Quotable “Well, I think it’s only a third of what Tiger’s actually done. But just to be in the same conversation as Tiger is a dream come true and something that I’ve worked my entire life for. It’s the hours and hours that nobody sees to try to get to this point and even have a chance to win this trophy. It’s unbelievable; can’t put it into words.” -- Nick Dunlap
