Reviews for G.O.L.F.: 

"Lane Luoma's G.O.L.F. is a unique book that deals with all the trials and tribulations that all of us golfers deal with each time we hit the links. As you read along, you begin to feel a sense of kinship with fellow golfers as we all deal with the same frustrations and humility when it comes to golf. This book is aptly titled as G.O.L.F. Greatest Of Life's Frustrations/Game Of Limitless Fun. Lane really covers the A to Z of all things golf. The book is quite entertaining, funny, and really an affirmation of just how crazy the game of golf is. Lane's G.O.L.F. reminds us that the struggle is part of the game and to enjoy the journey." - LinksNation.com

"I loved this book! I'm not sure how, but Mr. Luoma has figured out how to put down into words every single thought that's ever crossed a golfer's mind - it's truly a rollicking read! Mr. Luoma takes golfers and non-golfers alike on a fascinating voyage into what it really means to play the game - from chagrin to euphoria, it's all in this book." - Golfstinks

"The book G.O.L.F. Greatest Of Life's Frustrations/Game Of Limitless Fun is meant to be ' A lighthearted look at one of the world's most frustrating yet beloved games'. I was hooked after the title. I found it really easy to relate to the topics in this book and often found myself wondering if I was the subject of many of the chapters. If you're a golfer you'll definitely be able to relate to this book and if you're a non-golfer it will help you understand and relate to the golfers in your life. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did." - Eatsleep Golf

REFERENCES 

From the back cover:

“When it comes to golf, frustration is not just possible or probable, it is, in fact, unavoidable and inevitable. Being classified as a frustrated golfer, however, is in no way a dubious distinction. It is not an admission of inferiority but only an admission of being human.”

“The GREAT GOLF PARADOX: There’s probably no game more difficult to master and yet no game more enjoyable when you do, even if only for a fleeting moment. It can, at times, embarrass, humiliate, humble, infuriate, and frustrate us without mercy but in spite of that, most who play love the game and many are downright fanatical about it.”

“Golf may best be described as a game of opposites. You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. You swing right and the ball goes left. When your body is limber you use stiff shafts. When your body is stiff you use limber shafts. The lowest score wins and the winner buys the drinks. It is also the only game I know of that can be so FRUSTRATING one moment and yet so FUN the next.”

“Golf is indeed a game but not only a game. To its dedicated and devoted followers it is much more than that. It is in part a religion, a vice, an obsession, a passion, an affliction, a mystery, and an enigma. It can at times frustrate one beyond belief but in the blink of an eye it can also offer up unbridled joy like nothing else.”

“G.O.L.F. can often seem like the GREATEST OF LIFE’S FRUSTRATIONS but it can also be a GAME OF LIMITLESS FUN. It is, in my humble opinion, still THE greatest game the good Lord ever created.”

Read about yourself or someone you know. If you’re a golfer you are most likely mentioned, described, or pictured many times in this book. If you are a non-golfer but know a golfer(s), you will enjoy reading about them and laughing at them over and over within these pages.
