Bought this book for my father-in-law who is 87 years old and has (and still does) golf throughout his life as a sport and leisure activity. He loved it and found it very amusing. For a few dollars it made his day !!!
This book initially attracted my attention for 2 reasons. First, I have enjoyed many of Hiassen's Florida based mysterys. Secondly, because I have had to swear off the ?game? of golf due to my own persistent bad play although my 'sticks' still claim residence in the attic.
True to form, Hiassen delivered a rocking good narrative describing his return to the game of golf after a hiatus of many years. He describes the ins and outs of playing regularly with a competency that frustrates one more than it rewards. His assessment that it is the one shot of the day that brings unrealistic joy and hope for tomorrow is dead on. It is what brings us hackers back to the course for more abuse again and again. We are reluctantly willing to put up with the frustrations of 90 or more poor shots for that one beautiful shot that makes it all worth-while.
