Summary
"Golf writers are in touch with the soul of the game. With charm, wit, and wisdom, they write to help golfers at all levels hack through the vines of frustration and confusion. Writers explore the mystique of the game. The Texas Twosome leads off The First Chapbook for Golfers. Exclusively for this book, Bud Shrake offers a wonderful story about the day legendary Harvey Penick missed lunch and a lesson with famed writer James Michener. Dan Jenkins follows with a piece that will evoke grins and grousing from golfers who have the PGA Tour take over their club to stage a Tour event. Bud Shrake, of course, co-wrote the Harvey Penick books, starting with the Little Red Book. Is there a similarity here? You bet! This book is a treasure chest of golf stories from well-known authors who are anything but synonymous with the game of golf-among them A.A. Milne, Rube Goldberg, John Updike, Ian Flemming, P.G. Wodehouse, Art Buchwald, and more. Tips and insights abound from those who have played the game at the highest levels, including Bobby Jones, Sam Snead, Raymond Floyd, Ben Crenshaw, and Roger Maltbie. Out of the thousands of books on golf, there has never been one like this one. It is as entertaining as it is useful, and it is a tip of the visor to Bud Shrake and Dan Jenkins, bosom buddies who hold course records for love of the game."--Amazon
