Everyone is thinking that I’m going to pick them automatically. I can assure you that I’m not going to pick them automatically. I said about Tiger that I’ll pick him if he’s playing well and he’s in good health. Phil is the same way. If he’s playing well, again, how can you not pick those two? – Watson, on using his Ryder Cup captain’s picks on Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson based on their current form.

I would say yes, but that’s my position on it. He’s the captain. Obviously it’s his decision. He’s going to field the best 12 players that he thinks will win the cup back, and I hope I’m on that team. – Woods, when asked if he would pick himself to be Tom Watson’s Ryder Cup team.

It would mean a lot of hype going into Augusta next year. Not a lot of people have achieved the career Grand Slam.

I may be putting a bit too much pressure on myself, going out on Fridays and trying to back up a score.

I think it just got into my head. – McIlroy, on his propensity this year for shooting high scores on Fridays after low ones on Thursdays.

I had to wait until a certain time, and I did it after the U.S. Open, started asking the players, and I didn’t expect too many to be able to make it. … It didn’t bother me.

Something like that, the only thing you can do is say, well done. At the end of the day we’re all doing our best. And if somebody is better than you, you can’t ask yourself for anything else. If you’re disappointed at somebody making birdies and eagles, then you’re not a good sportsman. – Garcia, on the play of Rory McIlroy at the Open.

And I know if I can do that, then trophies like this are within my capability. - McIlroy, on a big reason why he's back in the major championship winner's circle.
