Random History of Golf : Embarrassing Shanks & Outrageous Slices (Hardcover) (Justyn Barnes & Aubrey
About this item
This is the story of golf as it's never been told before: 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 while 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 book goes where no golfer wants to be—a little off-line and with their balls in funny positions.
