Overview

Only Golf Spoken Here: Memoirs of a Passionate Irish Golfer by Ivan Morris

Ivan Morris is a "golf nut." He lives it, eats it, and dreams it. As a low handicap golfer for almost forty years, he played in over 100 Irish. British, European, and American championships and won more than a few. Along the way -- to his great delight -- Ivan met or became friends with some of golf's best players and most unusual characters. The list includes Tiger Woods, Sam Snead, Gary Player, Christy O'Connor Sr., an Irish teammate known as "Tail Gunner" Carew, and an Irish caddie known as "The Rooney."

In Only Golf Spoken Here, Morris presents an amusing account of his memories and feelings about a game that continues to tantalize and frustrate him after a lifetime of playing it. His opinions and insights -- from a distinctive Irish viewpoint -- will no doubt make enjoyable reading for anyone with an interest in golf, Ireland, or both.
