.O.pO r O. w,btlrrt,&apos;,,'tqt"I . 9. "lqd, mqqq([ .vhb,r'il I'TTS{''). 'ffqA-) - 0O, CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 3 - December 9, 1999 - 91 The 1999 holiday gift golf book selections It's time once again for holiday gift book buying. Here's a fresh batch of selections for golfers of all types. I give each one the Three-Flag rating: Buy these books this week- end for gift-giving this holiday season! George Peper, Editor-in-Chief of GOLF Magazine, wrote "The Story of Golf" (TV Books, Inc., $45 SRP). This is the companion piece to the fine Public Broadcast- ing Service (PBS) documentary that ran earlier this year. Peper put together a well-done collection of stories, pictures and anecdotes, covering the history of golf from its earliest beginnings to the present. Its outsize dimen- sions and at least 200 illustrations make this a coffee table book, but with more than enough substance to go beyond the normal meaning of the term. The publishers really meant it when they came up with the title to David Gould's new book, "Spectacular Golf," (Hugh Lanter Levin Assocs., $75 SRP). This classic coffee table book in- cludes huge, beautiful photo- graphs that spread out to nearly four feet from end to end. GOLF Fritz Schranck The Golf Digest Magazine pho- tographers who shot these pic- tures should be pleased with the care the publisher took to make their work so stunning. The usual suspects are there, such as Augusta National, Shin- necock Hills and St. Andrews. In addition, however, new courses sfich as Ben Crenshaw's Sand Hills in Nebraska also provide a visual feast for the winter-bound golfer. Golf history buffs and those with a keen interest in golf course design will love "The Golden Age of Golf Design" by Geoff Shackelford (Sleeping Bear Press, $65 SRP). This is a beautifully produced book of vintage photo- graphs, drawings and biographi- cal sketches of the early masters of golf course architecture. There are also several full-color prints of gorgeous oil paintings by Mike Miller, former Director of Golf at Riviera Country Club. Even the non-golfers in my family were deeply impressed by this one. A good little stocking stuffer is "Golf Rules Plain and Simple" (HarperRe- source, $10.95 SRP). Mark Russell, a PGA Tour of- ficial and for- mer club pro, put together a practical primer on more than 35 common rules prob- lems, helped by popular golf writer John Andrisani. Each sec- tion includes a short description of a typical situation, the common mistakes made and the correct way to handle it. For something a bit more fun, take a look at "The Complete Office Golf" (Workman, $14.95 SRP). In deadpan prose, this hu- morous concoction is an instruc- tional manual for playing golf literally in the office using a mix of standard golf equip- ment and routine office supplies. The 100 pages or so include 12- color cardstock pages, nine of which are punch-out, actual size golf holes. Readers also obtain an official Office Golf Association membership card and bag tag. "Office Golf" is a nice gag gift for golfers who can't yet retire from the job that keeps them off the golf course. For golfers who are either re- tired or won the lottery, and there- fore wouldn't be interested in Of- rice Golf, the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" (Harry Abrams, $49.50) should have enormous appeal. Brian McCallen, a GOLF Mag- azine senior editor, gives a de- tailed guide to 100 top U.S. golf courses open to visitors. As with that magazine's regular series, readers will learn what it takes to play the courses. They also re- aus00ful gui00otoac00ommo 6F dations, dining, side trips and nearby places to play. N[ ntiin grace this large format offering, which should be routinely updated in later edi- tions to be really useful for golfers blessed with wanderlust and serious dis- posable income. Have a wonderful holiday sea- son and enjoy shopping for your favorite golfer! SHORT PUTTS - You can read about Fritz's handicap stroke allo- cation service for golf courses at <>.

Jaguars Continued from page 90 tion. "To come back the way we did was great, but there's no greater pain than lost opportunities," Ravens coach Brian Billick said. "I said I didn't want to lose by three, so I guess I got my wish." Brunell immediately responded, completing five of six passes for 67 yards on a 12-play, 78-yard drive. James Stewart scored on a four-yard run before Brunell found Jimmy Smith for two points to cap the scoring. On a Raven defense that is sec- ond in the league and loaded with big-time players, no one could protect the cushion and bring home the upset victory. Baltimore hosts the 9-2 Ten- nessee Titans this Sunday, Dec. 5, while Jacksonville hosted the Ko- Raven place kicker Matt Stover was good on this field goal attempt in the first half. rdell Stewart and Bill Cowher show and the rest of the Velvet Curtain on Thursday, Dec. 2.
