But in the end it's still a game of golf, and if at the end of the day you can't shake hands with your opponents and still be friends, then you've missed the point.
A bad attitude is worse than a bad swing.
People who have never had an addiction don't understand how hard it can be.
I'm going to a special place when I die, but I want to make sure my life is special while I'm here.
That's why I'm very proud of being American. I'm proud to pay taxes. I pay a lot of taxes, but it sure beats the alternative.
I think that we all have something in common in that we have dreams. The thing about dreams is sometimes you get to live them out.
Yes, I'm a patriotic person. For these people who disgrace the American way and burn our flag and do all of these things... I say, don't live here and disgrace my country. Go live in the Middle East and see how you like it.
I'm 42 now, what I would consider prime time.
I don't think it's healthy to take yourself too seriously.
Tiger is the greatest thing that's happened to the tour in a long time. He has brought incredible attention to golf at a time of year when football and the World Series always take precedence. Everything I've heard about him seems to be true.
If you can't laugh at yourself, then how can you laugh at anybody else? I think people see the human side of you when you do that.
For example, I wouldn't hesitate to sit somebody down if he wasn't performing, even if he was the No. 1 player in the world. I've been sat down before.

This thing is for the game of golf, yeah, but trust me, the Europeans don't have that mentality.
The two-piece ball I switched to spun too much. One shot would go the distance I thought it should, then the next one would fall short, and then the next one would go long.
We live in such a sheltered environment in the United States. I've been fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world, and I've seen things you only read about and see on the news.
With the media, I could be quick and ugly and critical. I tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve.
Invariably something happens at a U.S. Open where the golf course gets out of control one day, they have one pin that's out of control. It always seems to happen. But they've gotten better about the height of the rough.
I went over before the British Open and played Valderrama thinking that I might make the team, might be a captain's pick. I made the effort to go over there.
