The fact that Lorne Rubenstein has a new book out is good enough for us. His A Season In Dornoch is one of the best books ever on the subject and should be must reading for anyone heading to Scotland or who is just having a mid-life wanderlust.
Several years ago I was at a demo day where Moe Norman was giving a demonstration for Titleist. He hit about 20 drivers on a rope that all landed within a yard or two of each other. The coolest part though is that the tee never moved…he picked it off clean as can be time after time.
Then he asked for a volunteer. The brave hacker from the crowd took Moe’s club and cranked one pretty good…the peg went flying out on the range. Moe looked at the shot, then at the golfer and said in a low, fast mumble, “loved that tee, had it seven years.”
I for one am going to buy this book. It’s about one of the great characters in a game of great characters.
