Ted Bishop's 'UNFRIENDED' Exposes Golf World

FORMER PGA OF AMERICA PRESIDENT Ted Bishop has published a book about his two-year tenure (minus 29 days) called UNFRIENDED: Power Brokers, Political Correctness & Hypocrisy in Golf.

The title says a lot and no doubt sets the tone for what's to come. Published by Classics of Golf, here's their book description:
Twice named by Golf World magazine as a Newsmaker of the Year as the President of the PGA, Bishop was impeached with 29 days left in his term by the PGA for remarks he made on social media which it deemed to be 'sexist' in nature. 
This new book, UNFRIENDED: Power Brokers, Political Correctness & Hypocrisy in Golf, is Bishop's opportunity to share his eventful journey for the first time ever. Hang on as UNFRIENDED takes you on a wild ride with some of golf's biggest events and personalities. UNFRIENDED exposes many things about many people as it takes you inside to the exclusive world of golf. 
Many viewed Bishop's two-year term as PGA President in 2013-14 as one of the most eventful in the 100-year history of the association. Golf World's Jaime Diaz says it best, "Ted Bishop's progressive tenure as president of the PGA of America seemed to pack 10 years into two and raised the profile and prestige of the organization."
The book is available in hardcover and Kindle editions at the usual places.
