Original stories, original thoughts.

Lying Four is a collection of original stories about golf in the Deep South, from the perspective shared by most golfers: as a mediocre amateur. It’s not a rummage bin of the same recycled news articles that get aggregated by content factories. It’s not a race through some magazine’s Top 100 bucket list resorts. Lying Four is Southern golf, its people, its places, its events, its shortcomings, its perfections, and why they matter.
