Description
Lorne Rubenstein is the preeminent figure in the world of Canadian golf journalism and a member of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame. He has been reporting on golf for more than thirty years, and this is a collection of Rubenstein's best and favourite pieces from 1993 to 2008, selected from thousands of newspaper, magazine, and Internet articles. In this book, readers will revel in the wide range of subjects, including course design; swing techniques (such as the stack and tilt); famous people, such as Moe Norman, Jack Nicklaus, Marlene Streit, Payne Stewart, and Ben Hogan; writers, such as Stephen Leacock; and reflections on the beauty and joy of the game. Two separate chapters are devoted to our most important golf heroes: the Canadian champion Mike Weir and the indomitable Tiger Woods.
Within these pages, golf enthusiasts of every age and skill level will find something new to delight them. This is as much a celebration of the sport as it is a celebration of one of our most esteemed and beloved golf writers.

“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.”

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.”
