Here in one hilarious volume are all of Wodehouse's classics on the strange game of golf. No true golfer, and certainly no Wodehouse fan, can resist this collection. The table of cents is like the roll call at a class reunion; all the old faces are there, and whether you have read the stories before or not, the laugh aver is high, even for the old master. Himself an inveterate devotee of tee and green, Wodehouse better than any other living writer plumbs the depths of the golfer's soul. None of the humor and pathos of the great game escape Wodehouse's brilliant and satirical pen. Here is a golfer's masterpiece, and a treasure house of laughs, even for those who don't know a driver from a mashie.
