The Random History of Golf Hardback Book

Embarrassing Shanks & Outrageous Slices

This book contains a multitude of anecdotes, factual snippets and humorous tales about the much revered sport of golf. Small enough to slip into a jacket pocket or golf bag in readiness for the after-game round of drinks at the 19th hole, the book contains enough stories and cartoons to keep the reader amused for hours.

Beginning with a potted history of the sport, the book continues with types of stroke and club, expands into golfing styles and generally romps through a round of interesting and hilarious tales and stories, including suffragettes on Woking golf course, the invention of the tee by a New Jersey dentist and the story of Joyce Wethered, the straightest ever hitter in the game. The book is enlivened throughout with cartoons and illustrations by Tony Husband. Authors Justyn Barnes and Aubrey Day have clearly enjoyed compiling this little history: from the 15th century royal ban on the sport to the early 20th century golfer who (possibly) invented twerking, Lee Trevino’s rubber snake and the recent golfing ‘ghost’ up for sale on eBay, The Random History of Golf is essential reading for anyone who’s pined for their putter, waxed lyrical about their sand wedge or fondled their five iron.

This slim hardback book with a grass green cover makes a lovely gift for sports fans and golf enthusiasts, especially fathers, mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers who enjoy a round of golf. The book makes a welcome stocking filler at Christmas or an inspired birthday, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift.
