P.G. Wodehouse often said that he wished he'd spent more time playing golf and less "fooling about writing stories and things." Happily, the prolific and beloved satirist often took his pen to the green. Here, Wodehouse expert D.R. Bensen has collected a dozen pieces to delight golfers and those who know them -- even those who have never basked in the ecstasy of a perfect putt.

Wodehouse is so much fun to read. I've read this book several times now and it is as much fun each new time as it was the last. Mr Wodehouse has a very fine sense of the ridiculous and crafts his stories around the game of golf, and club life, with a wonderfully creative use of English language. I think I need to read some "Jeeves" again - just for the fun of the language and situations created to amuse us.

If Seinfeld was a TV show about nothing. Then Fore is a book about nothing. The golfers in these pages symbolize the shallow rich P. G. Wodehouse made a career writing about. I found the stories to be entertaining, a look at a world long dead, if it ever really existed. I found it at a sale for 50 cents or a dollar. I just can't see paying full price for it.
