In Golf We Trust: A Golfing Miscellany

Keith B. Marshall, Author St. Martin's Press $15.95 (193p) ISBN 978-0-312-02587-8
This collection of columns from the past 40 years of Golf Monthly , assembled by the author of Golf Galore , will entertain links fanatics. The book's appeal lies in Marshall's fascination with the offbeat and eccentric, and his splendid sense of anecdote. He writes of such phenomena as playing out of a water hazard; the vogue for golfers to stand on one leg, begun by a coach who felt that position improves the sense of balance; talking to the ball and making a marriage proposal on the golf course. There are amusing looks at the behavior of the greats as they play and such quotes as Lee Trevino on Fuzzy Zoeller: ``His mouth is worn out but his ears are brand new.'' (Jan.)
