I found this treasure during my honeymoon travels in Costa Rica, in a beach town called Jaco.

Synopsis: Golf has led Wiren to walk on the Great Wall of China, in the tulip gardens of Holland, up the Tobel in Switzerland, around the Coliseum in Italy and within the royal grounds in Denmark; to enjoy a sauna in Finland, eat sauerkraut and dumplings in the Czech Republic, teach to beauty pagent contestants in Curacau, chase dingoes in the Australian outback, sing in Singapore, taste a Sacher torte in Austria, gamble at the casino in Monaco, fish the lakes of New Zealand, dine with geishas in Japan, and sail the Mediterranean. In all of these exotic locales he has found something very familiar in the eyes of his hosts: a delight in the great game of golf. Wiren’s myriad encounters with that delight provide the experiences, stories, quotes, quips, and observations that make up the content of When Golf is a Ball. It’s an anecdote-filled mother lode of great golf lore.
