Product description

Norman Dabell, journalist, broadcaster and notorious jinx, has been covering the European golf circuit for over 20 years, though after reading this hilarious account of his mishaps, you may well come to wonder how he has managed to survive for so long.
Join Norman as he retraces his pursuit of the travelling circus of the golf world from St Andrews to Sun City, Malaga to Morocco, encountering all the great faces of the modern game.
Woods, Ballesteros, Faldo, Montgomerie, Westwood, Lyle, Woosnam, Langer, Olazabal, Garcia ...they have all made the headlines. Dabell is there to make sure they do - while also trying to survive another day.
Golf isn't really meant to be fun, they say, and sometimes it can be torture. But Dabell's rib-tickling (and his have been more than tickled) account will have even the most serious enthusiast in stitches. Fate has caused him many a tumble, broken bone and on-air gaffe, and Dabell's presence inside the ropes has been known to make even the toughest tour professional blanche.
However, he is a favourite of Major-winner Vijay Singh, who might never have got his career on the road if his ball had plummeted out of bounds instead of ricocheting onto the fairway off Dabell's head in Spain in 1990.
Singh made a birdie instead of a possible double-bogey, won the tournament and 10 years later went on to beat the world at Augusta.
This is just one of the thousand escapades that happened to a living, breathing 'Natural Hazard'.
