Description

The best golf writer on the planet returns with his funniest book ever. Dan Jenkins virtually invented the golf novel with Dead Solid Perfect, his rollicking account of the life and times of touring pro Kenny Lee Puckett. After thirty years of waiting for the follow-up, Jenkins returns to the world of big-time golf in The Money-Whipped Steer-Job Three-Jack Give-Up Artist and finds a world where endorsements and course fashion matter more than the side bet. His hero, Bobby Joe Grooves, is a hell-raising two-iron-wielding rogue trying to turn his one annual tournament win and considerable Texas charm into a spot on the Ryder Cup team. Standing between Bobby Joe and his little spot of golf heaven are two ex-wives, a girlfriend, various pious PGA officials, and his embarrassing lack of a career major. A book that will teach you more about golf history than any weepy sunset-over-the-eighteenth-green retrospective, The Money-Whipped Steer-Job Three-Jack Give-Up Artist is an uproarious portrait of what it's really like to play on the PGA Tour. It's vintage Dan Jenkins.

Review quote

"Dan Jenkins is a comic genius." -Don Imus "[Golf's] Book of the Year . . . It's drop-dead hilarious, like anything Jenkins writes, and cost me a full night's sleep . . . because I laughed so hard I couldn't close my eyes."
-Leonard Shapiro, Washington Post "[A] laugh-out-loud funny-and unabashedly politically incorrect-insider's look at the tour."
- New York Times Book Review
