Reviews

for golfers & gamblers

(3 stars)

At least half of these stories as of no interest unless you are a golfer, or enjoy hearing about idiotic gambling schemes. Since I find golf boring, and I find gambling an unfortunate addiction instead of a "flutter," I was able to enjoy only half of these stories.

always terriific
