About the book:

"Golf," observed Mark Twain, "is a good walk spoiled." Of course, golfers know it's more than that. It's "a game in which you try to put a small ball in a small hole with implements singularly unsuited to the purpose" (Winston Churchill). The wit and trenchancy of that esteemed twosome gets some pretty good competition in the pages of The Quotable Golfer by hackers and pros alike: P.G. Wodehouse, Bobby Jones, Lee Trevino, Joyce Wethered, Grantland Rice, Bob Hope, Gerald Ford, Tiger Woods, and Lee Trevino all make the cut with some pretty memorable mots. It is, however, an anonymous contribution that best manages to capture golf's unique mix of genteel etiquette with life-and-death sensibility. It comes in the form of a wonderful rhyme teed up when a course was being built around the grave of one Sarah Wallace: "Show respect to Sarah/You golfers passing by;/She's the only person on this course/Who can't improve her lie." No improvement possible on the verse either. --Jeff Silverman
