The Bogey Man

by George Plimpton

An Independent Review:

As old as it is, this is still an excellent get-well gift for men who lived and died with the Palmer era. One does not even have to be an avid golfer to enjoy the book. Only a casual knowledge of the game is needed. I feel this was the best of Plimpton's books

Plimpton doesn't pretend to be anything other than what he is: a privileged amateur of questionable skill who is afforded the opportunity to play in several west coast pro-ams with various professionals. He relates many anecdotes, both first and second hand, several of which are hilarious insights into a tour which hadn't, at this juncture, reached the sophistication which characterizes its status today. Plimpton's typical self-effacing style makes this an enjoyable read.
