Product description

From the Back Cover

For those who read about golf as avidly as they play it and they number in the millions The Hole Is More Than the Sum of the Putts is a comprehensive and entertaining collection of the best of everything that has been written or said about the game. More than 2,500 quotes cover a variety of themes and topics from classic citations to literary links, from coarse rhymes to course notes, from anti-golf sneering to humorous cheering. Within these pages, professionals to amateur hackers, literary giants to semi-illiterates, the famous to the infamous, all share their observation on the game. Bringing together the best of golfing wit, wisdom, and wordplay, this collection belongs on every literate golfer's bookshelf.
