I was three over. One over a house, one over a patio, one over a swimming pool.

This from a newspaper, Friday, October 20, 2009

"Sonoma - A week ago Phil Blackmar wasn't sure he wanted to keep playing competitive golf. Now he's trying to win for the second straight week."

Blackmar: "Somebody jumped in my body last week ... I guess he's still there... I hope he stays there for another three days. I don't know who he is."

"Dividing the swing into its parts is like dissecting a cat. You'll have blood and guts and bones all over the place. But you won't have a cat."

"The Golf Hall of Fame is full of players with unusual looking swings. Some of the prettiest swings you've ever seen in your life are made on the far end of the public driving range by guys who couldn't break an egg with a baseball bat."

"The first time I played in the Oakland Open I was paired with Byron Nelson. We hit our drives on one of the hardest 4 pars pretty close together and I saw Byron's ball ended up in a real nasty divot a little over 200 yards from the green. I tried to figure what I could do with it, maybe gouge a 4 wood out short of the green so I could chip up and make par. I'm still thinking about it and Bang! he nails a 2 iron way up high straight at the pin. Lands on the front edge and stops less than 20 foot from the hole. I looked back down and the divot was exactly the same, not a blade of grass moved from him hitting that ball. We had to wait on the next tee and I say to him, nice shot out of that divot back there.. He tells me 'What divot?'. That's why I never turned pro."

"I'm pretty tired, son. I tell you what, how about I feather a little four wood up next to the hole here, make my two and you drive me home in the cart?"
