Sir Richard Gusset (a.k.a. Uncle Dickie) and the members of Scrought's Wood Golf Club in Northumberland compete against the McGregor clan for the prized St. Andrew Finger, the petrified middle finger of St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland.

Holtzbrinck
Readers of Golf Magazine will immediately recognize Major General (ret.) Sir Richard Gussett, the riotous imaginary uncle featured in David Feherty's column "Sidespin." In this first volume of his misadventures, Gussett sets his sights on the most prestigious prize in golf, the petrified middle finger of St. Andrew, patron saint of Scotland. Presiding over Scrought's Wood, the world's most cantankerous golf club, Gussett must motivate his merry band of members through the battles with incontinence, single malt Scotch, peculiar handicaps, and a litany of other unmentionable afflictions in order to seize the finger in a "friendly" competition with their ancient rivals, the dreaded and notorious MacGregor clan.

Feherty's fanatical fan base will rejoice, the driving range addicted will tee off, the USGA will have "no comment," and anyone who loves the game or knows someone who loves the game will not be able to resist Feherty's storytelling and golfing gravitas.
