For a bit of light-hearted golf fun we’ve compiled a list of our favourite golf quotes from great golfers and the occasional great golf coach.
All of them are so true though, so try and remember some of them either when you are practising or on the golf course.
Here are some of Lee Trevino’s famous funny golf quotes:
“If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron” (Don’t try this at home…)
“An interesting thing about golf is that no matter how badly you play, it is always possible to get worse”
“One of the nice things about the Senior Tour is that we can take a cart and a cooler. If your game is not going well, you can always have a picnic”
“You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work.”
“The most important shot in golf is the next one” – Ben Hogan
“Of all the hazards, fear is the worst” – Sam Snead
“A routine is not a routine if you have to think about it” – Davis Love Jr
“A golfer has to train his swing on the practice range, then trust it on the course” – Dr Bob Rotella
“No-one ever swung a golf club too slowly” – Bobby Jones
“There is no similarity between golf and putting – they are two different games. One is played in the air and the other on the ground” – Ben Hogan
“When you lip out several putts in a row, you should never think that means that you’re putting well. When you’re putting well, the only question is what part of the hole it’s going to fall in, not if it’s going in.” – Jack Nicklaus
