Lee Trevino
Six time major championship winner Lee Trevino was an irrepressible chatterer on the golf course. Was it gamesmanship or just his way of dealing with nerves? When Tony Jacklin asked him to cut out the talk before the final round of the 1972 Open Championship, Trevino replied "You don't have to talk Tony, just listen." Trevino won, Jacklin was third.

There are two things you can do with your head down - play golf and pray.

Columbus went around the world in 1492. That isn't a lot of strokes when you consider the course.

I thought Manual Labor was a Mexican golf pro.

You 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.

Show me a golfer who doesn't have a mean streak, and I'll show you a weak competitor.

I wish I was playing in the [1985] Ryder Cup team. How could they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.

I'm a golfaholic, no question about that. Counseling wouldn't help me. They'd have to put me in prison, and then I'd talk the warden into building a hole or two and teach him how to play.

If it wasn't for golf, I don't know what I'd be doing. If my IQ had been two points lower, I'd have been a plant somewhere.

My swing is so bad I look like a caveman killing his lunch.

I still swing the way I used to, but when I look up the ball is going in a different direction.

There is no such thing as a natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls.

If God wanted you to putt cross-handed, he would have made your left arm longer.

To me, the [British] Open is the tournament I would come to if I had to leave a month before and swim over.

You don't know what pressure is until you play for five bucks with only two bucks in your pocket.
