|KOLF No. 13, Quotes|
Bobby Jones, arguably the best golfer that ever lived, said such things as ... "Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots, you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies." This is the quote I started this piece of artwork with.I admire Bobby Jones not only because he was the most successful amateur golfer that ever lived. He exemplified the principles of sportsmanship and fair play. The most widely known incident - he called a two-stroke penalty on himself, and lost a tournament by one stroke. I believe golf is played against yourself or "old man par" as Jones said.
The golf hole pictured here is based on Greenhill's Hole No. 2, a long par five. It may be slightly downhill, but is always difficult to reach in 3 shots, as it is guarded by 4 sand traps.
