Reseña del editor:

The indispensable book for the golfer and golf 'widow'!Few sports have provoked such a wealth of writing as golf and in this sparkling collection of quotations the reader will find apposite and witty comments on every aspect of the game and its players.Of course, it has its critics for whilst President Taft found that 'golf' is in the interest of good health and good manners, P.G. Wodehose commented cynically "Can you name me a single case where devotion to this pestilential pastime has done a man any practical good?"'Another form of cynicism is that time-honoured saying "Is my friend in the bunker or is the bastard on the green?" of Mark Twain's remark 'It's good sportsmanship not to pick up lost balls whilst they are still moving."From the dour comment of Sir Walter Simpson ('There are good golfers with spectacles, with one eye, with one leg, even with one arm') to the modesty of Robert de Vicenzo('I just come over to see my friends and I win ze bloody championship') this engrossing collection provides a feast of entertainment.Adorning the text are delightful illustrations which portray the sportsman ship, the competitiveness and the humour of the game which has so succinctly been summed up by Sir Walter Simpson: 'In golf while there is life there is hope.'
