"Tell me about plumbing, fine. Tell me aboutnbsp;nbsp;carpentry, terrace gardening, the timer on VCRs. Gonbsp;nbsp;ahead and explain cellophane. Tell me about all ofnbsp;nbsp;these things, but don't try to tell me about golf,nbsp;nbsp;okay? Golf I know."--Dannbsp;nbsp;Jenkins

After four decades of covering golf-not tonbsp;nbsp;mention "playing scratch from the blues andnbsp;nbsp;gambling for my own money when I didn't havenbsp;nbsp;any", Dan Jenkins most definitely knows golf. He may,nbsp;nbsp;in fact, know the game better than anyone on thenbsp;nbsp;planet. Now, his latest and long awaitednbsp;nbsp;collection brings together his best writing on the game,nbsp;nbsp;from serious pieces on timeless classics like thenbsp;nbsp;1954 Masters and the 1960 Open to humorous takes onnbsp;nbsp;everything from the best things in golf-the bestnbsp;nbsp;bar is Club XIX in the Pebble Beach Lodge-to hisnbsp;nbsp;unrequited love of golf carts. With a cast thatnbsp;nbsp;includes everyone from Hogan, Palmer, and Nicklaus tonbsp;nbsp;all of the lurkers and spoilers on the PGA Tour,nbsp;nbsp;the book is a timeless addition to great golfnbsp;nbsp;literature.
