One example of a funny quote about golf is "I know I am getting better at golf because I am hitting fewer spectators," by Gerald R. Ford. Another example is "Golf is a game in which one endeavors to control a ball with implements ill adapted for the purpose," by Woodrow Wilson.
Gerald R. Ford was the 38th president of the United States and served from 1974 to 1977. Ford is the first and only person to serve as vice president and president of the United States without being elected for either position, as of 2016.
Woodrow Wilson was the 28th president of the United States and served from 1913 to 1921. Before becoming president, Wilson earned a PhD in political science and was president of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910.
The late comedian Bob Hope was also a big fan of golf. In 1960, he began hosting a tournament within the Professional Golfer's Association called the Bob Hope Classic. This tournament still exists, as of 2016. An example of a funny quote about golf from Bob Hope is "If you think golf is relaxing, you're not playing it right." Many of his quotes about golf refer to his own experience with the game.
