From ace to zinger, How to Speak Golf includes over 125 golf terms paired with charming and clever illustrations that decode the words and phrases that fly around a golf course. Clubhouse Chatter sections are sprinkled throughout where you'll learn about everything from the origins of golf, the worst courses and biggest sand bunkers in the world, to the reason why there are so many bird references in golf terminology, a history of famous holes-in-one, and much, much more!

Some of the terms included in the book are:

-Army golf: The inconsistent hitting of the ball from one side of the fairway to the other. (Think: Left, right, left.)
-Cabbage: The worst of the rough. (Also known as "Spinach" or "Lettuce." Whatever you call it, this is a salad to be avoided.)
-Ham and egg: When two players on a team pair well, with one player excelling whenever the other falters.
-Velcro: Greens that are slow, where it seems like the ball sticks to the grass.

Author Sally Cook and illustrator Ross MacDonald offer the perfect blend of funny anecdotes and fascinating bits of history and trivia. This is the perfect gift book to have you talking like a master whether you're a pro, a lifelong fan, or a novice on the greens.
