Overview

This is not your normal golf book. Don't read it if you think it will be. Put it back on the shelf right now.
Instead, "Bad Golf" is a unique, insightful and ribald examination of the everyday player's view of golf. Written with passion and wry, incisive wit, Simon explores the lure of golf for 90 percent of the players who can't break bogey - the bad golfers. With his tongue firmly planted in cheek, he takes the reader on a journey of badness, finding enlightenment, joy and even a few lessons along the way.
From "The Art of the Club Toss" to "Eliminating the 40-Putt Round," Simon has his finger on the pulse of what passionately drives so many golfers to pick up the clubs, and the frustrations experienced in trying to perfect the game. Acknowledging the difficulty in ever becoming Number One, he provides advice and solace on how to get the most of your game, and keep it all in perspective.
Written with the average golfer in mind, "Bad Golf" still extends its expansive stories beyond the fairways, making this a thoughtful read for anyone who likes to chuckle at life, and the roadblocks thrown in our way.
This series of essays, written in an easy-to-read format, is ideal for today's on-the-go world. Each chapter stands alone, and the reader can set it aside for months, if needed, and still pick it back up without losing a beat. Unlike golf.

    ***** David is a great storyteller and accomplishes this in bad golf. No one captures more interesting anecdotes in a funny way. This is a great read and captures real golf stories. Buy a couple for your friends. They will appreciate it!

    What I enjoyed were the 34 short stories that every "bad" golfer can relate to and bring a smile. I can especially relate to the chapter "Where's my ball?" I bought 20 copies for my annual golf trip buddies. It makes a great gift or golf outing give-away.

    could not resist this book after seeing the title and tagline.

    could not resist this book after seeing the title and tagline. It will make you laugh, cry, shake you head, but most of all recognize yourself and your favorite playing partner(s) in every chapter. Would make a great gift for both duffers and low handicappers i.e. those who may have forgotten what it's like to live in bogey golf purgatory.

    Extremely funny and well-written. As bad as my golf game is, it's nice to know I'm not alone. If you've had a funny, frustrating, embarassing, awesome, or other memorable experience golfing, it's probably in this book.
