If only there was a sentencing chapter....

1610058_bigI might be able to justify buying this book as a business expense.  Instead, I will just use the fact that we are only a few hours away from the start of the greatest golf event of the season as an excuse to plug what looks to be a cool little book about the intersection of golf and law, "The Little Green Book of Golf Law."  Here is part of the publisher's blurb about the book:

John H. Minan writes on how violating "the law" of golf — as opposed to the rules that govern the game — can have serious consequences.  You don't have to be a lawyer to enjoy this book, which combines two great passions: law and golf.

Each chapter examines a different set of facts and involves an actual case. The chapters explore a wide array of legal issues — Tiger Woods' right of publicity, personal injury claims for negligence and products liability, contract disputes involving hole-in-one contests and golf cart rentals, a forfeiture claim under the Endangered Species Act, the Internal Revenue Service's litigation against a taxpayer over tax deductions for golf expenses, patent and trade mark disputes, and more.

Fitting the times, "Hole 2" of this book is titled "The Masters of Augusta (Tiger wins at Augusta but scores a triple bogey in the federal courts)."  And, speaking of times, as detailed here, Tiger starts his pursuit of his fifth Green Jacket at 10:45am on Thursday, and he is paired with the reigning US Open champion.
