“This tour, we’re like sheeps,” said Belen Mozo while playing in the land where there are lots more sheep than people. Angry that the officials not halted play during a dangerous storm at the New Zealand Women's Open.

Colin Montgomerie

“I never won a major. Tiger won 14. But would I trade my career for Tiger’s? No.”
Yeah right Monty I’ll think about that one.

John Daly
“If I throw a putter, it’s going to be in two pieces, not one. And it’s going to be 50 yards in the lake, not 5.”
The story goes he says he intended to toss his putter to his caddie and I’ll believe Big John because he’s got such an impeccable behaviour record.

Lydia Ko
''It was my first tournament back. I think there are a lot of positive things to look at rather than thinking 'hey, I shot over par.'''
Said after shooting 2 over par in the Women’s Australian Open which was Lyds’ first tournament with a new coach and new clubs and leaves me thinking maybe she shouldn’t try anything new in 2018.

Michelle Wie
“It’s fun to make some putts,” she said after giving up on her over-the-top and bent-over-putting stance and who knows the new claw grip may well be the way forward for Wie..

Justin Thomas
“I’m probably just as excited to watch it as you are. I just get a front row seat to it on Thursday. But I’m also looking forward to trying to kick his ass, to be perfectly honest."
Kicking Tiger’s ass maybe tough come 2018 if we’re to believe Brad Faxon

Brad Faxon
"I was impressed with how far he hit the ball. Probably on the 10 holes that they were both hitting driver, Tiger hit it past Dustin half the time and Dustin hit it past Tiger half the time. He looked great," said after a recent round with Dustin Johnson, Tiger Woods and President Donald Trump.

Ian Poulter

"You get distracted on the wrong hole at the wrong time and it's extremely penal and it's really f------ annoying."
Poults being his usually politically-uncorrect self and pissed off at golf fans’ mobile phones not being on silent during the British Masters.

Phil Mickelson
"I get that I can’t dance. I get that I can’t take selfies, but I can putt. And it was nice to roll that last one in,” said after winning a point for the U.S. at the Presidents Cup.
Stay with that putting thought Phil they’re already saying you could do well come the Masters.

Mike Davis
"You can't say you don't care about distance, because guess what? These courses are expanding and are predicted to continue to expand. The impact it has had has been horrible."
Amen to that!

Justin Rose

“The overriding thing as a player is that you have to commit to your process,” said after winning for the second week in a row.
Now there’s a thought we should all take with us into the new year.

And finally this from my 2016 Quotable Quotes.
“Shit! Do you want me to elaborate? Really shit!”
– Danny Willett, when asked about his Ryder Cup experience.
Here’s hoping Thomas Bjørn’s team can do better at Le Golf National.
