The Clicking of Cuthbert - By P. G. Wodehouse - Classic Short Stories. The Clicking of Cuthbert is a collection of ten short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, all with a golfing theme. It was first published in the United Kingdom on February 3, 1922, by Herbert Jenkins Ltd of London. It was later published in the United States by George H. Doran of New York on May 28, 1924, under the title Golf Without Tears. There are some slight differences between the two editions, chiefly as regards the names of places and golfers, which were adapted to suit the country of publication. The first story in the collection introduces the Oldest Member, a repeat Wodehouse character, who narrates all but the last story. Three stories in the collection-"The Clicking of Cuthbert," "Ordeal by Golf," and "The Long Hole"-were filmed in 1924 as part of a series of six films of Wodehouse golf stories. Peter Haddon played Cuthbert.
