"Most of us golfers love our putters, for a round or two. Then we hate them." So begins The Flat Stick, Noah Liberman's witty look at the relationship that has bedeviled every golfer, pro or amateur, since the beginning of the game. What makes a new putter seem so magical? Why is a four-foot putt so scary? Why do kids putt so well? Do you control the putter, or does it control you? In a humorous and anecdotal style, Liberman answers these compelling questions -- and more. This fully illustrated book profiles the putters behind some of the greatest putts in history, explains how clubmakers convince you it's time for a new flat stick, shows that pros are even more neurotic about their putters than you are, and chronicles some of the most hilarious and unusual ways golfers have said good-bye to their putters. Liberman also delves into putter history, putter collecting, and more. Every golfer knows that sometimes your putter is your best friend and sometimes it's your worst enemy. It's the club you swing the most but trust the least. It's the club you invest your deepest hopes in -- then break over your knee. In The Flat Stick, Liberman covers all aspects of this club, and delivers a fascinating account of all things putter.
