Normal Sport 1 Digital Version


Normal Sport I is an irreverent (but hopefully insightful!) look at the year in golf in 2021. A collection of the most absurd but also the most wonderful moments of another indelible season.

It’s an attempt to contextualize what we saw and experienced--like Phil winning the PGA or Bryson going to war with a lake--and document it all in one place for the sake of both enjoyment and posterity. So much happened in such a compressed amount of time, and this is an attempt to walk back through it all and determine which moments were the funniest, most meaningful and most important.

Some frequently asked questions
Why are you selling on a website and not on Amazon?

There are a few reasons, but the primary ones are 1. Amazon takes a preposterous cut of the revenue on digital books 2. This was mostly meant to be a standalone digital product because of how rich the illustrations are (it’s difficult to format it in such a way to make it pop on Kindle like it does as a PDF) and 3. I wanted to custom mail every hardcover copy and let my kids earn some money for helping in the process.

Can I read it on my phone?

You can do that, although reading a PDF on your phone is a bit more straining because of how small the text is. This project -- because of how rich the illustrations are -- was always meant more bigger devices like iPads.

How do I receive my digital copy?

At checkout, you should get a download link (you may have to refresh your browser). If you don't see it, a download link will also be in your inbox.

What if I can’t figure out how to download this thing?

You can email me at

Can I gift this to someone?

The best way to do this is to just put their email in at checkout and pay for it. They'll receive a download link to their email, and you'll always be the person who introduced them to golden calves jokes about Phil and Vince Carter GIFs.

Are you worried about people buying one copy and sending it to 100 people?

Oh I suppose. Perhaps I'm too trusting of folks, but I just presume most people will care enough about it to purchase it for themselves. If you work hard enough, you can steal most digital products. I'll never win that war. But I'm grateful for everyone who appreciates the time, effort and energy that were put into this project enough to throw $20 at it.

Who did the illustrations?

Jason Page. He’s incredible. Hire him if you have a project. You can find him on Twitter here.

What was the inspiration for this format?

Shea Serrano's excellent essays on The Office and Scrubs, which you can find here. He was the first person I recall saying, "Yo, I'm just going to make a digital book the way I want to make it." And of course, it was great.
