Even though he wasn’t personally present for the very first story in the book, ‘The Boys From BallyB ,’ that came to him in a vision and this is how we know that golf was first played in Ireland (Sorry, Scotland).This book also contains my Prize-winning story ‘Hoist…’ which explores the eternal conflict between golf and gardening and proves that a golfer never gets an even break! There are twenty stories in total (47k words), looking at all the ways that golf can grab the unsuspecting and make their lives a misery. Jammy Flaherty, the baddest man in town, features in several stories, including my personal favourite of the 80 or so golfing stories that I have written to-date, namely, ‘The Merchant of Ennis’.

The idea for that story came from that well-known wordsmith, W.P. Shakespeare, although it is written in a slightly more modern style!The Book Cover Artwork is by Robert A. Finn.
