A Man married a sweet, innocent thing-only to discover she played a better game of golf than he did. All summer, she bested him. When he shot a seventy-eight, she shot a seventy-six. When he shot a seventy-six, she shot a seventy-four.

On Australia Day weekend, she had a 26-metre putt to sink across a sloping green to beat him by a stroke, “Oh, my God,” she said, “if I sink this putt, I’ll just DIE.”

Her husband looked her right in the eye,

“It’s a Gimmie,” he said.

Malcolm Fraser, as Prime Minister, had his troubles at Royal Canberra merely trying to hit the ball.

It Seems that another Prime Minister, Billy Hughes, never liked losing one.

“The Little Digger” gained a reputation at the club as an indefatigable ball searcher.

In A book published to celebrate Royal Canberra’s jubilee in 1979 came this gem about Hughes.

“One of Billy’s partners, tired of waiting and searching with him, and having one and then another foursome pass through them, dropped an almost new ball into the rough and shouted, “Here you are Mr Hughes, here it is!”

“Billy having examined the ball carefully, replied, ‘No, that’s not it.’ Pocketed it, and resumed his search for another five minutes,’”

The legendary Australian Norman Von Nida’s temperament on the course was Vesuvian. Once in an Australian tournament, players were permitted to take a free drop away from a tree if the tree was no smaller than 2 metres. Von Nida’s ball rolled up against a tree and an official ruled he had to play it. Von Nida challenged the ruling and a tape measure was brought out. The tree proved to be 2 metres and 2.5 centimetres tall. Von Nida played the shot from against the tree. Then, furiously wielding his iron like an axe, he chopped the tree to the ground.
