As one of the oldest and greatest sports of all time, golf has been the subject of a wealth of humorous depictions. No other sport has been more parodied, satirized, or used as a setting than golf.
Golf in the Comic Strips uses the perceptive minds of the world's foremost cartoonists to capture the wild and woolly, the mysterious and rewarding allure of golf-what it does to its players and what it leaves them in return. Each strip is unique and will leave the golfer and the non-golfer with an extra appreciation for the game, as well as some howls of laughter at the folly of it all.
