Review of Conversations with the Golf God

Review of Conversations with
The Golf God written by
Robert K. Swisher Jr.

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Being an avid golfer since the age of fourteen, I found Conversations right on the mark when it comes to golf, golfers, and golfing. Conversations between a golfer called Shanks, which in golf terminology meaning someone who hits the little white ball all over the place, and the Golf God are absolutely funny.

Robert does a fine job in making the face to face meeting entertaining enough that a non-golfer would enjoy the Golf God’s game pontificating while drinking a can of beer. He tells his disciple Shanks how one is to conduct the business of playing golf in a hilarious way.

The true rules of the game are given, because the Golf God believes that there are too many rules now than there were in the beginning. That history is also given to Shanks along with a glossary laid down for all to read. There is no commandment other than, “Always rake the sand trap,” which is three of HIS 14 rules of golf.

This was an easy read for me because I know golf. But I assure you, it is a funny read for anyone who plays any individual sport.
