Learn all the do's and don'ts of golf!
Golf is the only sport where how you treat the other people in the game is as important as the actual game itself. The rules for playing golf are clearly defined, but how golfers expect other golfers to comport themselves before, during, and after a round is less codified. Yet, acting in ways that frustrate your fellow golfers is the fastest way to find yourself without partners.
Now, New York Times bestselling author, etiquette authority, and enthusiastic golfer Peter Post explains what golfers need to know to confidently handle every situation that doesn't have to do with hitting a shot. Peter addresses the top do's and don'ts including:
- How to deal with the biggest frustration in golf—slow play.
- When to speak and when to keep quiet.
- When is a "gimme" acceptable?
- Where to stand when a fellow golfer is making a shot.
- Dealing with sandbaggers and other cheats.
- Do's and don'ts when playing for "a little something."
Peter Post's useful tips on the subtleties of the game—such as how and when to offer advice, strategies for speeding up play, and "piniquette"—will help players new to the game as well as longtime golfers be better companions on and off the course. Packed with true stories from golfers about their best moments and worst behavioral blunders on the course, this book is for anyone who appreciates the spirit of the game.
