Golf for Beginners-And Others (Classic Reprint)

by Marshall Whitlatch | 05 May 2017
Category: General Sport
Synopsis
Excerpt from Golf for Beginners-and Others "When I get very old and feeble and my joints creak and I begin to find croquet too strenuous a pastime, then I may take up golf." This was my answer to the first invitation I had to play this game. I felt that to ask me to take up a game suitable only for mollycoddles, as it then seemed to me, was asking too much; I, who had been intensely interested in athletic sports ever since I could remember - baseball, football, rowing and what not. I can remember how my lip curled with disdain when I saw the red coats and knickerbockers. It was up in Connecticut, a few miles below New Haven, at a summering place called Woodmont, that the above remarks were made, and it was to a young lady that they were addressed. However, I was inveigled into watching the game. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
