The perfect gift for anybody who has ever swung a club or marveled at the skill of touring professionals on television, The Greatest Golf Stories Ever Told is a compulsively readable collection of some of the most entertaining and insightful stories on the subject of golf.
Contributions include some well-known works from renowned writers of the genre, such as Dan Jenkins, Herbert Warren Wind, and John Updike, as well as some rare, lesser-known gems from George Plimpton, Bud Shrake, and the great F. Scott Fitzgerald. The thirty stories in this fascinating collection will lead you from tee to green, avoiding the bunkers while illustrating in vivid detail—through true and fictional tales—all the humor, drama, excitement, and emotion the game of golf is so richly steeped in.
