"In Rough Meditations, reading about golf courses is almost as much fun as playing them." --Arnold Palmer "Many golfers have strong opinions when it comes to course architecture. Nobody, however, matches Brad Klein's ability to explain the difference between good and bad design. Rough Meditations deserves a place on that select list of must-reads for anyone who cares about the art of the golf course." --Peter Jacobsen "Rough Meditations is eloquently written, blends a variety of topics seamlessly together, and touches repeatedly on aspects of golf that are barely acknowledged by the majority of golfers and pretty much disregarded by devotees of the 'aerial game.' If you haven't done so already, buy this book. Read it. Digest what it says. Become architecturally 'literate.' It's worth it." --Bob Weisgerber, Golf Today Magazine Rough Meditations is a unique collection of fascinating essays that bring the world's greatest golf courses to life with brilliantly colorful prose. These charming and often hilarious essays take golf enthusiasts on an intimate tour of the game's most distinguished courses.
Along the way, readers gain a privileged look at the differences between good and bad golf course design. Featured essays include: In Golf as in Life Longest Wait That Was Worth It Goofiest Modern Green Business or Art? Read Any Good Greens Lately? In the Beginning There Was Sand Worst Shot in Golf Treasure Hunting Long considered one of golf's most talented writers, Bradley Klein offers more than fifty essays, ranging from instructive to inspirational, that cover the architecture of courses, how to read greens, the ins and outs of green committees, the relationships that grow from the game, and much more.
