to this delightful riot that is A Nasty Bit of Rough. This book is pure Feherty ¿ quick, witty, and a laugh a minute. It¿s also educational. One such example is the answer it provides to the centuries old question, ¿What do Scots wear under their kilt?¿ As I read the book, I began casting the rolls that would fill the screenplay, should one be written. John Cleese would certainly be at the head of the pack as Major General (ret.) Sir Richard ¿Uncle Dickie¿ Gussett. Mike Myers would be included to reprise his Scottish characters from I Married an Axe Murderer or, the rather rotund ¿Fat B--t---d¿ in Austin Powers. Someone has to make a movie based on this book. I¿d recommend this volume to anyone who loves the game or knows someone who loves the game. A double eagle for ¿Golf's Ultimate Wise Guy!!¿

    Golf Fiction Worth Reading

    Most golf fiction is tedious at best, but this book is astonishingly funny and very well written. It's so well written, in fact, that it makes one wonder how a guy who spent most of his life trying to get a small ball in a hole in the ground learned to write with such clarity. Feherty is either a Renaissance man or someone clever enough to hire a great editor. Anyway, the adventures of the nutty group at Scroutly Woods are beyond compare and well worth taking time to get to know, and indeed love.
