ISBN: 1590710002 TITLE: A Nasty Bit of Rough AUTHOR: Feherty, David DESCRIPTION: Readers of Golf Magazine will immediately recognize Major General (ret.) Sir Richard Gussett, the riotous imaginary uncle featured in David Feherty's column "Sidespin."In this first volume of his misadventures, Gussett sets his sights on the most prestigious prize in golf, the petrified middle finger of St. Andrew, patron saint of Scotland. Presiding over Scrought's Wood, the world's most cantankerous golf club, Gussett must motivate his merry band of members through the battles with incontinence, single malt Scotch, peculiar handicaps, and a litany of other unmentionable afflictions in order to seize the finger in a "friendly" competition with their ancient rivals, the dreaded and notorious MacGregor clan. Feherty's fan base will rejoice, the driving range addicted will tee-off, the ISGA will have "no comment," and anyone who loves the game or knows someone who loves the game will not be able to resist Feherty's storytelling and golfing gravitas. AUTHORBIO: Upon his retirement from professional golf in 1997, David Feherty has been a mainstay throughout the PGA golf season on CBS Sports as an on-course personality and commentator.In addition to penning his monthly Golf Magazine column, Feherty also writes a biweekly column for Golfonline.com, the most popular golf site on the web.A major draw at clinics and speaking engagements throughout the year, Feherty has been called "The Class Clown of Commentary," and "Golf's Ultimate Wise Guy."Born and raised in Ireland, he now lives in Irving, Texas with his wife Anita and their five children, Erin, Rory, Shey, Karl, and Fred.REVIEW: "....a pure delight....Every golf nut will love this book."
