If you don't know the difference between a lob wedge and a lemon wedge, check out Golf for Dummies, by CBS commentator Gary McCord, one of the game's most colorful–and knowledgeable–characters. It's a wonderful, often hilarious, never boring introduction to the game. Don't let the foreword by Kevin Costner or the afterword by Hootie and the Blowfish confuse the issue; this is a terrifically sound, easy-to-follow primer. McCord's potato-chip drill–yes, potato-chip drill–will revolutionize your swing, and your thinking, with overtones that could spill directly into off-the-course existence, as well. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
