The stories, profiles and essays in the pages of Back Swings collect the best writing in the storied career of James Y. Bartlett, probably the most-published golf writer of his generation.
These humorous and curmudgeonly takes on the royal and ancient game come with Bartlett's unique voice and style, combined with his encyclopedic knowledge of golf.
While most of the stories in this book have appeared in some of the dozens of magazines that have carried Bartlett's by-line over the years--including Forbes FYI and Hemispheres magazines--there are a handful of original, never-before published articles as well.
Any avid golfer, or anyone else who appreciates good writing, will enjoy:
