More Description


Following his hole-in-one success with Now We Are Sixty Christopher Matthew turns his flair for hilarious verse to golf Bestselling wit Christopher Matthew looks at the meaning of life through golf and golfers - whether super-rich, globetrotting professionals or weekend amateurs hacking round in 100 or more. As everyone knows who ever strode a fairway with club in hand and hope in heart, there is more to golf than knocking a little ball round the countryside. All human life can be found between the first hole and the nineteenth, and every emotion - ecstasy, despair, love, hatred, reconciliation, revenge. Especially revenge. These verses - based on poems by the likes of Kipling, Betjeman, Tennyson and Browning - cover the subject from golf bores, bossy lady captains, golfing on the moon and club grub to golf widows, golfing dogs, and feeble excuses. They may not improve your swing, but they'll make you a better person in the rough, or in the bar.
