Golf is a science, the study of a lifetime,
in which you may exhaust yourself but never
your subject. It is a contest, a duel or melee,
calling for skill, courage, strategy and self-
control. It is a test of temper, a trial of
honor, a revealer of character. It affords
a chance to play the man and act the
gentleman. It means gong into God's
out-of-doors, getting close to nature, fresh
air, exercise, a sweeping away of mental
cobwebs, genius recreation of tired tissues.
It is a cure for care, an antidote to worry.
It includes companionship with friends,
social intercourse, opportunities for courtesy,
kindness and generosity to an opponent. It
promotes not only physical health, but moral force.
David R. Forgan 1899
