A superb PG Wodehouse story where aged golfer Sir Hugo Drake falls for the shot-making abilities of a beautiful woman doctor called, you’ve guessed it, Dr Sally Smith.
The thing is his good-for-nothing nephew Bill Bannister falls for her too, but not for golfing reasons, whilst intending to ask Mrs Higginbotham to marry him.
Mrs Higginbotham was the first of four wives of Lord Tidmouth.
Lord Tidmouth and Bill Bannister are good friends.
To this background, PG Wodehouse writes a near farce of excellent proportions which moves along at a cracking pace.
Dr Sally is none too impressed with Bill Bannister as she regards him a lazy layabout until she finds he knows how to run a dairy farm as well as having an encyclopaedic knowledge of the bacteria found in milk.
Sir Hugo enthuses about Dr Sally’s insights into how to grip a golf club and where to place one’s weight when putting.
Lord Tidmouth and Mrs Higginbotham also find happiness.
