Some of the best quotes from Tuesday at The Open Championship, including comment from Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose and Bubba Watson

Below, we look at some of the best quotes from Tuesday at The Open Championship, including comment from Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose and Bubba Watson.

Tiger Woods:

– “I know some of you guys think I’m buried and done, but I’m still right here in front of you.”
– “I’m always nervous. I care about what I do. When I’m not nervous is the day I quit.
– “I’ve always enjoyed this golf course, from the first time I played it back in ’95 – there’s just something special about it.”

Rickie Fowler:

– “I had a lot of fun at the Scottish Open with the way I closed and ultimately being able to win the tournament. The game feels very good right now and I’m very comfortable on links courses. The Old Course is one of my favourite courses, and this is a special venue. I’m really looking forward to the week.”
– “You can never master this game. That’s what’s so great about it. Even when you are the best player in the world or winning tournaments, there’s always more to be done and more to be won.”
– [On potential inclement weather] – “The biggest thing for me is going out, trying to make it as fun as possible and trying to embrace the challenge. You’ve got a tee time – go tee it up and make the best of it.”

Bubba Watson:

– “Playing here in The Open Championship is an honour and a thrill. Rumour is there could be some winds, so it’s going to be a challenge out there.”
– “On paper it’s not the best tournament for me. The way I like to move it is pretty difficult in heavy wind and rain. I’m lucky we don’t have to play every course like this, so I have a chance to perform at a high level somewhere else.”
– “I move the ball a lot, and it’s not because I want to. I want to be like the greats of the game and hit the ball dead straight, but I just can’t do it.”

Justin Rose:

– “Winning The Open would be the world. It would be a realisation of a lot of childhood dreams. This is the one tournament I dreamed of winning. Obviously major championships, you’ll take any of them, but if you were to get picky, this would be the one for me.”
