From one of golf’s funniest, most popular players comes another hilarious look inside the pro sport and the people who play it.
For nearly thirty years, Peter Jacobsen—player, entertainer, (off-) color commentator, TV host, golf-course designer, and entrepreneur—has been a favorite of fans and fellow golfers. Since his first book, Buried Lies, was published in 1993, a lot has happened—to him, to his colleagues, and to the game itself—so it’s high time he launched a mulligan.
From Jack Nicklaus to Michelle Wie, Tiger Woods to Vijay Singh, Jacobsen takes you behind the scenes of the pro tour like no one else can, as he tells you what it’s like to play the PGA and Champions tours simultaneously; how John Daly nearly decapitated a spectator; what players really say to each other in the locker room; why you should never loan your caddy to Tiger Woods; what made Arnold Palmer change his shorts; and how Jacobsen won the U.S. Open (well…kind of).
Throughout, it’s a book filled with wit, warmth, insight, and just plain fun: a pure delight. So grab your sticks and strap on your nails—let’s go another round.
“Required reading for all golf fans who long for a glimpse of the humanity behind their heroes’ furrowed brows.”—Booklist
“A must read for every golfer or fan of the sport.”—Phil Mickelson, 2004 Masters champion
