Who Said It Best: Bill Murray in Caddyshack or Tiger Woods?

You don't have to be a golf fan to judge the relative wisdom of the No. 1 golfer in the world and Murray's character Carl Spackler, the nuttiest greenskeeper who ever tried to kill a gopher.

On Victory

Murray: Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion.

Woods: The only thing that means a lot to me is winning.

On Obsession

Murray: To kill, you must know your enemy and in this case, my enemy, is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit—ever.










Woods: It will always be the ball and me.

On Being Special

Murray: License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will.









Woods: I don’t get to live by different rules. The same boundaries that apply to everyone apply to me.

On Spirituality

Murray: And [the Dalai Lama] says, “Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.” So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.

Woods: In therapy I have learned the importance of keeping spiritual life and professional life balanced.

On Decency

Murray: I think it’s about time that somebody teach these varmints a little lesson about morality, and about what its like to be a decent upstanding member of a society.

Woods: Achievements on the golf course are not what matters, decency and honesty are what matter.
