“We’re friendly, we’ve hung out a few times… It’s a competition. Mike and Tiger are the two most competitive people that I’ve ever met.”

“I love being around people with that kind of competitive energy. But Michael would compete with anything thought. If we’re drinking water, Mike would be like ‘I’ll race you!’… You can’t beat Mike at anything. If Mike can’t beat you, he’s not going to play… I considered myself competitive till I spent time with them. It’s another level, like another command of their minds. You see why they win because of that kind of mindset.”

“He’s not good at that… somehow you always get your hands to the check before him.”
