Notes

Description
Dan Jenkins virtually invented the golf novel with the classic Dead Solid Perfect, his rollicking account of the life and times of PGA touring pro Kenny Lee Puckett. For thirty years his fans have waited for the follow-up; in The Money-Whipped Steer-Job Three-Jack Give-Up Artist, Jenkins has surpassed himself. Bobby Joe Grooves is a sixteen-year tour veteran trying to turn his one annual tournament win and considerable Texas charm into his first appointment to the Ryder Cup team. Standing between Bobby Joe and his little piece of gold heaven are two ex-wives and a girlfriend, all of whom know to a penny his spot on the money list; Swedish sensation Knut Thorssun, known to his fans as "Nuke" and to his fellow pros as "Cheater"; a completely rational fear of reptiles; tempting but dangerous groupies; and his embarrassing lack of a career major. As we follow Bobby Joe's quest for a spot of the Ryder Cup team, we learn more about golf history than you'll find in any weepy sunset-over-the-18th-green retrospective, and more about how to actually get the damn ball into the cup than in any of the thousands of instructional books none of us can understand. The Money-Whipped Steer-Job Three-Jack Give-Up Artist is an uproarious portrait of what it's really like to play on the PGA Tour. It's vintage Dan Jenkins.
