Product Description

When I first started playing golf, I decided that I would avoid renting a cart. If nothing else, I wanted the exercise benefit. Walking the course, especially if you don't hit down the middle of the fairway, provides a pretty good workout, and gives you time to think. And there's not a better place to think than in the outdoors, under a blue sky, walking on the green grass while enjoying the gentle breeze.

It turns out that John Bytheway has had a lot of good thoughts on the golf course, and this little book is both a declaration of his love for the game and a collection of things he has learned while playing.

Filled with golf wisdom, favorite golf jokes and quips, and stories about LDS leaders who have played the venerable old game, this is a perfect book for anyone who has ever attempted to propel a little white ball into an artificial hole in the ground “with implements ill adapted for the purpose.”

It was enjoyable to read that even the President of the Church is able to enjoy a relaxing day golfing to clear his mind.

Excellent gift

This was bought as a gift for a man who has everything. It was really liked for both its simplicity of style and yet very nice quotes and thoughts throughout the book.
An excellent stocking stuffer or gift anytime for the man(or women) who enjoys golf.
