Introduced in Dan Jenkins'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. It's now or never for Bobby Joe, and excuse him for thinking that his chances are slim and none.
So it's off to the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, and the rest of the PGA Tour for Bobby Joe, who's leaving behind the prospect of a third ex-wife. On the golf courses he'll face familiar competitors such as Knut Thorssun and Cheetah Farmer, but the rival who may loom the largest is the game's newest child star, nineteen-year-old Scott Pritchard. His talents are the talk of the Tour--so is his arrogance--and so, by the way, is his stunning mom, Gwendolyn, a shapely adorable woman who captures Bobby Joe's full attention and threatens not to let go.
Long revered by his peers as one of the world'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. It's packed with authentic insider gems about each of the majors and hilarious sketches of many of the characters--touring pros, officials, media, agents, caddies, and ladies--who inhabit this outrageous and endearing world of sports.
From the Publisher:
Now forty-four and still without a win in a major championship, Bobby Joe Grooves continues his quest for success, confronting both familiar competitors and all-new rivals, including teenage phenomenon Scott Benson, an arrogant young man with a gorgeous mother who soon captures Bobby Joe's attention.
