"Reading these books is like being in the locker room with the greatest players and storytellers in golf history. So sit back and enjoy it." -- Lee Trevino "Every golfer should come to the first tee with fourteen clubs, a dozen balls, a handful of tees, and at least one great golf story. Thanks to Don Wade's series of books, now we can have unlimited mulligans on our scorecards." -- Jim Nantz, CBS Sports I've been telling Don Wade my stories for all these years and I'm glad to see he's finally put them to good use." -- Sam Snead "All the great golf stories you've hoped to hear or read--and now you can." -- Dave Anderson New York Times "Whether you've just taken up the game of golf or played it all your life, you'll treasure this book and the stories it has to tell." -- Amy Alcott Don Wade, a senior editor at Golf Digest magazine, has been covering professional golf and collecting true stories about the game since the 1970s.

Don Wade, a former senior editor at Golf Digest, is the bestselling author of the popular "And Then Jack Said to Arnie..." series in addition to books with Amy Alcott, Nancy Lopez, Ken Venturi, and Sam Snead. He is vice president and editorial director of sportsoftgolf.com, the website of the Golf Society of the United States, where his column, "Wade's Web Weekly," appears.From Library Journal:
Golf Digest editor Wade's compilation of golf tales blends poignant, humorous, intriguing, and eye-opening stories about the people and places of the game. Giving credence to the many eclectic, well-written stories with his first-person narrative, Wade provides an interesting and insightful view of the game. Events he has witnessed or accounts related to him directly include stories about golfers Lee Trevino, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Weiskopf, as well as country singer Willie Nelson and the venerable St. Andrews' golf course. To say this is a collection of the "greatest" golf stories is unjustifiable. However, many of these are great stories and well worth reading. For most sports collections.
