It will always be the ball and me.
I remember there was a time when people were saying I could never win again.
I really don't feel like playing anymore.
I always come from truth.
I look at a streak as I don't lose - literally.
I lost my ability to will things to happen.
I do plan to return to golf one day, I just don't know when that day will be.
Hopefully I'll continue to have the success I've had.
I feel like my life is pretty special.
I saw a person that I never thought I would ever become.
Businesswise, everything's been good.
I really miss a lot of my friends out there.
I like to pick my causes and not be forced into doing something.
I am definitely not a politician.
I don't think golf has ever been any pressure as far as having to succeed.
People thought it was asinine for me to change my swing after I won the Masters by 12 shots. ... Why would you want to change that? Well, I thought I could become better. If I play my best, I'm pretty tough to beat. I'd like to play my best more frequently, and that's the whole idea. That's why you make changes. I thought I could become more consistent.
It's hard to believe, but anything can happen. Accidents do happen, unfortunately, it happened at the worst time.
Achievements on the golf course are not what matters, decency and honesty are what matter.
If money titles meant anything, I'd play more tournaments. The only thing that means a lot to me is winning. If I have more wins than anybody else and win more majors than anybody else in the same year, then it's been a good year.
I don't want to become as good as I once was. I want to become better.
There's always stuff to work on. You're never there.
The amount of meetings I've been in - people would be shocked. But that's how you gain experience, how you can gain knowledge, being in meetings and participating. You learn and grow.
I believe in myself. There's nothing wrong with believing in myself. That's the whole idea, is that you can always become better.
My mind is my biggest asset. I expect to win every tournament I play.
Sad to say I'm missing the Masters. Thanks to the fans for so many kind wishes.
In order to help people, you have to first learn how to help yourself.
Don't force your kids into sports. I never was. To this day, my dad has never asked me to go play golf. I ask him. It's the child's desire to play that matters, not the parent's desire to have the child play. Fun. Keep it fun.
You can win all the tournaments you want, but the majors are what you're remembered for. It's how you're measured as a champion in our sport. The majors are where it's at.
I think the guys who are really controlling their emotions ... are going to win.
Nobody could have prepared me for the life I've had to become accustomed to.
Hockey is a sport for white men. Basketball is a sport for black men. Golf is a sport for white men dressed like black pimps.
People don't understand that when I grew up, I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic, and that's been what has gotten me this far.
If you are given a chance to be a role model, I think you should always take it because you can influence a person's life in a positive light, and that's what I want to do. That's what it's all about.
It's ok to fail. Failing does not shape your personality; it's how you react upon your failure. Do you dust yourself off and mope or do you dust yourself off and come back stronger the next time? Eventually you will win. It may not happen the next time, it may take a little time but you will win in the end.
No matter how good you get you can always get better, and that's the exciting part.
It was a mixed bag pretty much all week. A lot of really, really good stuff out there, some mediocre and some bad.
The virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one's own family.
Money and fame made me believe I was entitled. I was wrong and foolish.
Golf is evolving, every day, every shot.
