“The harder I practice, the luckier I get.”
The above quote is a great way to sum up my golf game, but it’s also an interesting study in the origin of authorship. At various times this saying has been attributed to golfers like Gary Player, Hubie Green, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino and more. Ethel Merman is noted as inventing a version of the saying, even the author of the Wizard of Oz has a version of the statement.
If you find this interesting I invite you to visit Quote Investigator, where you will find a history of the use of this term.
Everyone have a great weekend. I’ll see you on the green.
