Small-town lawyer and avid golfer Augie Wittenbecher joins old buddy Gordon McSweeney for a guest-member tournament at the super-affluent Easthelmsford Country Club on Long Island's South Shore. In the opening chapters, Augie inadvertently beds hapless Gordon's wife Catherine, crosses paths with old prep school enemy Gil Plumber, and, finally, falls into love-at-first-sight with Gil's fiancee Azy. At its core, this entertaining summer novel is about golf--rules/etiquette of the game, clubhouse psycholo gy, and one-upmanship, plus lots of tour nament action with Augie and Gordon emerging triumphant. At tale's end, a newly confident Gordon forgives Augie for the indiscretion; Augie punches out overbearing Gil, then drives off with beautiful Azy. A good, sexy novel for adult readers who love golf.-- James B. Hemesath, Adams State Coll. Lib., Alamosa, Col.
