Overview

Melanie Hauser pulls together the best, most memorable, and most outrageous stories ever written about Texas golf and Texas golfers. Where else but Texas could Titanic Thompson - a hustler so thorough that he'd dig up road signs to set up a bet - do the impossible whenever cash was on the line? Where else could "golf's angriest man," 1940s touring pro Lefty Stackhouse, get so angry at hooking his drive that he'd walk over to a thorny rose bush and begin whipping his right hand back and forth through it, drawing blood? Where else could Austin County Club legend Harvey Penick spin his wonderful tales about golf and life? Filled with profiles, commentaries, tournament reports, and the outrageous antics of some of golf's greatest hustlers and conmen, Under the Lone Star Flagstick is a must read for anyone who relishes a good Texas tale - or the best golf has to offer.
