I was over at Barnes & Noble a couple of months back and, like a true fanatic, was perusing the golf section and I came across a book I had to take home. "The Sweetest Game," by Cal Brown is a collection of anecdotes that serve to instruct and humor anyone who loves the greatest game.
In his chapter, "Golfers Are Born Losers" Brown quotes the proverb that says: "God gave us music that we might pray without words" and goes on to say, "The Scots gave us golf that we might suffer without guilt." Everyone who has played golf for any length of time knows what Brown is talking about and that is what makes this book so much fun. It's golf in the raw - the struggles of the greatest players in history as an example for the weekend hack.
