This book should be read only in a "man cave." Filled with crazy, zany, frat-boy, sports-talk language, I laughed out loud all the way through. But, Jenkins is hardly politically correct; so much so that this book would now be banned at Yale (given today's politically correct sensibilities).

The history go the PGA wrapped in an infatuation with an adorable shapely and the "Best In Show" insanity of the pro sports world, all told with the Jenkins flair for snarky humor. Now you DO have to be at least mildly interested in golf to get through this, but Jenkins is so much fun to read even anti-golfers may be able to handle it.
