hai già letto il libro di Andy Brumer, pubblicato ad ottobre 2007 ?
Io ancora no, a parte il breve estratto disponibile nel sito dell'University of Nebraska, e spero di avere presto l'opportunità di conoscere il testo intero, che finora ha ricevuto solamente recensioni lusinghiere.
Brumer, handicap 4, è giornalista, scrittore e poeta, presente sulle più importanti riviste di golf.
Many golfers would agree with Andy Brumer that there is poetry in the game of golf. And Brumer is not the first to insist that there is more to the game than the superstars, swing gurus, and high-tech equipment that dominate talk of the game today. In this series of essays, Brumer, one of the most insightful writers on golf, considers the game from unexpected and often surprising angles. At once contemplative and compelling, The Poetics of Golf explores the links between golf and life by way of art and literature, philosophy and psychology. In portraits of various playersâ€”including Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam, and Arnold Palmer, among othersâ€”Brumer teases out the truths that their games can tell us, not just about golf, but about character and courage. And he also offers an unconventional yet enlightening look at the intricacies of the golf swing, course architecture, and golfing equipment. Finally, his book reveals to usâ€”in its content and also in its wide-ranging, often lyrical styleâ€”that golf is by no means only a game.
