There are only 34 official rules of golf, but it takes more than 20,000 words to make them unintelligible enough so that most golfers cannot understand them properly...so this book doesn't even try. Instead, Golf Rules: How to NOT Win a Tournament lays out many of the ways that pro golfers and others have found to be the correct way to receive penalty strokes and/or get disqualified. Included are numerous bone-headed mistakes that golfers you'll recognize have made, plus humorous golf quotes, an index of the actual rules, some history about the game, plus the author's allegedly witty comments about the game - including his suggestion for designing a perfect game of golf in which no errors (either intentional or unintentional) can be made.
This book is an excellent gift for any golfer in the family (or the ex-family), and is a perfect listen for any plane or train trip. Written by Gene Grossman, author of the popular Peter Sharp Legal Mystery Series. When listening to this book, one will understand why Gene sees so many mysteries in the game of golf.
