Excerpts from my original GR review (Apr 2009):
- Read this in 2000
- My late father-in-law had an old 1968 paperback edition which I eventually picked up. Plimpton has to be one of the most intriguing characters ever to come out of journalism. He helped found and sustain The Paris Review. Plimpton's assignments of "participatory essay" for lack of a better phrase, came while employed by Sports Illustrated.
- This book derives from a month spent on the PGA Tour, in ProAms on the west coast swing. Very funny stuff! He carried numerous how-to golf guides with him, and his attempts to emulate the advice are especially good. Plimpton was a hacker, fairly inept at the game, and knows it. This is his story of briefly rubbing elbows, or golf carts, with the big names of 1960s golf, and it's most enjoyable. ( )

George Plimton was a journalist who liked to get into the thick of things when writing about his subjects. When composing articles for Sports Illustrated he played tennis, boxed with, and swam with professionals. Later he found himself pitching with the Yankees and throwing the football with the Detroit Lions. His involvement with professional golfers was no different when writing Bogey Man. He played as a participating amateur in the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am, the Lucky International, and the Bob Hope Desert Classic for a month. During that time he absorbed stories about the professional golf circuit, from the caddies to the fans and, the professional golfers and the game, of course. ( )
