Description
No one knows exactly when the first golf quotation was spoken; nonetheless, we can be very sure it was unprintable. The game is a source of endless study, endless fascination, and endless frustration -- which has led to an endless pursuit of wisdom about how to play it better.

"It doesn't matter if you look like a beast before or after the hit, as long as you look like a beauty at the moment of impact." - Seve Ballesteros.
"Nobody ever swung a club too slowly." - Bobby Jones.

In the game's 500 years of history, it has drawn the attention of kings and commoners, pros and con men, stylists and butchers, bag-toters and sandbaggers. All have had something to say about the game, its implements, or the impossibility of ever plumbing its inner depths.

"The trouble that most of us find with the modern matched sets of clubs is that they don't really seem to know any more about the game than the old ones did." - Robert Browning.
"If profanity had an influence on the flight of the ball, the game would be played far better than it is." - Horace Hutchinson.

Randy Voorhees has taken on the daunting task of choosing the best, most helpful, and most entertaining quotations about the game of golf. From Penick to Trevino, from Jones to Nicklaus, from Mackenzie and Wodehouse to Updike and McLean, all the greats of the game are here, with thoughts that will enlighten, entertain, and ensure lower scores.

"When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls." - Henry Beard.
"Hit the ball up to the hole...You meet a better class of person there." - Ben Hogan.

So read, skim, dip, and savor. Your next round of golf will be more enjoyable, and your nineteenth-hole banter will be vastly improved when you casually drop into the conversation, As Hogan Said...
