Cow Pasture Pool: Golf on the Muni-Tour by J. D. Winter

By J. D. Winter

Cow Pasture Pool: golfing at the Muni-tour is a light-hearted examine how contributors of this loose-knit journey team play the sport: which of the foundations of golfing they abide by means of and which they decide to forget about. It humorously seems to be at wagers, "hustlers", apparatus, gown codes (and loss of them), and personalities at the tour.Interspersed all through are a laugh stories and anecdotes, besides authentic tales that mix to make this the whole e-book of golfing -- maybe even the last word golf e-book considering the fact that "no holes are barred".

His score of 307 was almost eight strokes lower than the average winning score of the previous ten Opens, and the fifty-four-year reign of the "gutta-percha" came to an end.

About 1848, a Scottish minister at St. Andrews named Patterson, who was an avid golfer, experimented by molding balls out of material that had been used as packing around a statue shipped to him from India. His creation proved to be a decided improvement over the "featheries"; it could be hit for longer distances, with more control, and lasted much longer.
