A Field Guide to Lost Balls, Missing Links, and Other Golf Mishaps
In Bad Lies, golf's wittiest observer, photographer Charles Lindsay, celebrates the hazards and pitfalls of the game. Lindsay stakes out the diabolic border territories that encroach on golf courses--moon-crater bunkers, waist-high fescue grass, murky lake bottoms--to capture the unbelievable my-ball-went-where? moments that make the game so infuriating and so addictive for so many.
This hilarious follow-up to Lindsay's popular Lost Balls (Little, Brown, 2005) features inspired and gorgeous color photographs, plus larger-than-life pictures of some of the world's rarest--and oddest--golf balls. Texts include a foreword by outspoken golf commentator Gary McCord, definitions of the game's offbeat terminology, and a meditation on the golf ball and the immortal soul.
