Caddie Confidential: Inside Stories from the Caddies of the PGA Tour

Caddie Confidential: Inside Stories from the Caddies of the PGA Tour

“Nobody knows the game of golf like a caddie. The caddie sees it all: the unrelenting dreams, jaw-dropping victories, and soul-crushing defeats. They rarely receive credit when things go right and frequently take the blame when things go wrong, yet they are the invisible backbone of the game. Behind every top-10 finish, every Tour championship, and every missed cut there is a guy pulling clubs for his pro. “He is part-time meteorologist, part-time mathematician, and full-time therapist.

The Provisional City: Los Angeles Stories of Architecture and Urbanism

The Provisional City: Los Angeles Stories of Architecture and Urbanism

The provisional city is one of constant erasure and eruption. Through what Dana Cuff calls a “convulsive urban act,” developers both public and private demolish an urban site and disband its inhabitants, replacing it with some vision of a better life that leaves no trace of the former structure. Architects bring their own utopian dreams to the process. In this book, Cuff examines those convulsions through two underestimated dimensions of architectural and urban form: scale and the politics of property. Scale is intimately tied to degree of disruption: the larger a project’s scale, the greater the upheaval. As both culture a
