Bury Me in a Pot Bunker: Golf Through the Eyes of the Game's Most Challenging Course Designer

Pete Dye, Author, Mark Shaw, With, Greg Norman, Introduction by Addison Wesley Publishing Company $24.66 (241p) ISBN 978-0-201-40769-3
A golfer whose obsession with the game was not matched by his talent, Dye became a course architect, aided by his wife, who has the trophies to prove she was the family's better golfer. Over a 30-year period, the Dyes have designed some 70 courses, all planned to be ``straightforward and honest while still being difficult as hell.'' Aided by freelancer Shaw, Dye tells of the influences that shaped his philosophy of design, particularly the courses of Donald Ross and the best links in Scotland, especially Old St. Andrews. He then analyzes more than a dozen of his own courses, from the Dominican Republic to California, with a number in the Midwest, explaining his layout of many of the holes. Golfers who think of every designer as a fiend incarnate will find the book revealing. Illustrations. (Nov.)
