'Shall We Make It a Shilling a Hole?'

JAMES BOND (SEAN CONNERY) AND AURIC GOLDFINGER (Gert Fröbe) certainly had a memorable golf match at Stoke Park Club in the Bond classic Goldfinger.

"Shall we make it a shilling a hole?" queried Bond.


Collecting on a golf bet can certainly be awkward.

I must say, though, that "Oddjob" is an apt name for a caddie-chauffeur-bodyguard.

Always liked the golf match in "Goldfinger." I seem to think that Bond played a Slazenger. I had to lookup the grand of golf ball Goldfinger played. Anyone? Anyone? Buehler.
