Explain away your bad shots—and have your friends laugh at the same time!
In Golf’s Best Excuses, author Joshua Shifrin takes a witty approach in helping golfers make sense of their worst days on the course. The next time a player goes down in defeat, he or she can always explain the woeful round with “My golf clubs are too old.” Or after a bad putt, golfers might try to explain the mishap with, “There were too many spike marks on the green.”
Shifrin has crafted 150 funny—but all-too-real—excuses for pros and amateurs alike. Examples include:
- I’m late for my wedding and it’s throwing off my concentration.
- I thought this hole was a dogleg to the left . . . not right.
- If I didn’t have those four double bogeys I could have scored really well today.
- Someone yelled “fore” during my backswing.
- Any many more!
Whether you want to motivate the duffer in your life or laugh away embarrassing mistakes in your own game, Golf’s Best Excuses is a must-read. Complete with laugh-out-loud full-color cartoons, this book makes for the perfect gift.
