Golf: 1972 News Cartoon

"Golf is a good walk spoiled." - frequently attributed to humorist Mark Twain - seems appropriate in describing the frustrated golfer in Doug's 1972 single-panel cartoon.

It's, likewise, applicable to Tiger Woods' current woes, headlined in USA Today recently.  Brandel Chamblee, Golf Channel analyst, noted that Tiger's "got back issues, swing issues and chipping issues - the whole trifecta of problems that can destroy your golf game."

For nearly 20 years, starting in the mid-1960s, Doug's SCOOPS and Doug Sneyd news cartoons -distributed by the Toronto Star Syndicate - appeared daily in newspapers across North America.
