Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into an even smaller hole with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose.

- Winston Churchill

On the golf course, a man may be the dogged victim of inexorable fate, be struck down by an appalling stoke or tragedy, become the hero of an unbelievable melodrama, or the clown in a sidesplitting comedy - any of these within a few hours.

  - Bobby Jones

Happiness is a long walk with a putter in your hand.

  - Wayne Grady

Golf is more fun than walking naked in a strange place, but not much.

  - Buddy Hackett

Serenity is knowing that your worse shot is still pretty good.

  - Johnny Miller

If you pick up a golfer and hold it close to your ear, like a conch shell, and listen - you will hear an alibi.

  - P. G. Wodehouse.
