Bob Hope began one of the finest golf charity events in the world back in 1960. His passing will touch all in the golf community - and beyond.

The Bob Hope Chrysler Classic was begun in 1960. In the many years it has run - gaining great support from actors and actresses over the years - it has brought in over $37 million for the charities it supports.

Bob Hope was a big fan of golf, and often made the game the target of his zinging one liners. Here are just a few samples.

One of my favorites, given his incredible generosity over the years, is this one:

If you haven't any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.

We'll miss you, Bob.
