Oops! Armchair Golf Misquotes Elvis

"Don't you step on my blue suede golf shoes."
(not said by) Elvis Presley


Historical note:
Based upon an idea from Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins recorded "Blue Suede Shoes" in 1955. It was the first song to top country, rhythm and blues and pop music charts. Elvis Presley recorded his version in 1956.


Unsubstantiated:
Elvis didn't pick up the game of golf until after his death in 1977 and is currently an 18 handicap.

Getting it wrong for the love of the game.
