From the Publisher"A good read. I'll, er, bet you would like it."
". . . .a comprehensively reported book that traces the history of gambling in golf and how it developed with the sport."
"Not only does this book document the history of betting on golf, but perhaps more interestingly, it is stuffed full of gambling anecdotes – a cracking read!"
“Michael Bohn has written a splendid book recording the history of betting on golf. The examples start with Scots royals James I and Mary Queen of Scots and lead through the golden days of match play in the 1800s and 1900s to the present day fever of the Ryder Cup. Henry Longhurst, the great British writer and commentator, said, ‘You should always play for a little more than you care to lose!’”
“If you play golf for money, you need this book; if you don’t play golf for money, you need to start.”
"Intently researched, skillfully reported, and artfully written, Money Golf is something you can bank on, proving once and for all that some of the best stories are about following the money."
“A zesty collection of tales from the monetary front lines of golf. Bohn’s funny and detailed recounting of classic and sometimes harrowing wagering wars reveals how wide and colorful the theater of operations really is. It’s entertaining and also useful—it’s rich with field-manual material that helps simple soldiers like me live to fight another day.”
