Overview

Slices: Observations from the Wrong Side of the Fairway by I. J. Schecter

Even for the weekend golfer, with no aspirations of going pro, the game of golf is still highly rewarding sand traps or no. The daily travails of the average golfer, who simply enjoys the game and revels in his own small victories is detailed in this brilliantly funny book. A collection of 30 essays from humorist and diehard golf fan I. J. Schechter, Slices discusses subjects all too familiar to golfers who love the game but consistently hit bogeys. The author explains why he needs to keep his game at its current level ("Ten Reasons I'll Never Take a Golf Lesson"), compares his game with Tiger Woods's, and follows the lowest-ranked competitor at the Masters. J. Schechter (Toronto, ON, Canada) writes the "Just a Thought" humor column for Golf Monthly, the leading golf magazine in Europe.
