Golf Nuts by Ron Garland

Book Description

These are the folks who practice chip shots in elevators with invisible wedges. These are the people on the golf course in parkas on the first day the temperature tops 30 degrees. These are the junkies who spend hundreds of hours searching pharmaceutical companiesa websites for a cure for the "yips". These golfers are "nuts" and the anecdotal stories of Golf Nuts are proof. In pathological putting circles, author Ron Garland is known as the "Head Nut" of the Golf Nuts Society, an organization that he founded which now boasts a vast membership of "nuts", and these are his favorite accounts from a group of seemingly normal people with an abnormal obsession.
