Overview

To the low- and high-handicapper alike, golf represents an ongoing quest and an exhilarating challenge. In this brilliant collection, award-winning author I.J. Schecter embarks on a dogged pursuit of golf's elusive Holy Grail—breaking 100—with hilarious results. Clinging to boundless (and often groundless) optimism, Schecter attempts to untangle the secret to good golf in increasingly desperate ways—like playing five different courses in five days, accompanying a greenskeeping team on their pre-dawn rounds, trying to replicate one of Tiger Woods's legendary shots, and turning to a three-year-old for guidance. Like any golfer, he comes to realize that the journey, though demanding, proves its own reward.
