It's not the time

to start playing it safe.

Yeah, but if I make par,

he's gotta make birdie to tie me.

You're playing not to lose

instead of playing to win.


Remember who won

the Masters last year?

Well, that guy over there.

Yeah, that guy over there.

T.K. Oh got his fourth green jacket.

Remember who come in second?

Nobody remembers

the runner-up, Luke.

You can get on the green in two

if you hit it with the big stick.

That one hurt.

You want to hit a few?

Your hand up to it?

Ooh... ooh.


Come on, Luke.

Right into trouble.

Thread the needle with a 3-iron.

You bump and run it up on the green.

I think I should just punch out right here.

You got to put some pressure on.

Hit the 3.

Hit the 3, huh?

Hey, Mama, there's an Easter egg

hunt at the church tomorrow.

Sounds like fun.

Can we go, Dad?

You got some practicing to do tomorrow.

Martin, it's Easter Sunday.

Sundays are reserved for golf.

Son, you have to drop.

That's playing to lose.

You gotta listen to me.

I've been listening to you

my whole life

and this is where it's got me.

All right.

Where you gonna put it?

I hope he brought a snorkel.

All right.

Let's see what you got.

You gotta pull yourself

together here, son.

Am I embarrassing you?

You hooked it.

You gotta watch your right hand.

There you go.

Let it release.

Come on, now.

Let's get something started here.

Don't flip it.

Come on, now.

Come on.

One more good one.

In the hole!


Give me another one.


Well now, you're playing not to lose

instead of playing to win.

Nobody remembers

the runner-up, Luke.

- God!

- You gotta put some pressure on him.

Hit the 3.


He snaps his putter, flings the shaft,

and then the sad shot here,

He has written more than 2,500 songs and has won multiple Emmy and Telly Awards. His song, "Drop that Rock", was featured on his album In the Middle of It All and garnered a Dove Award nomination for Christian Country Album of the Year in 1999.In all of Cook's overseas recordings his surname is Cooke to distinguish it from his work in the United States. The male members of The Cook Family Singers have always used just their middle initials as a trademark, a trait beginning back in 1885 when the first such group was formed.In 1990 Cook was diagnosed with a dissociative disorder and psychogenic amnesia reportedly brought on by an abusive father. In 1999 Cook's story was used as a lead story with The 700 Club. more…
