"I am an intermittent golfer, getting very violent attacks at regular intervals," says Dr. Conan Doyle "It usually takes me about two months to convince myself that I shall ever be any good, and then I give it up until a fresh burst of energy gets me trying once more. I played in Egypt until they told me that excavators had to pay a special tax. I inaugurated a private course in Vermont also, and the Yankee farmers asked us what we were boring for."
