 Lanny Wadkins - “I hadn't thought too much about it because I thought I was going to have a long career on the Champions Tour, ... I take the way I feel, or felt, on the golf course and try to compare it with the way some people are playing now, and give reasons for what's going on. I'm always pretty quick with a comment. That's just me.”
 Lanny Wadkins - “I think everybody got to the point that if he didn't keep doing it, he was going to have a hard time getting there. But they tend to forget that most guys play their best golf in their early to mid 30s. If Tiger follows that routine, he will probably just blow by Jack's record.”
 Lanny Wadkins - “Let's throw a combination out there that I liked and didn't come to fruition for other reasons. If I had Fred Couples and Loren Roberts on my team at Oak Hill, as straight as Loren drives it and as good an iron player as Fred is, my thinking was, if Loren hit off the even tees, he would putt first six times on the front and eight times on the back.

 Lanny Wadkins - “Imagine yourself in this scenario Your partner drives it 310 yards in the fairway, leaving a perfect angle to the flag. Having not hit a full iron shot for two holes, you double-cross it and put him in some bilious bottle dungeon on the left, from where he hits a buried alive, Siegfried and Roy, can't ever be duplicated, miracle pitch to six feet for a potential halve. How badly do you want to make that putt I've been on both sides of that equation, ... I've left my partners hanging out to dry, and it's an awful feeling. You're trying as hard as you can and you just can't make it happen. Without fail, it comes down to the crucial shot, and you're not the one playing well and you end up tanking your partner. It doesn't feel much worse than that.”
