"Two Good Rounds" dishes on Tour pros' favorite drinks
There have been almost as many memorable stories told about the 19th Hole as there have about the other 18 combined. In case you aren’t familiar with the term, the 19th Hole refers to the clubhouse bar, where wins are celebrated, losses are consoled, and every shot, good and bad, is relived in vivid detail.
Now a new book, Two Good Rounds: 19th Hole Stories from the World’s Greatest Golfers ($20, Skyhorse Publishing), serves up an engaging compilation of libation-related profiles of PGA, LPGA, and European Tour players past and present.
Each of the 36 chapters focuses on one player, from Jack Nicklaus to Jhonattan Vegas. After a thumbnail sketch of the player’s career highlights, we read about the player’s favorite drink and favorite 19th hole. We also hear about players’ holes in one, when, by tradition, they owe everyone a drink to celebrate.
The book is filled with scads of color photos, which pick up the slack for the prose, which is a bit lackluster on occasion. All in all, Two Good Rounds is one fun read. Nothing heavy or profound here – just the thing to pair with a glass of wine, refreshing cocktail, or frothy brew.
