Golf Quote: “Just dealing with some of the pressure situations. I wasn’t a great athlete. … Patience, some of the lessons in golf, definitely help you out – at least (they helped) me out – in my career. Dealing with the entertainment business, just take it one shot at a time. It can go as quickly as it came. That’s also one of lessons that golf teaches you.”
