Golf’s most famous athletes, comedians and raconteurs talk hitting the links and life on the links

The story behind Charlie Chaplin’s annual visit to Maine remains a mystery. He’s a big fan of Golf, the club members tell me, so it’s no wonder they asked him to play nine holes every year. He has a few days when he can do this. So in May he heads north every year. In September he’s back in New York! Maybe it’s because he’s never far from his script!

Baseball great Yogi Berra was notorious for hitting the links every day, even if it was an extra-inning game. There were also other famous golfers like Bogey and Seve Ballesteros. Yeardley Smith, of Nick and Steve fame, seems to have a golfing kinship with Jimmy Stewart. He must’ve been a big fan of this show.
