"Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented."
- Arnold Palmer
"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
- Ben Hogan
"Arnold’s place in history will be as the man who took golf from being a game for the few to a sport for the masses. He was the catalyst who made that happen."
- Jack Nicklaus
"A good golfer has the determination to win and the patience to wait for the breaks."
- Gary Player
"If you worry about making bogeys, it makes the game that much more difficult. You put more pressure on yourself without even noticing it. It makes a difference to take it easy when things aren’t going right."
- Sergio Garcia
I currently hold a 6 handicap and really enjoy the game. One of my favorite parts of the game is the long ball. I actually spent an entire summer training for long-ball driving and got it all the way up to 363 one time! Nowhere near as long as the guys on the long drive tour, but it was a great lesson in setting my mind to something and following through. The training consisted of rigorous stretching and core workouts with a trainer followed by golf instruction to master the long drive swing. It’s a fun process and I recommend it to anyone!
