The unconquerable frustration of golf, in which every player competes largely against himself and almost always loses, brings out a rich vein of unquenchable wit and fatalistic humor. Enhanced by historical and modern photographs, this hole-in-one gift book collects quotations that complete the phrase "Golf is . . ." Incisive observations from duffers and pros alike include remarks by P. G. Wodehouse, G. K. Chesterton, Winston Churchill, Ben Hogan, Tommy Bolt, and many others.
