As for the story linked above; well, it takes a helluva good writer to make me enjoy reading about a game of golf. Ian Fleming, P.G. Wodehouse, George Macdonald Fraser, and Mervyn J. Huston are the only other authors I can think of who've managed it. Shvartsman has now turned that foursome into a fivesome by adding a few new twists to the game. ;-)
Edited to add: This guy is also the reason an anthology of coffee-themed fantasy stories exists ... IMO this alone is reason to elevate him to at least demi-godhood.
