I felt sure it was a put-up job, but what could I say?

"I did not dare choose you for my partner, Mr. Smith," interposed Miss Dangerfield. "I know it is tiresome for a good player to go pottering around the links with women at his heels, and only suggested a game if you had no other engagements."

"Mr. Smith dare not plead another engagement," asserted Miss Ross, her dark eyes flashing a challenge. She is a lovely girl, but digs up the turf terribly.

"Smith has no game on. He has been over there talking for an hour," added Thomas, before I could say a word. I could have murdered him.

"I am delighted, and it is kind of you to ask me," I lied most effusively. "It is an easy game for us, Miss Dangerfield."

Mr. Smith tries his hand at the stock market.
Follow Mr. Smith, as he tries to balance all these and more.

It is a light story, very pleasant to read, especially, the main charater of Henry felt quite natural & this story greatly caught my interest. Worthy of attention story.
A great book! The play-by-play detail of golf games set in high society are exceptional. The love story line told from an avid golfer is a seldem seen insight into men's thoughts about love. Great book for a quick read on a rainy afternoon. It is light and humorous and can be recommended to any age group interested in a playful golf love story. Cute, simple, "G" rated.
