Here at last is a guide to winning at golf that tells you how to dominate your opponents -- not by out-playing them, but by out-thinking them. Golf is so complex and demanding a game, so fickle and perverse, that even its masters never really master it. But, Jon Winokur assures us in this entertaining and eminently practical manual, if you can't play golf consistently well, you can at least win consistently. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Winokur provides various tried and true gamesmanship techniques with which to gain the advantage, from the most subtle psychological warfare to the carefully stifled sneeze.

Filled with wry humor, peppered with tips, quotes, and anecdotes from golf's greats, and illustrated throughout, this book is indispensable for anyone who would win at golf without actually playing well.
