We need to reach that happy stage of our development when differences and diversity are not seen as sources of division and distrust, but of strength and inspiration.

I want to play golf, practice and not do much else.

I don't drink, I don't smoke and I hate going places where you have to yell at someone who is about a foot away from you.

If I can hit the ball the way I want to hit it on the range, I'd rather do that than play golf. I just love the feeling of hitting good golf shots.

Golf is a passion that will stay with me forever. That's all I know.

Maybe I should write 'Tiger Who?' on my cap.

I open the driving range and I close it.

I thought you ought to know that I work hard. I like practising. I enjoy it. If I did not enjoy it I would not do it. What is the point of going back to the hotel, having a drink and talking a load of bull?

You win one and then you win another.

You feel more comfortable and more confident, and it snowballs. You can't wait to get to the next hole and play better.

It doesn't much concern me if Tiger plays in the tournament or no.

He started pushing to make birdies and you don't do that when you're down.

When they say America is the land of opportunity, it's true.

If you work hard, people appreciate you.

I am proud of my achievements, my work ethic, and the way I live my life.

The PGA Tour not only treated me unfairly, but displayed a lack of professionalism that should concern every professional golfer and fan of the game.

There are probably guys who could be superstars but aren't because they didn't work at it.

My journey has been a very slow build-up.

Each year has been a step upward. I've never actually gone backward.

I'm going to go out and play really hard.

If I have another win, it will be icing on the cake. But I don't take anything for granted.

A well balanced, inclusive approach, according to certain standards and ideals, is essential for the proper governance of any country.

I will, from this day strive to forge togetherness out of our differences.

A well balanced, inclusive approach, is essential for the proper government of any country.

Golf is about knowledge, and studying another player - more than listening to a teacher - is the best way to get it.

The way you play, you need to talk about winning.

Don't talk about keeping your card - talk about winning.

It's like getting the Williams sisters to play (tennis) against a man, and they're far better athletes than she (Sorenstam) is.

Dr. Parent has been a great influence on my mental game. ZEN GOLF is the best book at connecting golf and the mind together. It's for everyone, it really helps, and you're really going to enjoy it.

The more they made noise, the more calm I became.

The green is so narrow that if you over-club, you've got an impossible bunker shot. If you're short, you're pretty much dead.

I think we have arrived at the stage where we are making it too complicated.

I know guys who can't play two rounds before running to their teachers.

In my heart I know what kind of person I am, and that's good enough.

I can honestly say that in my time in America, I have not encountered any racism. When Jim Thorpe and I make fun of each other on the range, or even when a white player makes a joke about my color, I take it as what it is-a joke-and give it back accordingly.

I have this reputation of not wanting to talk to the media, which isn't true.

What I don't like-what a lot of us don't understand-is how we can say one thing and it turns up in print as something else.

I have a lot of friends, in and out of golf, and there is a mutual trust.

I'm very serious at the course. Maybe if I joked around more around the press tent, your image of me would be different. But that's not me. And the golf course is my office. If I come up to you when you're writing a story, are you going to drop everything to talk? Or are you going to say you're too busy doing your job?

The people who know me, the people who see the passion I have for this game and the respect for it, they know that I don't cut any corners in the way I approach golf.

Galleries are nice to me. I sign a lot of autographs.

If I don't like someone, I'll let that person know. I'm not very diplomatic. I understand that.

Sometimes, we should maybe sit back and look at all we have.

It's because of golf and the tour. I mean, this life we lead is unbelievable.

I'd like to have a little better relationship with the media.

It's just that I don't think the media is comfortable with me.

Whenever you're in a position to win, you don't want to let it go.

I just play the game. I hit a shot and wait for the next guy to hit his. I don't think between shots-that's my nature.

It never really crossed my mind that I was ever going to win a major.

I always said that if you win a major, that's fine. If you don't, you tried your best.

I've learned so much through life. Starting off in Asia, the cultures, the people you meet, the poverty you see. It's been a great education for me, and I've loved every minute of it.

I've won a lot of times with my wife and son here, and I've won solo.

I don't think there's a formula for when the come out and when they don't I'm simply happy to win.

I have always felt that public, commercial and community organisations should be as open as possible about their affairs. They need to be accountable to their owners, their customers, their members and communities and other interest groups.

I hope she misses the cut. She doesn't belong here.

I'm playing pretty good now, but my ranking doesn't say that. I'm number two.

Let us make a pledge now to help Fiji through this very important next stage of its journey. We can do this by promising to be patient, calm and tolerant and by respecting the views of others, even if we disagree with them.

Give me your trust and confidence, knowing that what I seek is for the good of Fiji, for the good of us all.
