My Usual Game chronicles David  Owen's funny and enlightening quest to come to  terms with a game that has frustrated and fascinated  him ever since he was a child. Follow Owen as he  rescues his swing at golf school, spends a week  with the inventor of the modern golf club, nearly  wins a three-day Pro-Am at a tournament on the PGA  Tour, travels with three golf-crazed friends to  tacky Myrtle Beach, follows Fred Couples and Paul  Azinger at the Ryder Cup, and discovers what may be  the darkest secret of the golf swing: The difference  between a slice and a draw is a certain number of  beers.

My Usual  Game is a hilarious and wonderfully literate  tour through the sometimes peculiar culture of this  very popular sport. Golfers of all ages will  discover My Usual Game for many years  to come. It is destined to become a classic of  golf literature.
