- That’s the nature of the beast. That’s why we’re out here. You win. You lose. It was my time for some reason.
- The practice ground is an evil place. It’s full of so called coaches waiting to pounce. You can see them waiting to dish their mumbo jumbo. To hell with coaches.
- I’ve never been a very technical player. I don’t get caught up in swing positions and mechanics. When I work on my swing… I’m looking for feels. You’ll get better results-and often more distance-if you swing at eighty percent effort. I get all kinds of people telling me I have the best swing in the world-it’s beautiful, it’s effortless. But I know when that isn’t true.
