Publisher's Summary

Bill Geist is known to millions as an Emmy Award-winning CBS News commentator and the author of The Big Five-Oh! and Little League Confidential. So why is this otherwise well-adjusted man whacking plastic golf balls in a New Jersey grade school gym with an instructor whose first advice is "Once you've doubled par, pick up your ball and move on"? The answer: Geist has just become possibly the last American male to take up golf. And in his case, the pursuit will have the game's fans and detractors laughing every step of the fairway.

In this memoir of a golfer wannabe, Geist competes in the Bad Golfers Association Tournament - and loses. He skillfully analyzes Tiger Woods' game and offers his own insider's tips on playing better golf, including: "Every so often skip a hole - it's still the best way to take eight to 10 strokes off your game" and "Always play the closest hole."
