my good friends the Allen. ne of the best of their many excellent dicta is that to play golf is to spoil an otherwise . ne of the best of their many excellent dicta is that to play golf is to spoil an otherwise enjoyable walk. In 1904 the saying was attributed to a popular novelist named Harry Leon Wilson who used a cleverly expanded version of the jape. Although I do not endorse the view of the well-known jockey who said that golf merely spoilt a good walk, it appears to me that (excellent game though it be) the attention it receives is just a little in excess of its merits as a game and not merely as an agreeable provider of exercise. In 1913 a South Dakota newspaper printed the following description: 6.

Another golf book, and I thought it would be more of the same old same old...man was I ever wrong. Feinsteins "A Good Walk Spoiled" must have Super Glue spread all over the cover. I simply could not put it down. From page one to the end Feinstein has you in his grasp, or grip because we're talking about a golf book. This is the best writing on golf that I have ever read. The inside dope on the players et al is eye-opening. You thought you knew these players from seeing them on TV, think again. Buy the book and read and read and read. You will have no regrets...that's a promise and I don't make promises lightly. The last promise I made were my marriage vows.

Bought this as a gift for my dad, who is a big golf fan. He really loved it. He has made multiple comments about how he enjoyed it even more than he anticipated and will enjoy going to tournaments more now that he knows so much about the process.

John f is the driest most boring writer of all times. For him to be a best seller the bar must be super low.

Feinstein tells the year-in-the-life stories of famous and not-so-famous golf pros, from trudging through Q-school to the pressure-packed environment of the Majors. Excellent view into the PGA and it's inner-workings. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
