“I just try to enjoy what I can do. I know that sounds silly to most people, but it’s hard, it’s hard work, golf is hard. It’s the greatest game, but it’s also the most miserable. Life outside golf is great. I’m just trying to let that bleed in.” The golf course. I thought I did really well the last couple of days and there’s no guarantee I’ll continue to do great, but I just made the decision again.”

Sometimes they say some very stupid things, but even when they say stupid things, look, smile, wave, it’s just a way of enjoying it.”
