Golf, Stardom and Jordan Spieth

It was pretty amazing being in St. Andrews to watch Jordan Spieth make his bid for the third leg of golf’s Grand Slam. I think of the cab driver’s line after it ended: “The young bloke ’bout did her, dint he?”

He did. He really did.

    While watching the Open, I read The Secret of Golf. It is an excellent book, combining Joe’s usual great writing and storytelling with a terrific story and a bit of golf instruction. I heartily recommend the book. I apologize to Joe for borrowing the book from the library. That’s not a good way to support our favorite overworked writer.

      I read recently that libraries are actually great for publishers, and therefore great for writers. Libraries buy a lot of books, and a lot of hardback books. It’s not like everyone who gets the book from the library was otherwise going to run right out and buy a new copy for themselves.

    It is sad to read the comments on the NBC page. I guess people have nothing better to do with their time than to harangue each other and the writer (Joe). The comments section on Joe’s blog has always been mostly devoid of insults and filled with thoughtful comments, even when they disagree with Joe.
