From Evangeline, Bradbury Fisher's fifth wife and a notorious 'golfing giggler', to poor Rollo Podmarsh whose game was so unquestionably inept that 'he began to lose his appetite and would moan feebly at the sight of a poached egg', the game of golf, its players and their friends and enemies are here shown in all their comic glory. One of Wodehouse's funniest books, The Heart of Goof is a collection of peerlessly comic short stories.

A collection of golf stories from the celebrated satirist: “A delight. Wodehouse’s drives . . . were deadly accurate when writing about the game.” —TheBoston Globe P. G. Wodehouse, Britain’s beloved satirist and author of the famous Jeeves series, often said he wished he’d spent more time playing golf and less “fooling about writing stories and things.” Happily for all of us, the prolific writer often took his pen to the green. In Fore!, Wodehouse expert D. R. Bensen has collected a dozen pieces to delight golfers, those who know them, and even those who have never basked in the ecstasy of a perfect putt—into a collection by this great humorist that is “almost as much fun as playing a round” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). “Sure to please Wodehouse readers and re-readers, even those who’ve never sliced or putted.” —Kirkus Reviews

Wodehouse established himself as not only a fond satirist of the foppish upper class, but one of the greatest comic voices in all literature. Including stories featuring all his finest creations, including Jeeves, Lord Emsworth of Blandings, Ukridge and the disreputable members of the Drones club, this collection is an ideal introduction to the writer described by Douglas Adams as ‘the greatest comic writer ever’.
