No matter how good you get you can always get better, and that's the exciting part.
if you gone come in second, you're just the first loser!
Achievements on the golf course are not what matters, decency and honesty are what matter.
I'm addicted. I'm addicted to golf.
I hurt my wife, my kids, my mother, my wife's family, my friends, my foundation and kids all around the world who admired me.
As a child, the family that I had and the love I had from my two parents allowed me to go ahead and be more aggressive, to search and to take risks knowing that, if I failed, I could always come home to a family of love and support.

There are still courses in the United States that I am not allowed to play because of the color of my skin.
If money titles meant anything, I'd play more tournaments. The only thing that means a lot to me is winning. If I have more wins than anybody else and win more majors than anybody else in the same year, then it's been a good year.

I've done some pretty bad things in my life.
In therapy I have learned the importance of keeping spiritual life and professional life balanced. I need to regain my balance.
As a kid, I might have been psycho, I guess, but I used to throw golf balls in the trees and try and somehow make par from them. I thought that was fun.
Winning is not always the barometer of getting better.
A lot of times I blend in a little bit easier because I'm not like a basketball player who's going to stand out because of his height.
