After 25 years of playing golf, mostly as a single, Par-Man has accumulated quite a collection of stories about the characters who roam the links. Par-Man has one mission; a round at par or better. If that looks like it won't happen for Par-Man, then he is obligated to help the others in the group achieve golf immortality. Par-Man is not a professional (not even close), nor are the other players in the book. They are Saturday golfers who just love the game. Every shot on every hole in this chronicle is true. Each reader will find a little bit of themselves in these tales. Maybe it will describe an actual meeting between you and Par-Man.
Of the tens of thousands of excursionists who every summer travel down by rail to Southend, there are few indeed who stop at Leigh, or who, once at Southend, take the trouble to walk three miles along the shore to the fishing village. It may be doubted, indeed, whether along the whole stretch of coastline from Plymouth to Yarmouth there is a village that has been so completely overlooked by the world. Other places, without a tithe of its beauty of position, or the attraction afforded by its unrivalled view over the Thames, from Gravesend to Warden Point, ever alive with ships passing up and down, have grown from fishing hamlets to fashionable watering-places; while Leigh remains, or at any rate remained at the time this story opens, ten years ago, as unchanged and unaltered as if, instead of being but an hour's run from London, it lay far north in Scotland.
