The PGA Tour was in Las Vegas this week, and Tiger Woods made a big announcement. Read the best quotes we found this week from the PGA Tour and golf.
“I never thought about giving up. I didn’t know if my back would let me play again. It feels good to get a win. I feel like if you get one, the wins can start coming. My personal issues are on a totally different level than golf. ” Patrick Cantlay
“I’ve had so many lows. To win today is so different from where I have been.”-Patrick Cantlay winner of Shriners Open.
“Remember when Tiger used to get headlines for winning a tournament? Now he gets them for entering.”- Dan Jenkins
“I don’t think it’s too early. The doctor told him he could play. I’m very optimistic. My expectations are incredibly high.” – Hank Haney on Tiger Woods return to competition
“I want to play another Ryder Cup. That’s why I need to do this. It was really important to me. I have missed it too much.” – Paul Casey on why he rejoined the European Tour
“I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge,” -Tiger Woods
“I can’t believe how far I’m hitting the golf ball. I’m back to hitting it my full numbers [yardages] and not really trying to do that. We need to do something about the golf ball. I just think the ball is going too far. If the game keeps progressing the way it is with technology, I think the 8,000-yard golf course is not too far away. And that’s pretty scary because we don’t have enough property to start designing these type of golf courses and it just makes it so much more complicated.” – Tiger Woods
“I feel really good in the fact that my back is not aching, my legs are starting to come back and my overall golf fitness is starting to come around. I’ve never had my back fused. It’s a different feeling. I’m a little bit tighter. I don’t have the pain. I don’t know if I’m going to loosen up or if this is the way I’m always going to be.” – Tiger Woods
“I think it’s my first back-to-back on The European Tour ever, so I like achieving new firsts, for sure. Knew I had a good chance. Obviously yesterday was a key round to go low and get myself in contention.”- Justin Rose
“Winning now is important. Winning now gets you on the team. But winning now doesn’t win points in The Ryder Cup. Playing well in September does. There’s a lot of pacing yourself that needs to be done.”-Justin Rose
“I want to be the best player in the world. I want to win a bunch of tournaments. I feel if that’s not what you are our here for, you shouldn’t be out here.” –Patrick Cantlay
“He said, ‘No, I’m committed to you. I’m committed to your return and you playing golf again.’ And I said, ‘Well, I understand that, but I don’t know when that is, or if that’s even going to happen, so let me help you get you another bag.’ But he keeps saying no.” – Tiger Woods on caddie Joe LaCava turning down offers to caddie for other players.

This is another good sign, I never understood why he got rid of his best shot in the first place. https://t.co/1C0TxEcm1B
