I'm about five inches from being an outstanding golfer. That's the distance my left ear is from my right.
A good golf course makes you want to play so badly that you hardly have the time to change your shoes.
I'm going to leave y'all with one thought. I'm a big believer in fate. I have a good feeling about this.
You learn to accept defeat graciously in golf. Unlike other sports, the game itself is a constant opponent. It never stops. A golfer is fortunate to win a few times. We spend our whole lives trying to conquer something, and we lose a lot more than we win.
If we are to preserve the integrity of golf as left to us by our forefathers, it is up to all of us to carry on the true spirit of the game.
The reason the Road Hole at St. Andrews is the most difficult par 4 in the world is that it was designed as a par 6.
I feel like I've won the tournament.
I don't have any big secret about putting. Just hit at it. It's either going to miss or go in.
Golf is the hardest game in the world. There is no way you can ever get it. Just when you think you do, the game jumps up and puts you in your place.
I have felt terribly from the beginning when I saw the problems and recognized that they would be ongoing. We were hired to put back the contours of the greens as closely as possible to George Thomas's designs and were real proud of what we did. It's a sad situation now
Hale Irwin is the exception. He just does everything so well.
This is happening all over the world. It's not just this golf course. Hopefully, if it stays dry, it will let a few more people in (contention). If it gets wet, though, there's only a few people where it's attainable.

The game embarrasses you until you feel inadequate.
I know most players do, but I always keep both eyes opened. I still do it. I see two shafts, the real one and the transparent one. I look for what's on the inside edge of the transparent one
Hitting a shorter club to these greens means a great, great deal. Younger players are so much more capable length-wise.
The areas off the greens are masterpieces. I don't think there's anything like it in North America.
I enjoy Augusta. I enjoy its challenges. There's no other golf course like this anywhere. Its greens and its challenges on and around the greens are just super, super tough. So the greens are fun to play in sort of a morbid way
I had a few miracles happen out there today.
As a golfer, you feel like you're perpetually on the rack [in foursomes]. Mentally, it's very difficult.
My golf game's gone off so much that when I went fishing a couple of weeks ago my first cast missed the lake.
It's emotional for every champion who decides to step down, it's a tough decision. It's probably easier for some, like me. But I'm just going to try to take it in stride. It's part of life.

I had a 15th club in my bag.
