Words From The Wise

In this, Golf World's fourth installment of Words From The Wise, we give two foursomes of special golf folks the tee to talk -- to tell stories, celebrate triumphs, rue a loss or two and share the wisdom of their years.

Adapted from the March 31, 2014 issue of Golf World

"How do we make the game of golf accessible again to regular people? That's a hell of a question. For one thing, the pros have to do a better job of connecting with the fans. I see players and I wonder sometimes when they ignore the press why they're not interested. It may be that the money just came too easy for them. ... It's something that I tried to create -- the money, the purses -- and it may be working a little in reverse. Players need to remember they didn't make golf. Golf made them."
