Sam Snead:         “These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow.”

Paul Harvey:       “Golf is a game in which you yell “fore,” shoot six, and write down five.”

Tommy Bolt:       “Putting allows the touchy golfer two to four opportunities to blow a gasket in the short space of two to forty feet.”

Lee Trevino:        “I’m not saying my golf game went bad, but if I grew tomatoes, they’d come up sliced.”

Jack Lemmon:    “If you think it’s hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.”

Ken Harrelson:   “In baseball you hit your home run over the right-field fence, the left-field fence, the center-fence. Nobody cares. In golf everything has got to be right over second base.”

Chi Chi Rodriguez:    “After all these years, it’s still embarrassing for me to play on the American golf tour. Like the time I asked my caddie for a sand wedge and he came back ten minutes later with a ham on rye.”

Tommy Bolt, towards the end of one of his infamous high-volume, temperamental, club-throwing rounds, asked his caddy for a club recommendation for a shot of about 155 yards.
