            NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Reilly pokes more holes in Trump's claims than there are sand traps on all of his courses combined. It is by turns amusing and alarming. -- The New Yorker Golf is the spine of this shocking, wildly humorous book, but humanity is its flesh and spirit. -- ...Chicago Sun-Times Every one of Trump's most disgusting qualities surfaces in golf. -- The Ringer An outrageous indictment of Donald Trump's appalling behavior when it comes to golf -- on and off the green -- and what it reveals about his character. Donald Trump loves golf. He loves to play it, buy it, build it, and operate it. He owns 14 courses around the world and runs another five, all of which he insists are the best on the planet. He also claims he's a 3 handicap, almost never loses, and has won an astonishing 18 club championships. How much of all that is true? Almost none of it, acclaimed sportswriter Rick Reilly reveals in this unsparing look at Trump in the world of golf. Based on Reilly's own experiences with Trump as well as interviews with over 100 golf pros, amateurs, developers, and caddies, Commander in Cheat is a startling and at times hilarious indictment of Trump and his golf game. You'll learn how Trump cheats (sometimes with the help of his caddies and Secret Service agents), lies about his scores (the Trump Bump ), tells whoppers about the rank of his courses and their worth (declaring that every one of them is worth $50 million), and tramples the etiquette of the game (driving on greens doesn't help). Trump doesn't brag so much, though, about the golf contractors he stiffs, the course neighbors he intimidates, or the way his golf decisions wind up infecting his political ones. For Trump, it's always about winning. To do it, he uses the tricks he picked up from the hustlers at the public course where he learned the game as a college kid, and then polished as one of the most bombastic businessmen of our time. As Reilly writes, Golf is like bicycle shorts. It reveals a lot

            A humorous look at the game of golf through verse, cartoons and observations from one of New Zealand's best-loved cartoonists. His earlier book of verse, Nursery Rhymes your mother never read you (2005) was the first New Zealand poetry book to have been awarded both a New Zealand... bestseller Gold medal and a New Zealand Bestseller Platinum medal (16,000 cps sold). Widely known as both a landscape painter and a political cartoonist, and not at all as a golfer, Garrick Tremain succumbed to the intrigue of golf many years ago and perseveres with its challenges despite reason and advice. He finds it astonishing that it engenders such strong emotions in some people: watching him in action, grown men have been known to weep. This book is his tribute in verse, cartoons and quotes to the game and those who persist in playing it!

            Seven Days in Augusta: Behind the Scenes at the Masters (EPUB ebook)

            By Cannizzaro, Mark; Mickelson, Phil

            The Masters is unquestionably the crown jewel of golf's major tournaments, not only for the transcendent performances it has inspired over the years, but for the incomparable sights and sounds of Augusta National and its environs, each distinct element contributing to the storied..., rarefied atmosphere which draws tens of thousands to Georgia each spring. Seven Days in Augusta spans everything from the par-3 contest, to Amen Corner, to Butler Cabin. Mark Cannizzaro goes behind the scenes of the exclusive competition, covering wide-ranging topics including green jacket rituals, tales from The Crow's Nest atop the clubhouse, the extreme lengths some fans have gone to acquire tickets, and what goes on outside the gates during Masters week. Also featuring some of the most memorable and dramatic moments from the tournament's history, this is an essential, expansive look at golf's favorite event.
