The most astounding Harry Vardon quotes that will activate your inner potential

Do not be tempted to invest in a sample of each golfing invention as soon as it makes its appearance. If you do, you will only complicate and spoil your game - and encumber your locker with useless rubbish.


Never concede the putt that beats you.


For this game you need, above all things, to be in a tranquil frame of mind.


Even in our darkest hour we must remember; never dispair.


If your opponent is playing several shots in vain attempts to extricate himself from a bunker, do not stand near him and audibly count his strokes. It would be justifiable homicide if he wound up his pitiable exhibition by applying his niblick to your head.


To play well you must feel tranquil and at peace.

I have never been troubled by nerves in golf because I felt I had nothing to lose and everything to gain.


Don't play too much golf. Two rounds a day are plenty.


Don't praise your own good shots. Leave that function to your partner who, if a good sport, will not be slow in performing it.


More matches are lost through carelessness at the beginning than any other cause.


There are many ways of performing the operations successfully.

I can claim, however, to be in a position to explain how not to putt. I think I know as well as anybody how not to do it.

Golfers find it a very trying matter to turn at the waist, more particularly if they have a lot of waist to turn

No matter what happens, keep on hitting the ball.


Moderation is essential in all things, madam, but never in my life have I failed to beat a teetotaller.


The advent of the rubber ball was instrumental in creating an entirely different method of striking the object. The solid ball required to be hit for carry, whereas it was quickly apparent that the Haskell lent itself to an enormous run. I hold the firm opinion that from this date the essential attitude towards accuracy was completely lost sight of. This was the start of the craze for length and still more length.
