Overview

The bestselling author of Little League Confidential goes on a hilarious investigative excursion to find out what's behind America's growing obsession with golf.
Why does America love golf? Is it the beautiful scenery? The languid pace? The stylish slacks? Puzzled by these pressing questions, Bill Geist, who had never picked up a club before, sets off determined to learn the game and to uncover what accounts for America's overwhelming infatuation with this "royal and ancient" sport. Geist goes through the embarrassing rites of passage--buying clubs, joining a country club, purchasing a wardrobe, and of course, taking lessons-all observed with the same offbeat humor that made Little League Confidential a national bestseller. Geist's unique approach provides uproarious insight into the nuances of the game that will ring true for any golf lover.
