Quotes Of The Week On Tour
“You know, I want to get out and compete. There’s a reason I’ve been having surgery and coming back and having rehab and trying to play. I think I can play out here.”
I want to win. I want to move up in FedEx points, I want to get in The Open Championship.”
Davis Love III at the Greenbrier Classic
“It appears that the governing bodies in an attempt to soften the blow of taking the long putters away from the world of bad-back and flinch-afflicted golfers, at the very least provided a loophole and at the very worst abdicated the throne of governance. I cannot believe what I am seeing on PGA Tour Champions, with regard to the putting strokes of Bernhard Langer and Scott McCarron.”
Brandel Chamblee on anchored putting
“I’m certain that I am not anchoring the putter and that my putting stroke is not violating the Rules of Golf. On several occasions, I have been in contact with the USGA and rules officials on the PGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions, and each time I have been assured that my putting stroke is within the Rules of Golf.”
Bernhard Langers statement on “anchoring”
“We are confident that Rule 14-B had been applied fairly, and have consistently seen no incident of a player breaking the Rule, which does not prohibit a hand or club to touch a player’s clothing in making a stroke. Integrity is at the heart of the Rules and how the game is played worldwide, and this essential value has made the game enjoyable for all golfers.”
The USGA statement on anchored putting accusations
“I don’t think it (NBC-Golf Channel career) rules anything out. I’m going be working 20-odd weeks a year. I think being a caddie is always going to be in blood, but right now it’s one thing at a time.”
Jim “Bones” McKay on whether he would ever caddie again.
“Yeah, it’s slowly sinking in. I had a couple minutes to myself in the locker room, but it’s just been an incredible feeling and it’s honestly just a dream come true.”
Xander Schauffele on his first PGA Tour win at the Greenbrier Classic
You’re always just trying to practice and get better and trying to dial it in. You know, I’ve been testing a lot of equipment lately because Ping has got a new driver out, and trying to test that but then going back to the old stuff, it’s just one of those things where you’ve got to do it because the company has asked, but I’m not saying that’s the excuse, but it’s just — you’ve got to keep grinding and hopefully you find something and something clicks and you go from there.”
Bubba Watson on the state of his golf game
Well, all today I got updates on Jon Rahm’s success throughout the day and how great a win he had. Congratulations to Jon. Tim, as you know, in addition to being my caddie, is also his manager, and so he was very keen on knowing how he was doing throughout the day. So we were both really happy for his success. That was a nice plus. But he’s just a fun guy to be around. I just love being around him. We had a great first week, and I’m looking forward to spending more time with him.”
Phil Mickelson on his first week with his brother Tim as his caddie
Yeah, look, I’m really disappointed. The last two times The Irish Open has been in Northern Ireland, not playing at the weekend, it’s obviously not where I want to be. Its been really frustrating year. Just hasn’t really went the way I wanted it to. And yeah, it’s been tough but I felt like I was playing well coming in here. I played a lot of links golf last week. I was shooting good scores. I was confident. Just when I needed to play well and shoot the scores that I was shooting last week, it just wasn’t quite there.
Rory McIlroy on missing the cut at the Irish Open
Well, it’s really hard to explain right now. I know the trophy is right next to me and my name is going to be there for ever now, but it seems hard to believe that it’s happened. It’s kind of somewhat surreal. It’s hard to explain. I just look at it and I see Nick Faldo, I see Jose Maria Olazabal, I see Nick Faldo again, I see Colin Montgomerie, Ian Woosnam, Seve. That’s a great list of great — and greatest European Tour players ever, and to have my name next to it, and the last one, Rory McIlroy, it’s so special. Not just to win this event but to win it at the place I just won it, Portstewart, great golf course, with the fans supporting me better than I’ve ever seen anybody support me. It’s been unbelievable.”
