Overview

Never Mind Where the Ball Went and other Golf Stories by Forbes Abercrombie

Have you ever thought of throwing your clubs with a bit of draw? Or deliberately playing slowly to rattle the opposition? Have you used the well-timed tactless remark to gain advantage? Read on and realise how such behaviour rebounds on the club golfer.
Discover also the satisfaction of taking part in the running of events and of the unusual way of stifling discussion in Committee. Whoever would have thought of cutting the holes square for a change and horrified the greenkeeper? Where does the red wolf fit in?
The author Forbes Abercrombie is a retired surgeon who took up golf in his early twenties, getting down to a single figure handicap at his best. He accompanied his clubs to many courses in many countries and had many adventures in play.
He has chosen thirty episodes which illuminate the corners of the great game. You will not find any instructional material here; just the moments that gave him most pleasure at the time. Incredible though these stories may seem, every story is true.
There is something for everyone in this slim volume. A word of warning though; this is not recommended bedtime reading, as you will have finished the book before you can put it down!
