There is no king of golf. Never has been, never will be. Golf is the most democratic game on Earth... It punishes and exalts us all with splendid equal opportunity.
I have a tip that can take 5 strokes off anyone's golf game. It's called an eraser.

I can remember back to my early tour days when some fellows didn't think I'd last too long. Nothing physical - they said it was my swing. Some said it was too much of a 'muscle swing' to stand the test of time. One fellow predicted I wouldn't get past 30 out there.
Look at the better players of my era - Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Raymond Floyd. They had pros they worked with from time to time, but out on Tour, thousands of miles from home, each of them learned to be his own best coach. I think Tiger can do the same.
Everyone I built a course for thinks they have the best golf course in the world and I'm very pleased and proud of that.
You don't go to Palm Springs in the summer unless you're building a golf course.
I think I've heard somebody say that I was a well-dressed golfer. I guess that has something to do with the fact that a lot of people who play golf don't dress very well.
My problem happens to be near-sightedness - inability to see distance. And this is pretty tough on a golfer.
Why hit a conservative shot? When you miss it, you are in just as much trouble as when you miss a bold one.
The more I practice the luckier I get.
I am a sentimental guy, and occasionally, that lump in my throat when I speak has stopped my tongue from working.
Golf challenges you mentally at any age, and when you become my age, it's a challenge physically to try to make your game work as well as it ever did. That's close to impossible, but that doesn't keep you from trying to hit the ball where you used to hit it and make the putts you used to make all the time.
What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive.
I never quit trying. I never felt that I didn't have a chance to win.
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.
Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.
I never rooted against an opponent, but I never rooted for him either.
Feel is the most perplexing part of golf, and probably the most important.
Every day I play golf, that's my goal. To break 70 the other way. To shoot 70 or better.
