Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Golf But Were too Afraid to Ask explains the often-baffling laws of modern sport in a light-hearted and easy-to-understand way to the new fan/spectator or the 'sport widow'. This is a witty, off-the-wall guide to the rules of the modern game, as if written by a very patient but understanding friend. Writer Iain Macintosh explains what it is about golf that makes it so popular, and why you should be watching it. He guides the novice through the basic rules of the game in a bouncy, easy-to-fathom style, but also explains why it is a sport that contains glimpses of every facet of human emotion, making it even more compelling. If you've ever wondered what an 'albatross' has to do with the sport, or why Tiger Woods is supposed to be so much better than everyone else, this book will tell you everything you will ever need to know about golf, but were too afraid to ask.
