A great deal of unnecessarily bad golf is played in this world.
Don't play too much golf. Two rounds a day are plenty.
I'm the best and I'll thank you to remember that.
More matches are lost through carelessness at the beginning than any other cause.
Harry Vardon
To play well you must feel tranquil and at peace. I have never been troubled by nerves in golf because I felt I had nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Harry Vardon
