"I've always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn't have a chance to win."
"Golf is a game in which you claim the privileges of age, and retain the playthings of childhood."
"No matter what happens never give up a hole. In tossing in your cards after a bad beginning you also undermine your whole game, because to quit between tee and green is more habit forming than drinking a highball before breakfast."
"Golf does strange things to other people, too. It makes liars out of honest men, cheats out of altruists, cowards out of brave men and fools out of everybody."
"It's still good sportsmanship to not pick up lost balls while they are still rolling."
"Eighteen holes of match play will teach you more about your foe than nineteen years of dealing with him across the desk."
"The fundamental problem with golf is that every so often, no matter how lacking you may be in the essential virtues required of a steady player, the odds are that one day you will hit the ball straight, hard, and out of sight. This is the essential frustration of this excruciating sport. For when you've done it once, you make the fundamental error of asking yourself why you can't do this all the time. The answer to this question is simple: the first time was a fluke."
"Golf is like a love affair: If you don't take it seriously, it's not fun; if you do take it seriously, it breaks your heart."
"Talking to a golf ball won't do you any good. Unless you do it while your opponent is teeing off."
"The older you get the stronger the wind gets and it's always in your face."
"If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball."
