"No one is ever perfect. I tried to perfect it. I never did, but I came close…"
"I'm flabbergasted. Such an honor. To take a foreigner and put him on a bank note. The only living person that's ever been on a bank note is the queen Mother. That's some honor I'm very proud of."
"In the early days when I was playing at the Masters I used to watch the scoreboards and one guy at the scoreboard happened to be in the army.... I saw a sign go up and it said "Hey Arnie, we're members of your army!" "Well that kind of spread from there. And of course the next thing you know there's just throngs of people joining "Arnie's Army."
"I thought your golf peak for most guys is in their 30's. So I'm pretty excited about it. Hopefully my 30's will be better than my 20's."
