As its front cover accurately states, “Life’s an Unplayable Lie” is 28 years’ worth of unbelievable, true, golf stories as told by Angelo Spagnolo, “America’s Worst Avid Golfer,” including the most incredible one…how he recorded the highest documented score, 257, in the over 555 year history of golf…including a 66 on one hole!!!” With a foreword by “Golf Digest” magazine’s Bob Carney, the story is divided into three parts; Part One, “A How-To Guide to Becoming the Worst Golfer Ever” goes from telling of his many early sports failures all the way to the epic 1985 “Worst Avid Golfers” Tournament.

From there, Part Two, “Life as America’s Worst Avid Golfer” describes the incredible fallout from becoming the only documented worst golfer in the history of the game, including amazing occurences that took place on golf courses around the world. As an unexpected conclusion, in Part Three, “Detailing Life’s Ups and Downs,” the author describes in riveting detail the results of another amazing attempt at once again slaying his own personal nemesis, the 17th hole at the TPC Sawgrass… this time in front of the cameras of the “Golf Channel”.
