Two Good Rounds - 19th Hole Stories from the World's Greatest Golfers
Two Good Rounds is an international tribute to great Pro golfers and the golf lifestyle, which often includes the enjoyment of drinks. In each chapter, golf writer Elisa Gaudet asks a notable professional golfer the same questions: What is your favorite drink? What is your favorite clubhouse or 19th hole? And what is a special time or memory you can recall from a 19th hole? Have you ever gotten a hole in one? Did you buy the clubhouse a round?
The results yielded a wide array of answers ranging from crazy celebrations after a win to heartfelt memories of childhoods spent playing golf with family and friends. From the Arnold Palmer (one-half lemonade, one-half iced tea) to the Guinness (the beloved drink of tour star Darren Clarke), to Ernie Els award winning South African wine, drinks and golf are inextricably linked.
The book highlights the social side of golf in a respectful manner and shares personal vignettes from 36 of the top Pro Tour golfers, men & women, from around the world. Famous Pro golfers including Arnold Palmer, Ernie Els, Luke Donald, Jack Nicklaus, Nancy Lopez, Annika Sorenstam and Natalie Gulbis to name a few share their favorite 19th hole moments of celebration, memories from childhood, their favorite drink and what is popular in their country.
Everybody loves a celebration and golfers are no exception. It has long been a tradition after a round of golf to gather together and celebrate a win or merely enjoy the company of friends, new and old, with a second round at “the 19th hole,” a slang term used in golf that refers to a pub, bar, or restaurant on or near the golf course. Two Good Rounds explores this time old tradition.
