To keep that motivation going, here are some of the best quotes about golfing, straight from the top:

1. "Golf is about how well you accept, respond to, and score with your misses much more than it is a game of your perfect shots." said prominent sports psychologist Dr. Bob Rotella.

2. "Integrity is so important in this game," English golfer Justin Rose told The Telegraph. "You can cut a lot of corners in life but ultimately you only hurt yourself. Golf teaches you that. It teaches you failure. It is a very humbling sport. So you have to learn how to deal with a lot of losing. Life’s a journey and so is golf."

3. "The first hole is just as important as the last hole, and every shot is exactly the same," Tiger Woods told Time of his game play. "So you have the same intent, the same intensity. Nothing changes."

4. "Golf is the closest game to the game we call life," legendary golfer Bobby Jones once said, according to Entrepreneur. "You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots — but you have to play the ball where it lies."

5. "Concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger," Arnold Palmer noted, according to Golf Digest.

6. “Keep your sense of humor," advises long time golf champ Amy Alcott, according to The American Golf Corporation. "There’s enough stress in the rest of your life not to let bad shots ruin a game you’re supposed to enjoy."

7. "I would have to say that, probably, my only peace has been in between the ropes and hitting the shots," Woods revealed to Time.

8. "It's not just a change of a technique and then you get the results right away," Swedish golf pro Annika Sörenstam told Elle about reaching the top. "It's a lifestyle change. It's a commitment, and I mean total commitment, so you have to be able to take the ups and downs."
