Golf's Strangest Rounds pub Portico 9781910232934Golf has many themes when it comes to strangeness. There are tales of tragedy, interference from wildlife and odd tactical ploys. There are stories about weird weather, remarkable recoveries and recondite rules. From the stark naked golfing Naturists to astronauts playing a round on the moon, this sport has been played under the strangest of circumstances.

Golf’s Strangest Rounds by Andrew Ward is packed full with extraordinary but true golfing stories. Revealed are the mysteries of the underwater golf course that only appears for three hours a year, the spectacle that was a plane using the seventh fairway as a runway and the conundrum of the hole-in-one that disappeared.

Save yourself a bogey and swing a hole-in-one with these memorable moments from golfers galore, from elite professionals to plucky amateurs to the downright daring.

Andrew Ward is a sports fanatic, journalist and inveterate chronicler of the weird. He is the author of Cricket’s Strangest Matches, Football’s Strangest Rounds, Bridge’s Strangest Games and Horse Racing’s Strangest Races.

Fully revised and updated with brand new material for a new generation of golf obsessives, this book is perfect for any golfing fan.
