Golf is in the details, and for anyone fascinated by the minutiae of the game, "A Disorderly Compendium of Golf" hits the pin. It's all here, including history: oldest courses, top 5 money winners at 10 year intervals, the importance of James II of Scotland. It also includes: Colourful characters: like the hustler who would bet you that he could roll out of bed in the morning and make a 40 foot putt on his first try, and his secret for doing it every time; Odd rules: did you know you may take a free drop from an ant hill but not from poison ivy? Good golf instruction, how to hit Phil Mickelson's trademark flop shot and confusing golf instruction: Tom Watson says "Never feel you're reaching for the ball," while Johnny Miller advises "Reach for the ball..."; Embarrassing moments and helpful tips; The lexicon: professional caddie nicknames, terms for an ugly shot, names of golf balls; Plus gambling games, the grasses used in greens, unusual patents, Shakespearan quotes on golf, golf at midnight, longest and shortest holes...and more, and more....
