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)
