I just read Golfing Wit, a tiny, little book of quips and quotes I found when visiting my parent’s house last week.
Many of the observations weren’t the best, tending toward banality or sexism, but there were a few sharp and glittering gems.
Here are ten I liked:
The number of tees in your bag is always less than 3 or more than 600.
Winning isn't about making a lot of great shots. It's about making very few bad ones.
My most notable trait is snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory.
Golf tips are like aspirin. One may do you good but if you swallow the whole bottle you'll be lucky to survive.
Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser.
All of us believe that our good shots are the norm, and our bad ones aberrations.
Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees.
Is it any accident that 'God' comes just before 'golf' in the dictionary?
My career started slowly, then tapered off.
The only thing I ever learned from losing was that I don't like it.
