74,907.  Very simply he brings the club head around his shoulder into it.  The sound has a hollowness, singleness he hasn’t heart before.  His arms force his head up and his ball is hung way out, lunarly pale against the beautiful black blue of storm clouds, his grandfather’s colour stretched dense across the east.  It recedes along a line straight as a ruler-edge.  Stricken; sphere, star, speck.  It hesitates, and Rabbit thinks it will die, but he’s fooled, for the ball makes this hesitation the ground of a final leap; with a kind of visible sob takes a last bite of space before vanishing in falling.  ‘That’s it!’  he cries and, turned to Eccles with a smile of aggrandizement, repeats, ‘That’s it.’  John Updike, Rabbit, Run 1960

74,915.  A decision of the courts decided that the game of golf may be played on Sunday, not being a game within the view of the law, but being a form of moral effort.  (Golf & Sunday & Sabbath)  Stephen Leacock, Over the Footlights 1923

 

 

74,916.  The only time my prayers are not answered is on the golf course.  (Golf & Prayer)  Billy Graham

74,924.  Perhaps none has been as exciting as the 1977 Open – the now legendary duel in the sun ... Jack Nicholas and the young pretender Tom Watson ... The final day would effectively be a shoot-out between the two best players in the world ... Going into the penultimate hole they were all-square again ... Revered as arguably the greatest game of golf ever played.  Hall of Fame: Rollercoasters

 

 

74,923.  Swash-Buckling Seve and it just seems to sum him up so well ... He brought golf to the masses.  Sarah Stirk, golf journalist

 

 

74,945.  How straight it flew, how long it flew,

It clear’d the rutty track

And soaring, disappeared from view
