"Golfers. Believe me, they are. I'm a golfer. Every time my opponents disappear behind a tree or in the rough, they forget to count strokes. I buy the drinks every time. Everyone gives me the horse laugh. Honesty doesn't pay. Not when playing golf."
KLMBERLY WLSS APPLETON,
"There's no difference. Not that we mean to lie. The thrill of doing and then of retelling becomes an automatic exaggeration. I've had luck in both sports. In golf I hit three sand traps and made a five par. And I caught a 1,525-pound black marlin, a world record."
FRED A. NEUBERG POUND RIDGE,
"Golfers. I should know. I'm ex-president of the Hackensack Golf Club and a Canada Miramichi River salmon fisherman. The golfer talks in hundreds of yards. The fisherman talks in inches. I saw a folder, 'How to Win at Golf.' Inside was one word, 'Cheat.' "
BILL KLAESS ROCKVILLE CENTRE,
"The true golfer never lies. He bends over backwards to obey the rules. He'll call a penalty shot on himself. The run-of-the-mill fisherman, however, is more apt to lie or exaggerate. Water does magnify the size of 'the one that got away.' "
NORMA SEWARD RICHMOND HILL,
"Golfers, the male variety. Most men are liars, anyway. The 'line' they give you. One tried to court me with stories about his golf. He said he belonged to 'The Hole-in-One Club.' Is there a 100% honest golfer? If so, he's the man a girl should marry."
