IN BOOKSTORES NOW: 'GOLF IS A FUNNY GAME ... BUT IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE'
 ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- If it's a funny, classic, perceptive, outlandish or insightful comment about golf, chances are it's in the newly released book, "Golf is a Funny Game ... But it Wasn't Meant to Be."
 For more than 40 years, author Ken Janke has researched and collected the most memorable quotes about the game. The best of these -- quotes from caddies and celebrities, amateurs and champions, politicians and actors -- have been carefully arranged and presented in "Golf is a Funny Game ... But it Wasn't Meant to Be."
 "Janke has quotes as fresh as yesterday and as old as five centuries," said Bill Haney, president of Momentum Books, the publisher. "These quotes express all that the game has meant to countless players and golf enthusiasts. The classic one-liners, the studied observations, the long-forgotten nuggets, the obscure and the never-before-in-print -- Janke has created a gem."
 Complementing the text are original illustrations by the gifted artist Doug Parrish. His deft pen and brush capture the essence and the character of the greats of the game from the legendary Brits and Scots to the modern giants. Golfing great Mickey Wright has written a foreword for the book.
 "One can only marvel at the research and superior editing that makes 'Golf is a Funny Game' such an outstanding book," commented actor Jack Lemmon, known for his love of the game.
 "Golf is a Funny Game ... But it Wasn't Meant to Be" is available from bookstores, and may also be ordered directly from Momentum Books at 210 Collingwood, Suite 106, Ann Arbor, MI 48103, telephone 313-995-3339.
