About The Book

This book is for the golfer who just enjoys getting out with friends once or twice a week for a round of golf and for the golfer whose skills may need improvement. Basically, this book is for every non-pro golfer who plays the game because, as we know, golf never ceases to frustrate. The author, Mike Pavlik, wrote If You’re a Duffer, You’re OK in My Book to deliver the message that it’s all right to be a duffer. In other words, it’s fine if you don’t burn up the course and you don’t play like Fred Couples or Jack Nicklaus. If You’re a Duffer, You’re OK in My Book encourages fellow golfers to be honest in evaluating their game, even if their skill levels are subpar. Building on his own experiences, Mike Pavlik highlights that although golf is a sport and a competition, a bad round should not mean a bad day, nor should it discourage us from enjoying a day with friends and exploring the great outdoors.

If You’re a Duffer, You’re OK in My Book includes a description of experiences and definitions describing a duffer, plus a round-by-round depiction of a duffer (the author himself) and how he plays and approaches each hole. While this book won’t make you a better golfer, at least not in the sense of lower scores, it will help you enjoy each round a little more, even if you don’t break a hundred. A section of the book allows you to record the memorable shots and best efforts that you have already achieved.
