Publisher's Summary

Entertaining as well as practical, this is the audiobook for would-be golfers and struggling golfers alike, performed by Peter Alliss - the 'voice of golf'.

Peter Alliss has been entertaining huge TV audiences for the BBC and ABC in America for many years. In this new anecdotal but thoroughly practical audiobook, Peter Alliss sets out to promote golf as the answer to middle-aged discontentment.

Peter Alliss has no difficulty giving compelling reasons as to why golf is the perfect game for adults - breathtaking scenery, fresh air, camaraderie and instant therapy. Alliss describes how to go about taking up the game, what equipment is necessary to buy and who to contact for lessons. He describes the basic techniques of golf, how to maintain a consistent swing and how to build up self-confidence.

GOLF - THE CURE FOR A GRUMPY OLD MAN is aimed at regular golfers whose skills have deteriorated and would-be golfers who need the guidance as to which path to follow. Alliss is humorous but always helpful and confirms the great game as a really accessible and hugely enjoyable pastime to pursue for both men and women.

What the Critics Say

"At first glance, this looks suspiciously like a written-to-order Christmas stocking-filler, but Peter Alliss has such a marvellous shaggy-dog voice and such an engaging way of telling his innumerable 19th-hole stories that it doesn't matter. It's packed with history, anecdotes and gossip. Did he ever tell you about the time Prince Philip remarked tetchily that golf was easy? Alliss should try playing polo, where you not only have to hit a moving ball but ride a bloodly horse at the same time." (The Guardian)
