“Really, really proud of this one. This is a special victory for me. I think obviously just winning here at this venue I think is really what means so much. A tournament that I pick up the trophy and the first thing I saw was Ben Hogan’s name twice. It sort of says a lot.”
Justin Rose after winning the 2018 Fort Worth Invitational
“Yeah, Fulch has done a great job of just literally handing me water bottle after water bottle. It seems relentless, to be honest with you. I haven’t even seen the inside of a restroom yet, so you can’t even drink quick enough out there.” Justin Rose– on the hot weather in Texas
“It would be nice to wear shorts. Even with my little chicken legs, I still would like to wear shorts.” –Tiger Woods on wearing shorts in practice rounds
“Looking back at 2004, and at parts of that magnificent day with Retief Goosen and Phil Mickelson coming down to the end, there are parts that we learned from. I’m happy we got a mulligan this time. We probably made a bogey last time, maybe a double bogey.”
Mike Davis-USGA executive director on the USGA mistakes in its handling of Shinnecock Hills during the U.S. Open 14 years ago.
“Even though it was still a tremendous week and still was a really good year in 2016, that kind of haunted me and all the questioning and everything. I let it tear me down a little bit. I kind of lost a little bit of my own freedom, thoughts on who I am as a person and as a golfer.” Jordan Spieth– looking back on his back-nine collapse at the 2016 Masters
“I putted great first round and final round. Second round I putted awful. I went back to my putter I played with last week in round three and then I putted great today. That putter only lasted one round, a good round. But I’m very pleased. My putting has been kind of up and down this year, but I had a great putting day today.” –Kevin Na on his putter at Fort Worth Invitational
“Yeah, it was fun. I felt like every hole one of us had a birdie. It was pretty impressive. Justin played well. Hat’s off to him. Any time you can come into a lead with four shots and play the way he did today, that’s impressive.”-Brooks Koepka
“I rolled it really well, especially today. Today I felt like I hit every line. Just need to keep doing what I’m doing and be ready to defend the title at the Open.”- Brooks Koepka
“Well, it’s been a great week, that is for sure. Just had to fight the two guys who are top 10 in the world. They showed out today. 7-, 8-under today, that’s kind of hard to beat.I did everything I could out there.”-Emiliano Grillo
“I think good things are about to come. I feel a good run coming for the second half of the season. Today was — each day I’ve felt better and better with the wedges and the putter and the short game; today was no different. My only bogey being just kind of trying to do too much on a par-5; 3-wood into the hazard. So, you know, I’m getting into where I’m not making bogeys, and then soon — the not making bogeys is great, and soon I’ll get back to the five, six birdies around and shoot some low rounds. So I know it’s right around the corner.”- Jordan Spieth
