Butch Harmon, on his dad, Claude Harmon (August 1997)
Dad could really stick the needle in when you deserved it, without making you hurt too much. There was the time I was in Cleveland playing so badly I was ready to give up. I called home, told Dad I'd be back in New York the next day and was wondering if he could watch me hit some balls.
"I don't know what I'm doing, Dad," I said. "I've missed three cuts in a row. I'm just playing terrible."
"Terrible?" Dad said, sounding confused. "Gee, I thought you were leading the tournament this week."
"No, Dad, I missed the cut. I finished dead last."
"Oh," he said, "I must have had the paper upside down."Dom Furore
