A Quiz Deck by William Rogin
Why do golfers yell "Fore"? Why does one play a round of golf? That is, why "Fore" instead of "Hoopla-hoopla" and "round" instead of 11 ramble"? This Q&A deck of 48 cards is full of wonderful tidbits of golf information, all of it entertainingly presented and solidly researched. Each card's question, posed on the front, is answered on the back. You'll learn who the cleekmakers were; muse with the scholars as to whether golf originated in Scotland, Flanders, Holland, France, or China: and meet the first Olympic golf medalist (she left Europe without ever knowing that she'd won).
A golf education in a box, What Do You Know About Golf? is as satisfying for the solitary reader as it is for the raucous crowd at the nineteenth hole. Fore!
