The month of November marks the birthdays of some of our favorite golfers. So, to commemorate the joyous occasions, here’s a quick collection of some of our favorite quotes from the birthday boys – Gary Player, Bubba Watson, Fuzzy Zoeller, Jason Day and David Duval.
One of our favorite Gary Player quotes has to be, “If there’s a golf course in Heaven, I hope it’s like Augusta National. I just don’t want an early tee time.” A close second: “Guys, when you get to 70, you’re allowed a mulligan.” We agree, Gary! Photo by PGA TOUR
From the 2012 Master’s Champion, “Everybody can see that my swing is homegrown. That means everybody has a chance to do it.” If only we could drive it like Bubba! Photo by the Star-Telegram
Known as one of golf’s more colorful personalities, Zoeller always has had a way with words. “Vodka does not ease back pain, but it does get your mind off it.” And, “The greatest thing about golf, there’s no end to it unless your dead. You just go from here to the senior tour.” Photo by PGA TOUR
According to Jason Day, one of our favorite Aussies, “The moment I start worrying about other players is the moment I start losing focus on what I need to do, and when I do that, I’ll start making bogeys.” So true! Photo by Golf.com
David Duval would just as soon prep while cutting through some powder on the slopes before going the range-rat route. “I was never a player who had to hit 500 balls a day, like Vijay Singh… I think I won at least twice, maybe three times, after I’d been on the West Coast snowboarding for seven or days and not touching a club.” And words to live by, “If you can’t make light of yourself or make fun of yourself or laugh at yourself, life is going to be pretty miserable.” Photo by PGA TOUR
