Golf Quotes

Eighteen holes of match or medal play will teach you more about your foe than will 18 years of dealing with him across a desk.

~Grantland Rice

Henry Grantland Rice was an early 20th-century American sportswriter known for his elegant prose. His writing was published in newspapers around the country and broadcast on the radio.  I believed he penned the “Four Horsemen” of Notre Dame.

“Outlined against the blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again.  In dramatic lore they were known as Famine, Pestilence, Destruction, and Death.  These are only aliases.  Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley, and Layden.”
