Will Rogers on “Putters & Pool Halls”

It’s wonderful exercise. You stand on your feet for hours watching somebody else putt. It’s just the old-fashioned pool hall moved outdoors but with no chairs around the wall. BEVERLY HILLS, Cal., July 20, 1930From this quote, do you get the feeling that Will Rogers wasn’t too keen on the game of golf? I think it was too slow of a game for Will.

As you look at the pictures in the Will Rogers blog posts, you will notice that Will is always active. In the picture on the left, he is busy giving a speech. You’ll find other pictures of Will playing polo, riding horses, flying in airplanes, spinning a lasso, making a movie or playing with his kids.

“Why stand on your feet for hours watching somebody else putt” when you could be having fun doing something else?


The image was taken directly from photographs at the Will Rogers Memorial Museum archive. I apologize for the quality of the image, but this is exactly what the 1920s photo looked like when I scanned it. In the hundreds of images contained in this iPhone application, I wanted to share as many different Will Rogers photos as possible from as wide a variety of times and situations – movies, cowboy, vaudeville, with famous people, and family scenes.

Will Rogers is a man worth remembering, and quoting. His wit, humor and insight into life will amaze and astonish you. His life will inspire you. Watch for new blog posts from my Will Rogers quotes collection.
