Chick Farley is an obnoxious golf pro at an exclusive golf club. Farley never did make it on the big money circuit; it was his wife, a former real pro golfer, who did. Now, he's just living off her past glory. He's also supplementing his income with a little blackmail enterprise calculated to help him keep his job as local pro.

One night, Farley discovers that someone has been stealing from the pro shop. He calls club member Hamilton Burger at his home to tell him about the theft. While Farley's on the phone, someone takes a sand wedge to his skull. Perry is called on to defend Farley's assistant, Jim Harrell, who had motive, opportunity, and a mean trap shot.
