Anyone For Tee brings us golf quotes galore!
Anyone For Tee is my third-favorite website, after TravelGolf.com and BuffaloGolfer, of course. While trolling their veddy English pages, I stumbled against a wall of golfing quotations that outduels any other compilation of appropriately-witty citations.
There is one quote among the multitude that is so earnestly sweet, so reassuring, that I will use it as my mantra in 2006. It was worth the effort to uncover; I had to scroll all the way back to September 3rd to find it. It is attributed to the great Dr. Cary Middlecoff, twice Open champion of the United States of America. Renowned for his accuracy into the green, he commented, “Concentrate on hitting the green. The cup will come to you.”
A month earlier, on August 4th, the great poet Robert Browning reminds us that “There are three ways of learning golf: by study, which is the most wearisome; by imitation, which is the most fallacious; and by experience, which is the most bitter.” Truer words about the demands of improvement were never uttered, or written, for that matter.
And third, on April 25th, you will find “It is nevertheless a game of considerable passion, either of the explosive type, or that which burns inwardly and sears the soul.” From the mouth of Bobby Jones, if we play the game with explosions or internal searing, then we truly know and love the game.
So head on over to Anyone For Tee? and find the quote that best explains your golfing mood. Store up a few extra for the long road ahead.
