Odd stories of tragedy, interference from wildlife, weird weather, bizarre betting, strange outfits, odd tactical ploys, and recondite rules
 
Golf's most memorable moments are presented in this fascinating collection, together with bizarre tales from the lengthy annals of the sport's history. There are tales of tragedy, eccentricity, tactical slip-ups, and others that seemingly defy categorization altogether—like "Mysterious Montague," one of the world's best golfers, but who refused to compete in a single tournament. Numerous legends of the game have also experienced strange rounds in their respective careers, including Gene Sarazen, Al Geiberger, Chip Beck, Greg Norman, Robert de Vicenzo, and Nick Faldo—all of whom appear in the book for their parts in irrational finishes, record rounds, and famous freak shots.
