Favorite Golf Quotes

Recommended Posts

I read a quote from Payne Stewart yesterday "A bad attitude is worse than a bad swing." 
I liked it. What's your favorite golf quote? 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Bobby Jones: Competitive golf is played mainly on a five-and-a-half-inch course, the space between your ears.”

This is funny, because both of the two quotes listed so far aren't really true.

Someone with a bad attitude and a great golf swing is going to produce better scores than someone with a great attitude but a horrible golf swing.

People make it on the PGA tour because of their physical skills, not because of their mental skills.

Here's 16 pages about the mental game and it's relative lack of importance

That's funny. I took the quote to mean something completely different. I wasn't thinking of it as how to shoot the lowest score. I was thinking of it as who would Payne rather spend time with? Or would who Payne rather have in his foursome? In my imagination Payne doesn't want to spend time with either, but somebody with a bad attitude would be WORSE than somebody with a bad golf swing. Like maybe Payne can help the person with the bad swing, but there's nothing he can do for the person with the bad attitude.

I've always like Lee Trevino's quote

“You don’t know what pressure is until you play for five bucks with only two bucks in your pocket"

There should also be a quote about the walk of shame one makes on their way to an ATM after a round.

I have probably posted this before, but it's still funny. 

Golfer to Caddy: "can I get there with my 7 iron"?

Caddy to Golfer: "Sure you can....eventually".

There are tons of extremely talented golfers that don’t make it due to folding under pressure and that is 100% mental.

I don't think there are as many as you think, but this isn't the topic for it.

Let's stick to some golf quotes, not debating topics with several topics already dedicated to their discussion.

I read it from Lewis Grizzard, but he probably modified it from somewhere else:

Playing St Andrews badly, and missing a shot with a club the caddie suggested, the player said,

"You must be the worst caddie in the world!"

To which the caddie responded,

"That sir, would be to great a coincidence!"

I saw one from Tiger Woods that kink of made me giggle. 

"Achievements on the golf course are not what matters, decency and honesty are what matter."

Kind of ironic in light of what happened with Tiger.

I have absolutely no idea where I heard this, but it definitely is not mine.

"There are two parts to golf. One part is fun. The other is putting."

Can anyone places this for me?

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
