In fact, thirteen of our last sixteen presidents have devoted untold hours to the pursuit of the perfect swing. In Presidential Lies, little-known stories and facts reveal our chief executives love of the game in a collection that combines history, gossip, and golf, and the new paperback edition includes the Bill-Clinton-falling-down-the-steps-at-Greg-Norman s-house episode and its aftermath.
