Cocky Comments

HankshankHankshank Members Posts: 1,772 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

”I’m a top-5 player in the world”
”It’s gonna be me and Tiger”
”I guess, hello world”
And of course - ”it is”
All pretty well known, I guess all knows who is saying what.
Are there more cocky comments made by tour players?

    LOL.

    I think those are all of them, actually.

    Tour players are a humble lot who expect little in the way of perks and accept their outcomes with humor and grace.

    One would guess that old timers like Bobby Jones and Hagen were not always humble.

    Don't know if Jack actually said it, but most of the time it was true.

    Has there ever been a 10 & 8?

    86 Masters, 16th hole. After Jack hit his tee shot he was bending over to pick up his tee and Jackie says" be right". Without even looking up Jack says"it is". It wound up about three feet under the hole. Fellow players say it's the loudest roar they've ever heard on a golf course. I don't actually think of this as cocky, just pretty cool.

    Daniel Berger "we just want to crash them as hard as we can" it's the stupidest cocky comment and deserves a mention.

    Cocky? The Haig is the GOAT.

    From what I've seen Bobby was a very humble guy. Hagen ? See above. LOL

    However, first "Hagen" above is cocky. 2nd is a simple statement of fact, ergo, NOT "cocky".

    Now had he said "We're going to crash them as hard as we can",,,,,,,, cocky. The "Golf Gods" don't like that. LOL

    Tiger put himself on his "Mount Rushmore" of golf. Not sure if that counts as cocky or a logical statement.

    Poor Curtis....I genuinely like him but this is cringe worthy...
    Especially considering the 80+ wins....
    80 cuts is insane...let alone 80 wins at the most prestigious events(majors, wgc, etc)...not even counting the euro and Asian tour wins...

    Understand the Haig was the ultimate PGA tour salesmen, without him and a few others (Sarazen, Fred Corcoran his manager) it might never have gotten off the ground. He did yeoman's work promoting the way he knew best, and he could back it up.
