Golf Books #181 (The Random History of Golf)This is the story of golf as it’s never been told before.

Presents a dog-legged compilation of sports reports, spoof correspondence and reminiscences from pros, caddies, playing partners and armchair pundits: Mary Queen of Scots cheers herself up at the links at Leith following the murder of her husband Lord Darnley; Dwight D Eisenhower’s valet shoots the breeze as he clears up the Oval Office following a particularly gruelling Presidential putting practice session; Bob Hope’s chauffeur experiments with some one-liners whilst waiting for his boss in the clubhouse car park; and John Daly’s local bartender describes the unique skills of his best customer.

The albatrosses, the Big Berthas, the yips and the holes-in-one that have provided the perfect excuse to linger at the nineteenth hole are amusingly recalled for the delectation of the Fair Isle sweater brigade.

This fresh new edition, Embarrassing Shanks & Outrageous Slices goes where no golfer wants to be – a little off-line and with their balls in funny positions.
