  • The joy I get from winning a major championship doesn't even compare to the feeling I get when a kid writes a letter saying: 'Thank you so much. You have changed my life.'

Race/fashion quote - unable to source[edit]

The quote "Hockey is a sport for white men. Basketball is a sport for black men. Golf is a sport for white men dressed like black pimps." is all over the internet, dates back to maybe 2008 (sorry, wasn't paying super close attention to the dates), and never seems to be accompanied with even a hint of where or when Tiger Woods said it. I'm mentioning it here in case someone has better luck than I in finding a source, but we shouldn't include it just based on a bunch of quote libraries and media outlets copying it from each other.

It turns out to be by Ren Hicks: [1] I remember when that quote got passed around sometime around 2002 as part of a list of funny one-liners, all taken from that Guardian page. Apparently someone literally went through and replaced the name of each comedian with a celebrity (Barbara Bush, Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Nicholson, etc.). Pretty cynical stuff.
