From the trivial to the arcane to the bizarre to the hilarious to the tragic, Alliss' 19th Hole is a compulsively readable compendium of golf facts, told in the wry voice of the man Golf Digest called the "best golf commentator ever," the legendary Peter Alliss. Marvel at the accomplishments of golfers who have won a revered place in "Alliss' Hall of Fame," shake your head in disbelief at the chaos that ensues "When Good Golfers Go Bad," and relive "The Great Battles of Golf History." Take an armchair expedition to "The World's Ten Greatest Holes," learn "Ten Essential Facts About the Hole in One," and see what happens when the green is subject to "Animal Intrusions." Informed by a deep love of the game and a whimsical eye for detail that will delight and engage anyone who shares his enthusiasm for the game, Alliss' 19th Hole is the perfect book for any duffer who can't get enough links lore.
