Synopsis

Golf has undergone a titanium revolution: new materials, new techniques, and new approaches have radically reshaped the simple act of swatting a little ball towards a distant target. The endlessly inquisitive golfer-which is to say, all of them-has had nowhere to turn to get any sense of WHY their shots go slicing into the distance, WHY they should care about the properties of titanium, WHY putts tend to break to the west, WHY swinging harder doesn't necessarily make the ball go further, and WHY they can hit the ball like a dream one day and like an orang-utan the next.



At last, John Zumerchik, a passionate golfer and inquisitive science writer and editor, explores and explains the little details that make golf such a maddening, fascinating, and tantalizing pursuit. NEWTON ON THE TEE covers all of the game's hot topics.



With a firm grasp of both his subject and his seven-iron, Zumerchik takes the reader through all these topics and more, in an entertaining and enlightening work that crosses the questing appeal of Golf in the Kingdom with the coherence and clarity of popular science works from Cosmos to Chaos.
