Winning on Tour is tough enough, especially when dealing with certain distractions, but some have a cool confidence about themselves at Colonial Country Club.

“[Blanking] great bet … Dumbass for the Grand Slam part, though." -Tiger Woods, during a Tiger Jam event, on what he made of gambler James Adducci's $85,000 bet on him to win the Masters, and his next bet of $100,000 on Tiger to win the Grand Slam

"Yeah, there was a fan distraction let's call it. Kenny being Kenny, he went off on her. He was screaming at her, and he has every right to do so. [But] I felt bad for the lady. … "I was upset at first, and then I saw the lady's face, and I was like, 'Oh, my God. She's going to pee in her pants.' So I said, 'Come on, Kenny. Let's forget about it. Let's just go.'" -Kevin Na on a fan distraction at the Charles Schwab Challenge

“I wasn't nervous. I was just in shock, I think. I was in shock of what was kind of going on. ... I can't tell you the last time I made four bogeys in a row." -Brooks Koepka on his near collapse at the PGA Championship

“While I’m making progress with my recovery, I have decided to withdraw from the U.S. Women’s Open. It was a difficult decision to make because the U.S. Open was one that I was looking forward to playing in all year, but my recovery and health is the priority. Thanks so much for all the messages of support - they really keep my spirits up. I am hopeful that I’ll be seeing you all back out on tour very soon!” -Michelle Wie's tweet on withdrawing from the U.S. Women's Open because of injury

"I don't know that anybody saw this coming. We saw his talent. We knew how good he was. We knew how far he hit it. We knew that he had good touch around and on the greens. But how is it that a man who's only won twice in regular Tour events shows up at the events with the thickest pressure, that mean the most, with the most mental hurdles that everybody else trips over, and he just glides right over them, one by one by one? That's miraculous, is what it is. … He’s made a believer out of me.” -Brandel Chamblee on Brooks Koepka following his win at the PGA Championship

"I have complete confidence in what we’re doing. It’s just a matter of going out at trusting it. There’s no reason not to trust it. I don’t need to finish high. I don’t need to win. There’s no reason for me not to trust every swing tomorrow." -Jordan Spieth on his outlook trying to win for the first time since the 2017 Open Championship

“I think I kind of deserved it. You’re going to rattle off four in a row and it looks like you’re going to lose it; I’ve been to sporting events in New York. I know how it goes. ... I think [fans chanting for Dustin Johnson] actually helped. It was at a perfect time because I was just thinking, ‘OK, all right, I’ve got everybody against me. Let’s go.’” -Brooks Koepka on the negative energy from the New York fans on the back nine at the PGA Championship

“Kind of caught a beamer to the back of the head. A little toe shank, I guess. … Might've knocked some sense into me, to be honest. My wife always says I have a hard head. Kind of took my mind off golf a little bit, to be honest with you.” -Trey Mullinax on his concussion from getting hit with a golf ball during his Wednesday pro-am at the Charles Schwab Challenge

“Telling me I wasn't tough. That pissed me off. That really pissed me off.” -Brooks Koepka on Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee saying Koepka wasn't tough during the Masters

"Yeah, I like this golf course. One of those golf courses I look forward to coming to. Fits my game. I've got a good record. You've got to take advantage of those weeks because there is not too many golf courses like this on tour anymore. ... I say seven or eight [courses I can realistically contend at]. Some golf courses I feel like I have no chance. I don't play those unless it's a major and I've got no choice. I won't mention any names." -Kevin Na on playing at Colonial Country Club
