really liked it

I'm fascinated by golf, as you'll see if you browse my book list. I don't play much and never played well, but in my teens I worked at driving ranges, par threes, and golf clubs, both around the clubhouses and on greens crews. Golf, like poker, has social aspects but is ultimately a game/sport/endeavor in which you play yourself. It also has plenty of larger than life characters, hustlers and caddy-shack denizens.

Feinstein writes about golf intelligently. He and Dan Jenkins are the greatest chroniclers of the game I've come across. Like all good sports writers, they understand how to extract the human mysteries that we call "literature" when other more enshrined authors write about them.
