“Golf is like faith: it is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Arnold Haultain quoted in GOLFIRMATIONS– a book by Hugh O’Neil).
‘”…new putters have a way of quickly finding out who’s holding them.”
“…never bet anyone with a deep tan but whose left hand is the color of mayonnaise.”
I never knew about the tricky putt Jack Nicklaus gave Tony Jacklin in the1969 Ryder Cup. Or WHY?
Or about why Curtis Strange played at the Inverrary Classic with only four clubs (page 41).
Verse One from THE BATTLE HYMN OF THE HIGH HANDICAPPER:
“Mine eyes have seen the glory of some drive so straight and true,
And I’ve endured a botched up bunker-shot
that stopped atop my shoe.
I have triumphed. I have staggered. I have foozled quite a few.
My handicap won’t go down.” ****VERSES FOLLOW (pages 14, 15)
