"John Daly walks into a clubhouse bar and reads a sign that hangs over the bar:
FREE BEER! FREE BEER FOR THE PERSON WHO CAN PASS THE TEST!
So John asks the bartender what the test is.
Bartender says, 'Well, first you have to drink that whole gallon of pepper tequila, the whole thing at once and you can't make a face while doing it. Second, there's a 'gator out back with a sore tooth...you have to remove it with your bare hands. Third, there's a woman up-stairs who's never had an orgasm. You gotta make things right for her.'
John says, 'Well, I've done some outrageous things in my life, but as much as I would love free beer, I won't do it. You have to be nuts to drink a gallon of pepper tequila and then it gets crazier from there.'
Well, as time goes on John drinks a few, he asks, 'Wherez zat teeqeelah?' He grabs the gallon of pepper tequila with both hands, and downs it with a big slurp and tears are now streaming down his face.
Next, he staggers out back and soon all the people inside hear the most frightening roaring and thumping, and then silence. John staggers back into the bar, his shirt ripped and big scratches all over his body.
'Now' he says, 'Where's that woman with the sore tooth?'"
Each joke is preceded by a golf quote, "These greens are so fast, I hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow." -Sam Snead on the Greens at Augusta
Or, warm hearted quotes like, "There's a perfect shot out there tryin' to find each and every one of us.... All we got to do is get ourselves out of its way, to let it choose us.... Can't see that flag as some dragon you got to slay.... You got to look with soft eyes.... See the place where the tides and the seasons and the turnin' of the Earthy, all come together...where everything that is, becomes one.... You got to seek that place with your soul." -Legend of Bagger Vance

Golf has come a long way from the Highlands of Scotland. It has grown to become a multibillion dollar a year industry and has captivated the interest of people of all ages, all over the world. Also, the concept of using common activities to teach valuable principles for living isn't new. The many parables Jesus Christ taught used metaphors that were common to life. This isn't the first book written to draw analogies between the game of golf and the game of life, but it is unique in that the author has included some of his own stories and experiences. During the time he worked on a beautiful golf course as it was being built, he felt prompted to write down some of the insights and comparisons to life, from a Christian perspective, that God was showing him. This little book is simply meant to be a vehicle to direct heart and mind from earthly things to things above. Jesus is still speaking to the hearts of people today. Read on and see what He is saying to you! About the Author: C. D. Wood has also written the first two volumes of The Jasharian Chronicles (Jashar and Eshek). He has also illustrated a children's book called The Quiggely Quee. This is his first non-fiction book. He and his wife currently live in Shelburne, Ontario.
If you can play a few tunes on the bluegrass banjo but haven't played much with others (or at all), this book will show you what you need to know to sit in on a hot jam session. Geared toward beginner and intermediate players, this book covers playing chords, including which ones to play and when to play them. You'll also discover how jam sessions work and how to act in a session, along with advice on practicing at home. The included CD contains nine tunes performed at a typical jam session. The music is on the left channel with dialog about the tunes such as the name, the key, and the chord progression on the right.
When golfers first hit the green it certainly wasn't well-lawned and well-tended. Players simply waltzed into the wilderness and took whatever sandtraps and water hazards nature could throw at them, thwacking those balls with good grace across the skyline. Today golf is a grand and peaceful sport with a dash of high society about it. But what happened in between? Golf, A Very Peculiar History takes a sideways look at one of this nation's greatest exports, tracing its history from the earliest ball-in-hole games right up to the scandals that rock its current celebrities and tournaments, with a fair few mulligans in between. From its origins as a strictly men-only, exclusive sport, golf has matured a great deal through the ages and has distanced itself from the elitist pursuit it once was, today allowing players from all creeds and sexes. This book takes a look at how these prejudices have (sometimes) been overcome. Just remember, it's not always the caddie's fault...
