Hammer is a way to wager on a golf match. The game has evolved through generations in several different directions. This manuscript will cover multiple ways to play Hammer but certainly not all. References will be made throughout this writing to "our game" which simply means the game I prefer and the reasons why. I have been asked many times if I could put together a list of the rules to "our game" as it has become very popular. I often get calls from players at other clubs asking for a rule interpretation. Hammer becomes a game within a game. At the time of this writing, I am a 12.5 Index golfer but I am a scratch at Hammer.

If you have a regular group of buddies that you play golf with I highly recommend playing Wolf Hammer the way CW plays it. The teams change on every hole and the advantage can swing from one team to the next several times each hole. You can have a group with a scratch golfer and a 20 handicap and both will enjoy the game. I recommend you buy the book because it explains all the intricacies of the betting. The more your group plays the more fun you will have with it, and you can win the $6 price of the book back on one hole:)
The greatest of this book lies not in the content, but in the sheer genius of how to definitively win an argument of great consequence. Whilst CW's opponent in rule making, Lindsay, prefers to win his argument with a higher volume of air expelled through his vocal reed, CW has taken to the pen. It seems the pen is mightier than the mouth in addition to the sword...
having been a member at several country clubs, I thought we played "real' WOLF, but this C.W. has taken it to new heights. The person that reads and masters the art and strategies of hammering, beavering, and that pesky Aardvark can really get into the pockets of his playing group. Can add lots of fun to a two dollar "wolf game". A must read and study.
