Overview


One of the funniest books ever published on its subject Golfing, is back. And better than ever.

Now an avid golfer, Henry Beard brings the same passion for improvement to writing about golf as he does to playing it, and he's both added new definitions and rewritten many others. Like Whiff - "Familiar term widely misused to describe particularly fast and powerful style of practice swing intentionally made directly over the ball."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Another in the publisher's ``definitions'' series lampooning specific sports, this title will make golfing aficionados chuckle. Beard defines ``Driving Range'' as ``a place where golfers go to get all the good shots out of their systems.'' A ``Hole-in-One'' is ``an occurrence in which a ball is hit directly from the tee into the hole on a single shot by a golfer playing alone.'' And the ``Fairway'' is ``a narrow strip of mown grass that separates two groups of golfers looking for lost balls in the rough.'' McKie's drawings provide an energetic accompaniment to the text. (July)
