    1. Don Gorman

      (1 1/2). I used to enjoy Ben Wright's work when he was a commentator on the golf broadcasts. This book is also enjoyable, at times. Who knew all these sports guys were such bad drunks? Like a bunch of drug addled rock stars or something, these guys just drank and drank and drank. Some of the stories in here are pretty amazing, some boring to tears. It just goes to show how hard it is to make a memoir/autobiography a really good book.

      A book for the golf nut. Has lots of facts and trivia about the daily life around the professional golf tour. It is a book you can pick up and read at any time because it lacks any plot. I've used some of the info to impress golf friends!
