Players simply waltzed into the wilderness and took whatever sandtraps and water hazards nature could throw at them, thwacking those balls with good grace across the skyline. Today golf is a grand and peaceful sport with a dash of high society about it. But what happened in between?

His outrageous graphics poke fun at players, equipment and golf terms with equal gusto. Tiritilli has freelanced and lampooned for more years than he cares to admit...
