“Any time you’re head-to-head with the best player that I’ve ever seen is fun. I know I’m probably going to fall down and fail more than I’ll probably succeed in those situations, and I have, but I finally got one on him. I’m certainly going to savor it. My guess is that it’s not going to faze (Woods) in the slightest, because he seems to always rally and get back up.” – Johnson, reflecting on his playoff win over Tiger Woods at the World Challenge.

“I will be asking for starts but this is the last time. I think that if I can have a 20 event schedule then it's up to me to get my status. As a player you need to perform and if I don't do that in 2014 I will do something else.” – Duval, in a series of tweets, claiming that it will be the last year that he will ask for sponsor exemptions, and that he would do something else if he can’t find a way to qualify for tournaments on his own.

“The lion’s share of the money is going to big prizes, cash prizes for athletes and all the promotion around it, so it's really pathetic, actually. Every single taxpayer in this country ultimately is bearing the burden of having to pay the taxes for this wildly inefficient organization that’s giving so little to charity.” – Charity Navigator president Ken Berger, in an ESPN “Outside the Lines” report, challenging the nonprofit status of the PGA Tour, which is headed by Tim Finchem (pictured), with a bill pending in the U.S. Senate.

Something else is going on (with him)." – Norman, on Rory McIlroy’s struggles with equipment this year. McIlroy finally broke through for his first win of 2013 in late November at the Australian Open.

"I never feared anything or anyone on the course, and I wasn't afraid to fail. So I think I'd do pretty well against Snead, Hogan, Tiger (Woods) and Phil (Mickelson) – whoever. Tiger's a tough guy, but I was a tough guy on the course, too. I probably would have beat him." – Norman, giving himself the edge against some of the game's best players, including the man currently atop the world rankings.
