Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Granted, not every golfer cares about Newton's laws, D'Alembert's paradox, Stokes's model, or the Magnus-Robins effect, but all impact the game, and Wesson, a retired physicist, interprets them with a facility that would have helped Einstein understand golf's mysteries. His Mr. Wizard approach to winds, muddy balls, the probability of aces, and the bias of handicaps only amplifies his wizardry." — Golf.com
