Bogeys and shanking, plus fours and six irons, the alleged etiquette of caddies – all you need to know about the heaven and hell of golf is in this unique book. From the serious (the origins of golf) to the bizarre (moon golf), the informative (the perfect tee-height) to the ridiculous (snow golf), 'The Golfer’s Companion' takes the reader down a fairway of notes, quotes, facts and stats.

It also offers extracts from the finest writing about golf over the centuries. PG Woodhouse shares space with Bob Hope, while Agatha Christie snuggles up with AA Milne. And like all the other books in the 'Companion' series, there’s a magnificent piece of statistical trivia to match each page number.

The market for this book is global and growing. Internationally golf is one of the most popular sports today – with more and more magazines on the subject appearing on the market, many aimed at the young or ‘punk’ golfer some are even calling the sport the new rock and roll.
