Any time you play in a USGA Championship, if you don't

Any time you play in a USGA Championship, if you don’t drive the ball on the fairway, you’re dead. You’re done.
Tom Watson
In case of a thunderstorm, stand in the middle of the fairway and hold up a one iron. Not even God can hit a one iron.
Lee Trevino
I think I’ve always used a lower-lofted 3-wood, and I’ve been able to get the ball up. And, for me, I love having the versatility of it in the fairway, as well as off the tee.
Collin Morikawa
As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.
Ben Hogan
I’m sure you have a hole at your course where you love to hit the tee shot. You can’t wait to get up there and bomb away because the fairway is wide, or the hole always plays downwind.
Ernie Els
My golf score is really bad. I don’t know. I’m definitely not a good golfer. Off the tee box, I can drive it about 275, and I’m in the fairway about 99% of the time. It’s my next shot that needs work.
Jason Aldean
If you can hit your 3- and 5-woods with confidence from the fairway, par 5s become birdie opportunities, and 420-yard par 4s are a lot less scary.
Ernie Els
If you put me in the fairway at my average distance into a par 4, 175 to 180 yards, and you put another player in the rough 120 yards from the green, over time, I’m going to wear him out.
Zach Johnson
From a good lie in the middle of a fairway bunker, I’ll make the same swing as I do from an average fairway lie. I’ll dig my feet in slightly and keep my lower body stable so I won’t slip, but I don’t change my club selection or setup. It’s only when the ball is sitting down in the sand that I’ll make some modifications.
Ernie Els
It was so weird that I would end up directing ‘The Greatest Game Ever Played,’ because, y’know, I’m not a big golfer myself. But I grew up around the game. My mom and dad kind of built their dream house off the 11th fairway of Shady Oaks Country Club in Fort Worth.
Bill Paxton
Added to the rooster of courses, ‘Tiger Woods 10’ adds in seven new courses from the pristine Bethpage Black, home of this year’s U.S. Open, to the legendary Pinehurst. The Wii Weather Channel will even adjust the forecast to match the fairway because sometimes even the pros have to play in the rain.
Rob Manuel
Whether you’re driving it short or you drive it far, you got to be in the fairway because the rough’s brutal, and if you get out of the rough into some of these bunkers, you can get some funky lies.
Dustin Johnson
I don’t want to brag, but I do more homework on the course than any other announcer. I chart the greens to get all the breaks. I walk down into the greenside bunkers. I walk into the fairway bunkers to see whether a player can reach the green from them.
Johnny Miller
I want to improve my bunker, fairway and putting status because that’s been my weakness over the last three years. If I can just focus on this, then everything else will come.
Yani Tseng
Being in the fairway, I think the fairways are a little bit more overrated.
Brooks Koepka
When people pick the best drivers of all time, nobody ever picks Lee Trevino. But when he played, like at Tanglewood at the ’74 PGA, he missed one fairway in 72 holes.
Johnny Miller
Well, I think that Augusta is not the same golf course that I grew up on. Bobby Jones’ philosophy was giving you space off the tee; if you put it in the right side of the fairway, you ended up getting the right angle to the green.
Jack Nicklaus
