    Two that really aren't quoted by anyone famous, but the quotes themselves can be classified as such. I hear both at least once a round regardless of who I'm playing with

    "I think it opens up over there"

    "It should be ok"

                "It's not how, just how many"

                Usually hear that one on the same hole as "thin it to win it"

                Also that line about golf being the best way to get to know someone has been said about many games and as far as I know, the first famous guy to say something like that was Plato when he said
                "I can learn more about a man in 20 minutes of play than 6 hours of conversation"
                ...so I guess he'd have you all figured out around the second green.

                  In fact there is no evidence whatsoever that Plato wrote or said that.
                  There are several vrsions of the "quote" all of which are up for discussion:

                    TY. Silly me for not dbl checking something a high school English teacher told me. Still tho...that line is at least as old as Platos time.

                      The uglier a man's legs are, the better he plays golf - it's almost a law. - H.G. Wells.

                      I am assuming this is reference to the style and colour pallet of pant wear a golfer usually wears?

                          Always loved this one for a laugh..

                          "The ardent golfer would play Mount Everest if somebody put a flagstick on top."

                          And something I tend to say once per round to playing partners..

                          "The most important shot in golf is the next one."
