Overview

From Best Courses to Biggest Chokes, Most Underrated to Worst-Dressed Golfers, Golf List Mania! includes 120 lists that will inform and entertain. Includes contributions by personalities including Jack Nicklaus, David Feherty, and more, plus a Foreword by Jim Nantz.
 
Why you'll enjoy this book:

5. Contributions from famous golf writers. You'll get the perspective from some of the best in the business.

4. Lists from the greats, including golf's "Big 3": Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. It doesn't get much better than that.

3. A walk through golf history from Young and Old Tom Morris to Tiger Woods. You'll learn a thing or two along the way.

2. There are no right answers. The fun part of this book is the debates that they spark. I'm sure there will be lists when you go, "That guy is a complete idiot." Isn't that the essence of golf and sports?

1. The next best thing to playing golf is reading about golf. You also make fewer bogeys that way. My good friends, Ed and Len, have compiled more than 100 juicy and interesting lists that are sure to entertain.
 
I hope you enjoy this unique look at the game we all love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

the20thhole.blogspot.com April,2011
“…a variety of both humorous and creative golf lists and rankings…the book provides an entertaining and vast array of over 100 lists describing the good, bad, and ugly of golf.”

chicagoduffer.com 4/25/11
GOLF LIST MANIA! by Leonard Shapiro and Ed Sherman is an informative, comprehensive, and often times hilarious new book …GOLF LIST MANIA! is a celebration of golf…If you are a stat junkie like myself, or if you simply hold strong opinions on who were the best and who were the rest in professional golf, GOLF LIST MANIA! is the perfect book to keep on your mantle, coffee table, or inside your golf bag just in case.  If nothing else, you will have an incredible amount of knowledge ammunition to take with you to the 19th hole following your next round with friends.” 
 
ottawagolfblog.com May 2011
“Leonard Shapiro and Ed Sherman have done a great job of putting together a golf book with lists for everyone who’s picked up a golf club and has felt the pleasure of a perfectly struck iron shot.”
 
golfstinks.blogspot.com  May 2011
“As soon as I found out I was getting a copy of Leonard Shapiro and Ed Sherman's "Golf List Mania!" I began to schvitz in excitement. Besides it being a future 19th hole and coffee table staple, this book offers up (as they perfectly denote), ‘The Most Authoritative and Opinionated Rankings of the Best and Worst of the Game.’”
 
armchairgolfblog.blogspot.com, June 2011
“An entertaining and informative book of original golf lists about the players, events and moments that have shaped the game.”
 
The Tennessean
“If you like golf and you enjoy rankings, you will want to grab a copy of Golf List Mania.”
