“The most nervous I ever was, standing on a first tee, was my first Masters in 1968. The second most nervous was at Milwaukie C.C. (at the 1969 Walker Cup), being the first person to hit a ball for the United States. The flag goes up, the national anthem’s played, the whole nine yards. We’re playing alternate shot. Steve Melnyk was my partner. I proceeded to hit the ugliest snap hook you ever saw. We were way up on top of a hill (on the first tee). 5,000 people standing around. ‘Oh that’s ok partner, no problem’ (says Steve). We get down the hill onto the fairway ‘You son of a bitch’ (says Steve).” – Silver Club Golfing Society Podcast; Episode 12 14th May 2019

“It was a great experience. The first match was me and Colt (Knost). We played against Rory McIlroy (and Jonny Caldwell). I remember how nervous I was on the first tee. There must have been 5,000 people but they’re all walking on the fairway behind you so it felt like 100,000 people. The team we had was unbelievable. I think pretty much every guy is on Tour. So we had a pretty solid team. We won so that was a lot of fun.” – Dustin Johnson USGA Interview
