Every golfer knows the feeling: Anything that can go right will go WAY, WAY right. To hit a truly awful shot, mere incompetence is not enough…you really need an audience. Back in the early days of the game, when the first rules were written and the basics of etiquette formulated, there appeared a series of shrewd and rueful observations about golf that were nearly always attributed to a mysterious individual named Murphy. As time passed, these canny precepts found their way into the culture at large—but the roots of Murphy’s Laws clearly lie in this sport that’s tailor-made to expose the fundamental malevolence of the cosmos. Here they are, collected—for all lovers of the links to ponder when they’re in the rough!
