My golf game can only go on so long, But what I have learned can be put into a piece of ground and that will last beyond me.”  “You always feel as though the last course you've done is the best course you've done, but I have never made that statement about any golf courses I have done because I'd have 200 and some people become very upset. This golf course is so spectacular and this is such a spectacular piece of property that... it was our job not to mess it up.”
