Quotes

I never had a mental approach to the game. I just went out and played. I got my confidence from hard work.

You can talk to a fade but a hook won't listen.

There is no such thing as a natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls.

Al Geiberger should have to take a test to prove he's a member of the human race.

You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work.

My wife doesn't care what I do when I'm away, as long as I don't have a good time.

My point is, there's no sense trying to squeeze something out of your swing if you can let your clubs do the shotmaking for you.

Jack Nicklaus liked to curve the ball by opening or closing the clubface at address. I never felt I was good enough to do it his way. I didn't like changing my swing path, either, which some guys do.There's only one really reliable way to curve the ball: Change your hand position at address.

Seve Ballesteros was the best trouble-shot player who ever lived. It didn't matter how far in the woods you put that guy, he'd find a way to get out. But Seve inadvertently put a lot of big numbers on the scorecards of average players, because he inspired them to take dumb chances.

Every shot feels like the first shot of the day. If I'm on the range hitting shot after shot, I can hit them just as good as I did when I was 30. But out on the course, your body changes between shots. You get out of the cart, and you've got this 170-yard 5-iron over a bunker, and it goes about 138.
