Best Quotes From The 2017 Travelers Championship
“It was good. It was exciting. Lot of rooting, and this is always a great tournament to come to because the fans love it, and we love the fans when they get to come out ask do that. They’re pretty polite too. There were a few drunks out there, but you’re going to have that wherever you go. Overall it was great.” Boo Weekley
“Yeah, it was good. The fan base here is awesome. You’ve got a few drunk ones out there, and a few people that just love you and people that just want to holler just to holler. So it was fun to be able to come out here and being in the last group playing and be a part of it. It was great.” Boo Weekley
“I think it’s awesome. I’m hesitant and will speak out adamantly about not comparing myself to anybody else. I think that’s unfair. I don’t think anybody will do what Tiger did for the game. But it’s really cool to be out here at my age, to experience what we’re able to experience, play golf for a living. That’s a dream come true for me.” Jordan Spieth
“I felt comfortable on the bunker. I felt more comfortable in the bunker than I did from four feet. I was in there in regulation, knew it was the place to be. So my approach shot I thought that if it were not going to carry, that bunker’s not bad. If it happens to carry on to the green, great. From 225 into this hole I was happy with where it was. I was just trying to get it up there somewhere around the hole.
For it to actually kind of spin in, I went and jumped up and saw it kind of spinning towards the middle of the hole and I’m like, no way. I’m looking at it like there’s no way. It hit and went in, and I lost my mind.” Jordan Spieth
“Oh, it gives me good momentum. I feel like I’ve been playing some solid golf. Really for us Zurich, it’s just the biggest thing is there’s that one round that kind of kills me. I mean, yesterday, only missing three fairways and three greens and having 34 putts, it’s absurd. It’s something you can’t do.
Even today I had three three-putts, and still those are just things that cost you winning golf tournaments. Yeah, you can get away with a couple of those to end up having a decent finish. But to win golf tournaments, you can’t do things like that.” Patrick Reed
“Yeah, I mean, I played great today. I played the playoff hole great. He hit an unbelievable bunker shot, and Jordan does Jordan things. So there’s not really much you can say. I’m obviously disappointed, but happy to be in the position I was in today.” Daniel Berger
“I mean, it’s just Jordan doing Jordan things, you know? I played great today, so I’m not going to be too upset. Obviously I wanted to win, just kind of speechless right now.” Daniel Berger
“Yeah, I mean, from what I’ve seen the last couple days it’s good. I mean, tee to green-wise, I’m right where I need to be. Driving the ball as well as I ever have, and hitting my irons pretty good. Yeah, just sharpen up the short game. When I miss greens, getting it up-and-down, and take advantage of the opportunities I’m giving myself. If I do that, I know I can shoot scores like I did today.” Rory McIlroy
“It’s a cool golf course. You’ve seen it. It’s not just this golf course, it’s the whole tournament, Travelers, it’s something very, very special. The players absolutely love it. Look what happened this week with the strength of field that we’ve had with Rory setting up. We’re independent contractors so we can play anything we want. It just shows that everything that Jay did with Travelers is going to pay off for now and hopefully for years and years to come.” Paul Casey
“I love this place. It’s going to be one of those stops that’s going to be hard for me not to put on the schedule moving forward. The golf course fits my eye. Honestly, the crowd out there were amazing. Just really looking forward to the weekend, and hopefully coming back here for many years to come.” Wesley Bryan
From Tiger Woods:
”I’m currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder. I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour.”
