I’m actually a very quiet person off the golf course. I talk 150 miles per hour when I’m at the course, but when in private I very seldom ever open my mouth.
My divorce came to me as a complete surprise. That’s what happens when you haven’t been home in eighteen years.
One of the nice things about the Senior Tour is that we can take a cart and cooler. If your game is not going well, you can always have a picnic.
Nobody but you and your caddie care what you do out there, and if your caddie is betting against you, he doesn’t care, either.
I met Jesse Owens once. He was a remarkable individual, and I have tremendous respect for what he did in the Olympics under the circumstances.
If I could do anything over, I’d have spent more time with my first set of children. I would have taken more quality time with them, for sure.
How can they beat me? I’ve been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
I still sweat. My guts are still grinding out there. Sometimes I have enough cotton in my mouth to knit a sweater.
I never played much golf as a kid. I caddied quite a bit but never got serious into golf until about age 15.
I’m not scared of very much. I’ve been hit by lightning and been in the Marine Corps for four years.
Yes, I think I have the best swing on the Tour. Why have scores comedown in the last ten years? Partly because they are imitating me.
There are two things that won’t last long in this world, and that’s dogs chasing cars and pros putting for pars.
If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron.
There is no such thing as natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls.
I have an orthopedic pillow that’s made out of a sponge material. I have a plate in my throat, and I have to be careful or I could end up with a bad neck in the morning. That pillow is a must everywhere I go.
I’ve traveled the world and been about everywhere you can imagine. There’s not anything I’m scared of except my wife.
Living in Dallas, I root for the Mavericks and the Stars and the Cowboys, but I’ve always pulled for the Chicago Cubs. I enjoy watching them play.
You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work.
The most interesting guy I’ve ever played with was King Hassan of Morocco. I went over there on a trip in the early 1970s, and the King and I played five holes. I’ve never been that nervous in my life.
