Overview

A collection of the best writing from James Y. Bartlett, one of the most-published golf writers of his generation, BACK SWINGS contains a fascinating mixture of player profiles, informative takes on the important issues of the game, and the best of this award-winning writer's travel stories from golfing around the globe. Golf fans will enjoy the up-close-and-personal vignettes in "Caddiewampus," the chapter in which Bartlett recounts his often hilarious adventures as a caddie for the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ernie Els, Corey Pavin and Ben Crenshaw. Throughout the book, Bartlett's unique style and passion for the royal and ancient game shines through. Whether he's writing a never-before-published glimpse of golfing great Sam Snead in his twilight years ("St. Francis of the Fairways"); relating his performance anxiety when caddying for the great Jack Nicklaus ("Caddying for the Big Guy"); describing some of the idiotic rules of golf and how we manage to break them ("Wattery Filth, Animal Scrapes and Loose Impediments"); or writing about how the Coefficient of Restitution problem might have deeper meaning for all of us ("Golf's Great Human Question"), Bartlett's wit, knowledge and deep understanding of golf leap off the pages. Forward by Christopher Buckley. Index.
