“I do like match play.  I like trying to match an opponent shot for shot.  It’s a challenge.  And it’s something different.” (Retief Goosen)

“Chips get holed, shots get holed, and putts get holed, because there’s that intense focus on trying to hole that shot. As opposed to stroke play which is so much more conservative.” (Graeme McDowell on the difference between match play & stroke play!)

“Match play really exposes your character and how much of a will to win you have in your heart.” (Johnny Miller)
