The late sportswriter George Plimpton was spot on when he said, “The smaller the ball, the better the book.” With the possible exception of baseball, no other sport can touch golf’s literature for depth or excellence. For starters, there are the masterful essays by Bernard Darwin, grandson of British naturalist Charles Darwin; the grandiloquent prose of Herbert Warren Wind, who covered golf for The New Yorker for decades; the brilliant, hilarious short stories of P.G. Wodehouse; and the laugh-out-loud novels by Dan Jenkins, notably The Dogged Victims of Inexorable Fate. A game for all seasons, golf engages its enthusiasts on and off the course.
