A golf swing is a collection of corrected mistakes.
The arc of your swing doesn’t have a thing to do with the size of your heart.
To Sally, who showed me the benefits of the sport of golf.
I know this golf tournament has my name on it but it’s not about me. It’s about the Louisiana Tech family. There is nothing greater than being a part of the Bulldog family.
I just dress up what the Good Lord provides.
When you look at facing retirement in your mid-30s, and all of a sudden the outlet for that passion and work ethic goes away, you can’t just sit back in a rocking chair and be retired at 35. I’m not a good enough golfer to play golf every day.
Nothing goes down slower than a golf handicap.
There would be nothing to get me to run for president. I don’t even understand how anyone would want that job at all. Although I would be able to play golf which I don’t seem to have time now.
I always worry when someone’s a good golfer. It’s like you shouldn’t have time to be good at anything. You should just be a politician and you shouldn’t have time to practice golf.
All of us have an ‘inner clock,’ a certain pace at which we function most comfortably and effectively.
After you have the basics down it’s all mental.
The only times you touch the ball with your hand are when you tee it up and when you pick it out of the cup. The hell with television towers and cables and burrowing animals and the thousand and one things that are referred to as ‘not part of the golf course’. If you hit the ball off the fairway, you play it from there.
Victory is everything. You can spend the money but you can never spend the memories.
The hardest thing in golf is trying to two-putt when you have to, because your brain isn’t wired that way. You’re accustomed to trying to make putts, and when you change that mind-set, your brain short-circuits, especially under pressure.
You can’t make good scores happen. You’ve got to let it happen.
I’m still no good at ball-and-stick games. If I go play golf with the guys, it’s intended to be a joke.
I’m not a golf player. I think golf and fishing are the same, but at the end of the day, you can’t fry up and golf ball and dip it in tartar sauce. So I’m a fisherman.
His driving is unbelievable. I don’t go that far on my holidays.
I wish my name was Tom Kite.
