For nearly thirty years, Peter Jacobsen-player, entertainer, (off-) color commentator, television host, golf-course designer, and entrepreneur (but, no, he doesn't do windows)-has been a favorite of fans and fellow golfers, and when he published Buried Lies in 1993, it was an immediate success. But a lot has happened since then-to him, to his colleagues, and to the game itself--and so it's high time he launched a mulligan.

From Jack Nicklaus to Michelle Wie, Tiger Woods to Vijay Singh, Jacobsen takes you behind the scenes of the pro tour like no one else can, as he tells you what it's like to play the PGA and Champions tours simultaneously ("from flat-belly to fat-belly"); how John Daly nearly decapitated a spectat∨ what players really say to each other in the locker room; why getting on SportsCenter is not always a good thing; how Payne Stewart got back at Paul Azinger for beating him in a tournament (moral: always check your shoes before you put them on); why loaning your caddy to Tiger Woods can be a mistake; what made Arnold Palmer change his shorts; and how Jacobsen won the U.S. Open (well…kind of).

Throughout, it is a book filled with wit, warmth, insight, and just plain fun: a pure delight. So grab your sticks and strap on your nails--let's go another round.
