“I’m not very good in the rain. I don’t wear a golf glove.”
“I can say I won a Senior British Open at Turnberry. I think that’s the best thing about it, the whole week, was playing this course. It’s a challenging, very tough course, under extreme weather. But you know, it’s nice to win any event.”
“I think people like players they can relate to. It seems as if people think they know me. I just think I’m an ordinary Joe who plays golf very, very well.”
“Golf is a game to me. Other players work extremely hard all year long. I work hard before Augusta. I know I get good results when I practice, but it also wears me out. It literally wore me out even when I was in my 20s.”
“I caddied for a guy who was a very good player, and he gave me a set of clubs, just a starter set: 5-iron, 7-iron, 9-iron, putter and driver. I just loved it. How I developed my swing was to just grab a club and start banging balls.”
“I could go away five or six weeks in a row and never touch a club. I would just look at them and say, ‘I just don’t want to; it’s not that important.’ And it wasn’t that important. Golf – I don’t want to answer loosely – I pay a lot of attention to it, but I don’t ever really think about it.”
“My goal has always been to play golf, and play it well. In the end, that’s what I am, a golfer. If my back lets me, I’m going to play my favorite places. If I hurt myself, that’ll probably be it for a while.”
“I’m a lot older than I was when I was 30, which is kind of hard to believe.”
“I’m pretty much a self-taught player. My swing hasn’t changed a whole lot, I don’t think. But I watch a lot of people.”
“Golf is supposed to be fun, but I don’t think anything is fun if you’re not doing it reasonably well.”
“Really in all my years on Tour, in the U.S. Open I probably played great golf in two of them, out of maybe 20, so it’s a lot of work.”
“I left home at 17, traveled. I got married when I was 21. That’s a young age. As it turned out, things were fine, then not so fine, and then it was a blunder. That happens all the time.”
“I used to break a lot of clubs. I probably was a little different than your average junior player. I did have a lot longer hair and a lot more brown hair. But my demeanor, you know, really from maybe my second, third year on Tour, has gotten a lot more even keel.”
“I will say I love competing, and I was in a great era of playing with young Phil Mickelson and older Greg Norman and Nick Price. I don’t know if YA Title could throw the ball these days, but you can play golf for a long, long time.”
“My mom was so people-friendly. She was incredible. She’d go to the mall, and she’d talk to everyone. Give people a kiss on the cheek. I think if I wasn’t pushed around a lot, I’d be great with people. Maybe I still can be.”
