    I'm playing the locker room attendant? Ray Floyd to Lee Trevino around '65 (?), when he found out LT was his opponent in a big $$ El Paso match.

    All pretty well known, I guess all knows who is saying what.
    Are there more cocky comments made by tour players?

    Actually I don't know who said any of those,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    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".

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

    Not at all. It's a simple statement of what "they" want to do.

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

    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.

    Certainly understand cockiness "selling" and I'm sure that promotes interest in most anything.

    My general rule of thumb is, if you (or your promoters) have to tell everybody how great you are,,,,,, you ain't all that.

    When disinterested parties in your success tell everybody how great you are, you are.

    Phil Mickelson on playing best ball matches against Keegan Bradley............

    “Now, Keegan is about ready to bow out of these games because he’s never won. It’s been a year and a half and he’s paid every time. And it gets demoralizing. So he’s like, ‘If I don’t win today, I’m out. … This is the day. This is the day I’m going to win.’

    “Fast forward to the 12th green. Keegan and I have about a 16-footer and 14-footer, and I’m away. Now they’re 2 up. They’re 2 up. And as I’m standing over this putt, I back away, and I say, ‘Oh my goodness, this putt is the entire match.’

    “And Keegan bit, and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, how so?’ which is what I was hoping he would say.

    “And I said, ‘Well, if I miss, you’re going to make your putt. You have momentum, you’re going to make it, and you’re going to be 3 up with six to go, and you guys are going to win. But if I make it, you’re going to quick-peel yours low side. You’re going to be so pissed off, you and Brendan are going to give us a hole. Next thing you know, we’re going to be tied, Rickie and I are going to have momentum, we’re going to make a birdie or two coming in, probably beat you, 2 and 1.

    “So I knock it in. I knock it in. And of either side he could have missed it on, he missed it low side. He quick-peeled it low side. Now they’re so pissed off, they both bogey the next hole, and we get that hole and now we’re tied. So Rickie and I birdie 15, 16 and 17, and win, 2 and 1.

    “And I just chuckle about the story every time I hear it, because it’s just funny. And I don’t care about the money. I just love being able to – and I give him smack about this every time I see him.”

    **"The funny thing is, after watching him play last Sunday, I think he's more beatable than ever,"
    **
    The result: The two didn't cross paths again until three months later at the Bridgestone Invitational, but Woods made use of the opportunity nonetheless. Paired with Sabbatini in the final round, Woods shot 65 to win. Sabbatini again shot 74.

    Earl Woods:

    "Tiger will do more than any other man in history to change the course of humanity … I don't know exactly what form this will take, but he is the Chosen One. He'll have the power to impact nations. Not people. Nations. The world is just getting a taste of his power."
