Introduced in Dan Jenkinsâ€™s previous uproarious novel of the pro golf tour, The Money-Whipped Steer-Job Three-Jack Give-Up Artist, Bobby Joe Grooves is now forty-four and still without a win in a major championship. A student of golf lore, Bobby Joe is well aware that only a small group of stars have ever won a major at his age or older, and among them are such immortals as Nicklaus, Boros, Irwin, and Trevino. Itâ€™s now or never for Bobby Joe, and excuse him for thinking that his chances are slim and none.So itâ€™s off to the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, and the rest of the PGA Tour for Bobby Joe, whoâ€™s leaving behind the prospect of a third ex-wife. On the golf courses heâ€™ll face familiar competitors such as Knut Thorssun and Cheetah Farmer, but the rival who may loom the largest is the gameâ€™s newest child star, nineteen-year-old Scott Pritchard. His talents are the talk of the Tourâ€”so is his arroganceâ€”and so, by the way, is his stunning mom, Gwendolyn, a shapely adorable woman who captures Bobby Joeâ€™s full attention and threatens not to let go. Long revered by his peers as one of the worldâ€™s best sportswriters, and beloved by readers for such classics as Semi-Tough and Dead Solid Perfect, Dan Jenkins is at the top of his form in Slim and None. Itâ€™s packed with authentic insider gems about each of the majors and hilarious sketches of many of the charactersâ€”touring pros, officials, media, agents, caddies, and ladiesâ€”who inhabit this outrageous and endearing world of sports.
