Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tales of Golf and Sport

The Joy, Frustration, and Humor of Golf and Sport

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tales of Golf and Sport contains Chicken Soup for the Soul’s 101 best stories and poems about golfers, golfing, and other sports. This book has fresh appeal to golfers and makes a fabulous gift.

Golfers are a special breed. They endure bad weather, early wake-up calls, great expense, and “interesting” clothing to engage in their favorite sport. This is not a book about how to play golf -- it is a book about how it feels to play golf. Professional and amateur athletes contribute stories from the heart, yielding a book about the human side of golf and other sports.
