“Every page of this wonderful collection of golfing stories will remind you why you love the game, and why, no matter how you play it, you will always find a certain peace in what will surely be another ‘fine spring.’”
— Peter Mansbridge
“Lorne Rubenstein writes about golf the way Byron Nelson played the game. It seems so effortless, so relaxed — but it goes the distance and always, always, holds the element of surprise. This is a real pro at the top of his game. Sit back, tee these small gems up and enjoy.”
— Roy MacGregor
“[Lorne Rubenstein is] one of the great contemporary names in golf journalism.”
— John McPhee, in The New Yorker
Praise for A Disorderly Compendium of Golf:
“Golf is full of quirky bits and pieces along with stories and information. There’s something on every page of this entertaining book to interest and amuse every golfer. Not surprising with Lorne Rubenstein involved — one of the best.”
— Arnold Palmer
Praise for Mike Weir: The Road to the Masters:
“When you finish reading this book, you'll feel as if you've slipped the Green Jacket on yourself.”
