“I used to map out every step of my life,

and that’s where a lot of my trouble came.

I used to say, ‘By 18, I want to do this,

and by 20 I want to do that.’

That’s not how it works.

Life never happens the way you plan.”

—Michelle Wie, defending U.S. Women’s Open champion and youngest player to make the cut in an LPGA tournament (2003 Kraft Nabisco Championship) at the age of 13 years, 5 months, 17 days, in GOLF magazine, June 2015.


“Woods is now a one-man soap opera…

‘He might still be Mario Andretti,’ said one swing coach,

‘but he’s not driving a Ferrari anymore.”

Writer Jim McCabe in GolfWeek, Feb. 2015.




“He keeps me young.”

Butch Harmon, 70, referring to his student Rickie Fowler, 26,

winner of this year’s Players Championship and first place money $1.8 million.


“The lighter your grip at the top of the backswing,

the greater the muscles in the arms stretch

and the farther and faster they can contract; thus,

you do have more zip [and power] in your swing at impact.”

John Zumerchik in NEWTON ON THE TEE: A Good Walk Through the Science of Golf.


“DJ’s glassy-eyed avoidance look — that’s gone,”

said one acquaintance. “He’s way more present.

It’s like he’s a different person.”
