Overview

In Bad Lies, golf's wittiest observer, photographer Charles Lindsay, celebrates the hazards and pitfalls of the game. Lindsay stakes out the diabolic border territories that encroach on golf courses--moon-crater bunkers, waist-high fescue grass, murky lake bottoms--to capture the unbelievable my-ball-went-where? moments that make the game so infuriating and so addictive for so many.

This hilarious follow-up to Lindsay's popular Lost Balls (Little, Brown, 2005) features inspired and gorgeous color photographs, plus larger-than-life pictures of some of the world's rarest--and oddest--golf balls. Texts include a foreword by outspoken golf commentator Gary McCord, definitions of the game's offbeat terminology, and a meditation on the golf ball and the immortal soul.

    Terrific--and just in time for Father's Day

    or graduation from golf school, or before you hit that ball off the first tee. It has splendid photographs, some museum worthy, and excellent commentary. It is even better when paired with Lindsay's "Lost Balls", an extremely amusing book with great photos by Lindsay and commentary by John Updike--and that makes a veritable hat trick: 1, amusing; 2, Lindsay; and 3, Updike.

    Recommended for the golfer you know and love!

    Besides the great title, this book has great pictures and lots of "stories" for a golfer to add to his or her list.
