“If they were going to disqualify me I wish they had told me yesterday so I could of went home.”- Ben Crane after two-four stroke penalties and then being DQ’d at Albertsons Boise Open.
“I’m comfortable at East Lake. I’m in a great position. Just going there and getting work in the next few days.-Jordan Spieth on the Tour Championship
“For me if I go out next week — not only win the FedExCup, I think I have to win the tournament next week to be Player Of The Year or at least have a chance to be Player Of The Year and that’s really — that’s our MVP, that’s the most important award.-Jordan Spieth
“It’s disappointing but I like the fact that I’m starting to play well. I look forward to staying sharp this week for the Presidents Cup. I’ll play the following week in Napa. Looks like I’m probably going to go to China, too. I feel like I’m playing well.”- Phil Mickelson on not advancing to the Tour Championship

“You know what, it’s a good solid week. I’m looking forward to — actually halfway through my season I didn’t even think I was going to get here, especially the Tour Championship. Very happy about that.”-Jason Day
“It’s been a fun year. I’m looking forward to next week. I think it will all come together at the right time.”- Rickie Fowler
“Yeah, feel awesome about this. It’s a long week when you lead everyday. Takes energy out of you. I was pretty tired last night and didn’t sleep very well.
That five shot lead sort of — it’s just enough that you shouldn’t get beat but not quite enough that you are out of reach.
Really happy, nice, especially with Rosie making a run at me late there on the back-9 to hold him off. Ended up winning by five shots but really a lot closer than that.”- Marc Leishman
“Some decisions aren’t completely up to the individual. There was outside expectation from elsewhere. I played these events for two reasons: thinking that I still had a chance, but for trying to fulfill obligations elsewhere.” – on playing the last three PGA Tour events despite hinting earlier that he was ready to hang up his clubs for the season.”- Rory McIlroy
