Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies.
From Arnold Palmer:
It's a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get.
From Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear:
A kid grows up a lot faster on the golf course. Golf teaches you how to behave.
From Mark Twain:
It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling.
