From the Publisher

From the Jacket

Why does North America love golf? Is it the beautiful scenery? The languid pace? The stylish slacks? Puzzled by these pressing questions, Bill Geist, who had never picked up a club before, sets off determined to learn the game and to uncover what accounts for North America's overwhelming infatuation with this "royal and ancient" gentlemanly sport.
Geist goes through the embarrassing rites of passage for all golfers -- buying clubs and equipment, joining a country club, purchasing a wardrobe, and of course, taking golf lessons -- all observed with the same off-beat sense of humor that made Little League Confidential a national best-seller. Geist's unique approach to the world of golf provides uproarious insight into the nuances of the game that will ring true with any golf lover.
