"If I never had gotten into golf, I think I'd have been a baseball player. My first love was baseball. I was a catcher. I was a good, strong hitter -- a switch hitter -- with a good arm. But baseball was a sport where I needed someone else to throw the ball back, and you're waiting on a dusty field for other kids to show up. Heck, I could go to the golf course and practice whenever I wanted to practice, and I didn't have to rely on someone else. That's what ran me out of baseball."
