The Snake in the Sandtrap (and Other Misadventures on the Golf Tour) by Lee Trevino and Sam Blair is a 166-page hardcover published by Holt, Rinehart and Winston, New York, 1985, stated first edition. The book has green foil lettering along the spine and an impressed image of a golfer on the front cover. The cover, spine, binding and pages are in good condition. The dust jacket is price clipped with very slight rubbing.
Humor, humanity, and wit characterize Lee Trevino, one of sport's international superstars. The winner of the 1984 Open, still a top player (see copyright date), and now television's major commentator on golf, Lee (with the help of his friend and award-winning writer Sam Blair) shares his favorite anecdotes from the Tour with his millions of devoted fans.
Lee takes us to the major national and international tournaments and describes his favorite foursomes with kings, presidents, and fearsome bettors. He makes us laugh with him from tee to cup while observing the funny bounces along the fairways and frog hair in between.
If your desire is to get behind the TV screen to rub shoulders with the game's greatest players, you could have no better guide than this little straight-ahead golfer and humorist who eats, drinks, talks, and breathes the ancient game of golf.
