The 2018 Masters was one of the most exiting ever and we have some of the best quotes from the players for the week.
“It’s been a couple of years I’ve been coming here just to eat. And now to be able to play this golf course and to be able to tee it up and play in the Masters, this is one of the greatest walks in all of golf. And I had missed it for the last couple of years.”
“The first time I saw the leaderboard was after I tapped in on 18. Honest to God. Didn’t look once today. That was my plan going in. I’m nine back. Go out and just have fun. Don’t worry about the golf tournament, itself, worry about playing Augusta National. I heard roars. I knew somebody was playing well.”
“I think the biggest thing was just, of course, I felt like the game was in a little better shape coming in, but just the experiences from in the past. I knew the golf course a little better. I had a little more experience around the course this year coming in.”
“I knew someone else was going to go post a number early. Did I think they were going to post that type of number? No” (Spieth’s 64)
“It’s hard to take any positives from it right now, but at least I put myself in the position. That’s all I wanted to do. The last four years I’ve had top‑10s, but I haven’t been close enough to the lead. Today I got myself there. I didn’t quite do enough. But, you know, come back again next year and try.”
“I think when you’re playing in the final group of a major there’s always going to be pressure. But after I parred the first, that sort of settled me down. So it wasn’t as if nerves got to me. I just didn’t quite have it.”
“This week I’ve hit some really big misses, which I haven’t been doing this year, I haven’t had big numbers this year, and then these last two weeks I’ve had a lot of big numbers. So I’ll have to get that worked out.”
