Arnold Palmer quote:

“It’s a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get.”

Note

This popular quote has actually been attributed to many other sources, a number of them golfers, like another great of the sport and a contemporary of Palmer’s, Gary Player.

But I like to attribute it to Palmer, namely for his unorthodox swing and very aggressive playing style. So I find it very appealing as a package to combine the “work hard” message of this quote, along with Palmer’s also being able to not only work with what he’s got, no matter how unorthodox and unusual, but do it to reach the very pinnacle of his profession.

Truth is, it’s pretty clear that neither is really the originator of the quote, and both had given us their own variations of some saying they picked up elsewhere. Maybe from golf locker rooms, considering how many other pro golfers have been credited with saying it. There’s no shortage of evidence that similar quotes had been making the rounds decades before either of these legends had come on the golfing scene.

Nevertheless, we can see that the adage’s wisdom really resonates with a lot of people, and in particular, the very successful. That should tell you something.
