- Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.
- Golf would be my ticket somewhere, I told myself. I just couldn’t say where it would lead me.
- Great touch is often written off simply as ‘talent,’ which is crucial, because a good swing can take a golfer only so far. I’ve seen thousands of fantastic swings in my day, but that doesn’t guarantee anything.
- Had I not become a professional golfer, I think I would have pursued some type of career in aviation.
- I am a sentimental guy, and occasionally, that lump in my throat when I speak has stopped my tongue from working.
- I can remember back to my early tour days when some fellows didn’t think I’d last too long. Nothing physical – they said it was my swing. Some said it was too much of a ‘muscle swing’ to stand the test of time. One fellow predicted I wouldn’t get past 30 out there.
- I can’t be casual about losing. I always think I have a chance to win until winning is absolutely impossible.
