“Life is tough, then you die. The sooner you accept that and move on with your life, the better off you'll be.”
Michael Murphy

“Replacing the divot is “an exercise for the public good.” It is also a reminder that “we are all one golfer.” There would simply be no game if every golfer turned his back on the damage he did.”
Michael Murphy, Golf in the Kingdom

“I can think of no better way to say it—those final holes played me.”
Michael Murphy, Golf in the Kingdom
