Golf Chronicles

If you’re a golfer, you’ll love this book for author Joseph Bronson’s passionate description of the game. He’s meticulous in his detailing of the philosophical nature of golf and his insights into major world competitions. His descriptions of the variety of courses he himself has played are entertaining and inspiring. You’ll want to book your next tee time before the last page is turned.

For the golf widow or widower, Golf Chronicles will help you understand why your loved one spends so much time on the course. This game is about so much more than hitting a ball around acres of neatly trimmed grass. The dedication required to improve performance is the same as that which any life goal requires.

Golf Chronicles is as multicultural as the world itself and also a microcosm of life. Expansive and intimate, this game has something for each part of us and for all of us, together.
