In Bad Lies, golf’s wittiest observer, photographer Charles Lindsay, celebrates the hazards and pitfalls of the game. Lindsay stakes out the diabolic border territories that encroach on golf courses–moon-crater bunkers, waist-high fescue grass, murky lake bottoms–to capture the unbelievable my-ball-went-where? moments that make the game so infuriating and so addictive for so many.
This hilarious follow-up to Lindsay’s popular Lost Balls (Little, Brown, 2005) features inspired and gorgeous color photographs, plus larger-than-life pictures of some of the world’s rarest–and oddest–golf balls. Texts include a foreword by outspoken golf commentator Gary McCord, definitions of the game’s offbeat terminology, and a meditation on the golf ball and the immortal soul.
