Tongue firmly in cheek, Dave Donelson tells some of the strangest stories in golf. Like the grudge match at Pebble Beach between Superman and Batman.

Disclosure: I received this book through a Firstreads giveaway in the expectation that I would review it.

To make where I'm coming from clearer, I'm not a sports fan, and in specific not a golf fan. I've played just enough golf to know the game doesn't appeal to me as a player, and I don't believe I have ever watched an entire match on TV. However, I'm a big fan of "strange sports stories" which blend a real-life sport with fantastic elements.

As you might gather, this is a single-author anthology...more

Weird Golf: 18 Tales of Fantastic, Horrific, Scientifically Impossible, and Morally Reprehensible Golf is a funny book for a somewhat limited audience. I expected the book to be non-fiction (due to a lack of detail in the Goodreads summary). Sort of a strange-but-true for golf.

I won a copy on Goodreads Firstreads.

To be totally honest,I am a non-golfer.So I almost skipped this book giveaway.Then I thought that it might make a good gift for my brother-in-law who is a golfer.I also was confused about the book itself.At first, I thought this was a collection of strange but true golf stories.So when I got the book and discovered it was stories about golfing and golfers.This lead me to think, this might be a good book for either golfers or those who like sci-fi/fantasy shor...more

I won Weird Golf through a Library Thing giveaway.

18 wonderful and original golf-related stories. I think my favorite was the one with the superheroes. I was laughing out loud and drawing some very strange looks from the people around me.

This book would make a great gift to the golf-lovers in your life.
