Facebook: Robbie Lakeman response:QuotedRobbie Lakeman I'm not lucky enough. Good enough, but not lucky enough.
In an interview in Golf Digest magazine in 2002 Gary Player presents an entertaining story about the origin of the expression [GPGD]:I was practicing in a bunker down in Texas and this good old boy with a big hat stopped to watch. The first shot he saw me hit went in the hole. He said, “You got 50 bucks if you knock the next one in.” I holed the next one. Then he says, “You got $100 if you hole the next one.” In it went for three in a row. As he peeled off the bills he said, “Boy, I’ve never seen anyone so lucky in my life.” And I shot back, “Well, the harder I practice, the luckier I get.” That’s where the quote originated when he was playing and motivate himself.
I would say "Unbelievable!" but it's exactly the opposite. It was just a matter of time.
