From the cover: “The royal and ancient game of golf has never been so enjoyably portrayed as in the pages of Punch. This sparkling collection of cartoons, verses, sketches, stories and articles covers all aspects of the game. A. P. Herbert describes ‘the habitually gentle man who may become in a bunker a violent unmannerly oaf’; E. S. Turner wonders whether courting couples, when stationary, should be regarded as loose impediments or immovable obstructions; and Miles Kington offers fresh definitions of the ‘awkward lie’ and ‘the completed round’ (when everyone has paid for a set of drinks).”
