Overview

Who are the world's best golfers? Which men and women golfers have won the most money? Who hit the longest drive on record?

These and many other questions will be answered in The Golf Book of Lists, a volume that looks beyond the statistics to delve deeply into golf-related information that's sometimes significant, sometimes trivial, and always opinionated. Here you'll find information and opinion on the burning issues in the sport today, as well as on some of the more peripheral but equally important issues such as the best and worst golf courses to dine at, the oldest golfers to win PGA tournaments, and the wealthiest left-handed golfers.

The author enumerates the Top Five and Top Ten golf courses, Web sites, money winners, computer games, jokes, vacation Meccas, and much, much more -- always keeping his eye on the humorous side of the game.
