Driven to Extremes: Uncommon Tales from Golf’s Unmanicured Terrain


Product Description

Jeff Wallach

“Entertaining and well crafted essays that will set you thinking differently about golf–and for the better.” — Bradley S. Klein

“I admire anybody who loves the game and writes about it as well as Jeff Wallach.” — James Dodson, author of Final Rounds

Tommy Naccarato asked how far it was to Pine Valley’s infamous ‘Devil’s Asshole’ bunker. ‘128 yards,’ his caddie said. ‘Give me the 8-iron,’ Naccarato decided. ‘I did not come all the way here to get on the green. I came here to take on that Asshole.’

Driven to Extremes is a rollicking collection highlighting “extreme” golf from one of the game’s freshest voices: Extreme Personalities (including “Golf Architecture’s Biggest Fan”,
quoted above), Extreme Destinations (like Baja’s Loreto, whose caddie-master
has no caddies and whose driving range has only one ball), and many more.

Jeff Wallach has written for Golf Magazine, Links and many other publications, and steers the popular golf-and-travel website “The A Position.”
