There is something for everyone in The Golf Miscellany. Now fully revised and updated up to and including the US Masters 2014. As the items appear completely at random, The Golf Miscellany is not really a book that should be read from cover to cover; it is more a book that should be dipped into sporadically and enjoyed in short breaks. Painstakingly researched, and offering a refreshing insight into the game - from the essential to the downright quirky - The Golf Miscellany will bring hours of pleasure to every sports fan.
John White is a lifelong sports fanatic who has devoted all his spare time to compiling a massively comprehensive computer database of sporting facts and figures. He is the author of all the books in Carlton's sports Miscellany series. An Irishman from Belfast, he has been a keen follower of the fortunes of his countrymen over the years, from Christy O'Connor through to Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell.
