You hit a bad shot, you have to get over it right there and then so you can get focused on the next one.
I think the golf swing is all about rotation, all about trying to keep the club on plane.
Under pressure, you can win with your mind.
Winning takes care of everything.
My mind is my biggest asset. I expect to win every tournament I play.
We all make decisions. But in the end, our decisions make us.
I believe that my creative mind is my greatest weapon.
All I know is I've tried my best.
The greatest thing about tomorrow is, I will be better than I am today.
The greatest thing about tomorrow is, I will be better than I am today. And that's how I look at my life. I will be a better golfer, I will be a better person, I will be a better father, I will be a better husband, I will be a better friend. That's the beauty of tomorrow.
As a child growing up, you never thought about being in a videogame, then to have a game of your own and be lucky enough to set the bar with it in the gaming world, it's a dream come true.
You've got to figure out what works best for you. That's the hard part. I know I can't play as stoic as Hogan, and I can't talk as much as Trevino. You have to be your own person.
No matter how good you get you can always get better, and that's the exciting part.
I think that in itself, if you're a true golfer, you'll see specific things you need to work on. Much cheaper than private lessons.
I know that balance that I need to have in my life.
I've always had that knack for staying pretty even keel and the more the situation gets tense the more I see things clearly and I think that's just a knack that I've always had.
As a kid when I was growing up, as any kid, you think you know every thing and I was no different to that.
The majority of my blood is Asian.
I wake up every day and I can't wait to go to work, and that's a gift. Not too many people have the opportunity to feel that way.
I feel like my life is pretty special.
Golf is evolving, every day, every shot.
I miss hanging out with my friends, getting in a little trouble. I have to be so guarded now.
I've always known where I wanted to go in life.
I'd gotten away from my Buddhism. And I quit meditating.
I saw a person that I never thought I would ever become.
I'm getting back to my old roots.
A lot has transpired in my life.
I'm lucky to have been able to represent different companies over my career.
My kids are doing just great.
Businesswise, everything's been good.
I really miss a lot of my friends out there.
I was living a life of a lie, I really was.
I was living a life of a lie. And I was doing a lot of things, that hurt a lot of people. And stripping away denial and rationalization you start coming to the truth of who you really are and that can be very ugly.
I've done some pretty bad things in my life.
I don't believe that human beings can achieve ultimate enlightenment, because humans have flaws.
I believe in Buddhism. Not every aspect, but most of it. So I take bits and pieces.
All that really matters is I have two beautiful kids, and I'm trying to be the best dad I can possibly be, and that's the most important thing of all.
My failures have made me look at myself in a way I've never wanted to before.
I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled, and thanks to money and fame, I didn't have to go far to find them.
I ran straight through the boundaries a married couple should live by.
I hurt my wife, my kids, my mother, my wife's family, my friends, my foundation and kids all around the world who admired me.
I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart.
I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves.
As you all know, I'm kind of a perfectionist.
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.
There are golfers everywhere who may never get a chance to play a links course in Scotland, a tree-lined course in America or the sand belts of Australia. Hopefully I can bring some of those elements into their backyards.
I've had the luxury of playing golf around the world, and I've spent a lot of time evaluating how to play all kinds of courses.
As a child, the family that I had and the love I had from my two parents allowed me to go ahead and be more aggressive, to search and to take risks knowing that, if I failed, I could always come home to a family of love and support.
The joy I get from winning a major championship doesn't even compare to the feeling I get when a kid writes a letter saying: 'Thank you so much. You have changed my life.'
Golf is something I do selfishly for myself.
Hopefully I'll continue to have the success I've had.
I've exceeded a few of my goals, but I'm behind on a couple of others.
I have been fortunate to have my game peak at the right times.
To have the opportunity to complete the slam at the Open at St Andrews, the home of golf, is something I will never ever forget.
I mean, as an athlete, as a competitor, you have to have that belief in yourself.
I started changing my swing in late 1999.
I remember there was a time when people were saying I could never win again.
I really don't feel like playing anymore.
Golf has made me and shaped me into the person I am here today.
America's a melting pot, all races, cultures, religious choices.
I always come from truth.
Everyone wants to get a piece of me.
Sensationalism sells: Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.
I look at a streak as I don't lose -- literally.
I lost my ability to will things to happen.
Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn't have to mean public confessions.
The Masters is where I won my first major, and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta.
I do plan to return to golf one day, I just don't know when that day will be.
I don't get to live by different rules. The same boundaries that apply to everyone apply to me.
Money and fame made me believe I was entitled. I was wrong and foolish.
For many my behavior has been a major disappointment, my behavior has caused considerable worry to my business partners, and everyone involved in my business, but most importantly to the young people we influence, I apologize.
Green and black go well together, don't they?
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.
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.
Michael left because of the Bulls' management, not because he'd lost his love of playing the game.
I'm not as far along as Jack Nicklaus was at this age, but I'm trying.
I love to play golf, and that's my arena. And you can characterize it and describe it however you want, but I have a love and a passion for getting that ball in the hole and beating those guys.
As a kid, I might have been psycho, I guess, but I used to throw golf balls in the trees and try and somehow make par from them. I thought that was fun.
I'm aware if I'm playing at my best I'm tough to beat. And I enjoy that.
I did envisage being this successful as a player, but not all the hysteria around it off the golf course.
Every sport evolves. Every sport gets bigger and more athletic, and you have to keep up.
It will always be the ball and me.
It's cool now to play golf.
In therapy I have learned the importance of keeping spiritual life and professional life balanced. I need to regain my balance.
I'm addicted. I'm addicted to golf.
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.
You can always become better.
I'd like to share my experiences and the lessons I've learned and hopefully create some amazing, fun courses.
I've been a gamer all my life.
Winning is not always the barometer of getting better.
I thoroughly enjoy getting away from the game and going out fishing because it's so relaxing, so quiet and peaceful. I mean, there's no noise other than nature -- and it's so different from what I do in a tournament situation that it just eases my mind.
I'm going to try to keep getting better.
My father had always called me Sam since the day I was born. He rarely ever called me Tiger. I would ask him, 'Why don't you ever call me Tiger?' He says, 'Well, you look more like a Sam.
I love to compete. That's the essence of who I am.
I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children.
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.
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.
I'm committed to try to make the product the best I possibly can.
To be able to hold all four majors -- the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, PGA -- all concurrently I think is the Grand Slam. But a lot of people have a different opinions on that. People think you have to win it in the same calendar year.
My mother was right when she said that turning pro would take away my youth.
I get to play golf for a living. What more can you ask for -- getting paid for doing what you love.
I want to be what I've always wanted to be: dominant.
