Über diesen Titel:
There's a social aspect to golf that's unique to the sport. It's the only sport where you're building relationships at the same time that you're trying to play your best and win?and maybe close a business deal. While the rules of golf are clearly defined, the etiquette of golf is less codified. Making the wrong move can cause annoyance, errors in play, or even injury?all things your fellow golfers won't forget.
Now bestselling etiquette authority and passionate golfer Peter Post explains what seasoned golfers and newcomers need to know to handle every situation with total confidence. Based on Emily Post Institute surveys on golfers' most annoying incidents on the course, Peter addresses:
- How to deal with the biggest frustration in golf?slow play.
- What to do if you break the cardinal rule of never being late.
- When is a "gimme" acceptable?
- The difference between friendly play and tournament play.
- Dealing with sandbaggers and other cheats.
- Do's and don'ts when playing for "a little something."
Peter Post's useful tips on the subtleties of the game?such as how and when to offer advice, strategies for speeding up play, and "piniquette"?will help longtime golfers be better companions on the course. New golfers unsure of the unwritten social rules of golf will find all the information they need to avoid embarrassment. Packed with true stories from golfers about best moments and worst behavioral blunders on the course?ranging from the sandbagger who cheated himself out of an eagle to a wardrobe malfunction that gave new meaning to the term "You're out"?this book is for anyone who appreciates the spirit of the game.
