Golfers should know much more than just stance, grip, and swing; hence 'Doctor Golf' comes to their rescue with advice on varied aspects of the game. From classic caddy flogging and the terminal method of keeping one's head down, to selection and care of a golfer's spouse and reasons why the splendiferous greens at Eagle-Ho golf sanctuary make fall-out shelters irrelevant, this book has answers to it all. With witty responses to the most vexing of golfing concerns, 'Doctor Golfe' serves as the most wanted doctor on call, at your service any time, anywhere!
