"I don't know if you're ever finished trying to improve. As soon as you feel like you are finished, then I guess you are finished, because you’ve already put a limit on your ability and what you can attain. I don’t think that’s right."—Tiger Woods "I've never had a coach in my life. When I find one who can beat me, then I’ll listen."—Lee Trevino The New Quotable Golfer is a rich compendium of golf quotes that reflect the history, tradition, agony, and ecstasy of the game. These words of wisdom come from some of the game’s most famous practitioners and fans, such as Tommy Armour, Chip Beck, Raymond Floyd, Ben Hogan, Julie Inkster, Dan Jenkins, Nancy Lopez, Arnold Palmer, Chi-Chi Rodriguez, Dr. Bob Rotelle, Tom Watson, Tiger Woods, and many more. This compilation of the most inclusive and timeless sayings about the sport makes a great gift for all golf enthusiasts—from duffer to professional and everyone in between.
