Wisdom of the Sages

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

A hungry dog hunts best. 
    ~ Lee Trevino

You can talk to a fade but a hook won't listen.. 
    ~ Lee Trevino

I was three over. One over a house, one over a patio, and one over a swimming pool. 
    ~ George Brett

Actually, the only time I ever took out a one-iron was to kill a tarantula. And I took a 7 to do that..

    ~ Kevin Costner

I don't fear death, but I sure don't like those three-footers for par. 
    ~ 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.. 
    ~ Chi Chi Rodriguez

The ball retriever is not long enough to get my putter out of the tree.

Swing hard in case you hit it.

I never pray on a golf course. Actually, the Lord answers my prayers everywhere except on the course.

If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play at it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf. 
    ~ Bob Hope

While playing golf today I hit two good balls. I stepped on a rake. 
    ~ Henry Youngman

If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball. 
    ~ Jack Lemmon

You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work. 
    ~ Lee Trevino

I'm not saying my golf game went bad, but if I grew tomatoes, they'd come up sliced.
