With John McPherson's classic wit, these cartoons convey the humor, the thrill and the sport of the game. The perfect pick-me-up after a day spent slicing or the way to celebrate a bogey, this is the laugh-out-loud book for golfers (and the people who miss seeing them on the weekends).
Golf is many things to many people; but, most of all, it is a mirror. And when we look into that mirror we cannot help but see our lives and ourselves, not the way we would like them to be, but the way they really are. Fortunately the wisdom gained from the game helps us find the lighter side of that all-too-honest view. Whether kneeslapping hilarious or just chuckle-to-yourself funny, no other sport can boast of its ability to make us laugh the way golf can—because golf forces us to laugh at ourselves.
If you’re reading this, chances are you’re a golfer, which means that any of the following will strike a chord or make you grin, and possibly even make you laugh till it hurts:
We relate to all this because golf makes us face our own shortcomings in a way that other sports, even other solitary ones, just can’t.
Take swimming, diving or skiing: nothing funny about swallowing water or crashing into a snowbound tree. But spontaneously leaping for joy because you had three witnesses to your hole-in-one—now that’s something to make you beam from ear to ear, laugh joyfully in perfect understanding, and even sing! (Yes, sing! You are a golfer, aren’t you?)
We hope you’ll agree that the cartoons in this collection capture all the magic, delight and humor of the game, and celebrate just why you love it so much. Whether it’s walking on the green, swinging a perfectly balanced titanium driver, or reaching the Zen state only putting can create, nothing puts a smile on a golfer’s face like, well, playing golf! May this book bring you as much joy as the game of golf itself.
