#Quote
1When I was fifteen years old I was playing with my father and I hit an eight-iron into a trap, and the club went right into the trap after the ball. My father said, 'Young man, that'll be the last club you'll throw or the last hole you'll play if I have anything to say about it.' He got his message across.
