“I just told him how happy I was for him. That locks him up for the [U.S. Ryder Cup] team. He was sitting on that No. 9 spot and as a captain you’re always looking. You’re always watching. You want a lot of different pieces to the puzzle. You want your best players and you want the calming effect and the emotional fireplug and the guy who can loosen everyone up. He’s obviously that emotional spark.” – the U.S. Ryder Cup captain, on what Masters champ Patrick Reed will bring to his team.

“It’s important that the types of bets and the types of markets that are created around our competitions are ones that don’t increase the risk of corruption. By having some say in the types of bets that are offered we feel we can mitigate the risk that can be posed. If betting operators are going to be profiting off our competitions then we believe that the pro leagues are entitled to do that as well.” - the PGA Tour’s senior vice president of tournament administration, explaining that the Tour will support regulated gambling on its competitions if the Supreme Court overturns a federal ban on betting.

"It cost me the cut, most likely. It was probably 30 yards off the tee box and this giant, black bird swooped in front of it and it hit it and the ball fell 20 yards short in the water. It would've been in the middle of the green. It might have been close. I got screwed." – after missing the RBC Heritage cut when a second-round tee shot hit a bird and ricocheted into a water hazard.
