The Book of Golf Quotations is simply the best collection of quoted wit and wisdom on the game of golf, the sport that has defined generations of politicians, footballers, celebrities and ordinary folk with plenty of spare time and a bewildering array of equipment and brightly-coloured clothing. And, of course, professional golfers. The range of quotes is as huge as a Tiger Woods tee shot, with quips from such diverse leading lights as Monty and Mad Mac, Wodehouse and Woosie, Churchill and Bobby Cruickshank, Bob Hope and Ben Hogan, George Bernard Shaw and Tom Shaw - and fully updated to include all the great quotes and comments of a new generation of golfing heroes from Seve to Sam Torrance, other famous people who play golf, and famous people who think golf courses should be abandoned and allowed to seed wild grasses and trees instead. With all the experience and gravitas of Jack Nicklaus, and as funny as a pair of Darren Clarke's trousers, The Book of Golf Quotations is the last word for every fan of frolics on the fairway, on the green or at the nineteenth hole.
