"Hagen was impressive because he was a showman. He would have a real tough shot, and he would walk up and just play it. But when he had a shot that looked fairly tough, though it was easy, why he'd move around and look at it a bit and make people think it was a real hard one. Of course, then he'd do the shot that folks thought was impossible, and the crowd loved it." -- Byron Nelson "I think Walter Hagen contributed more to golf than any player today or ever. He took the game all over the world. He popularized it here and everywhere. Walter was at the head of the class...[he] made professional golf what it is." -- Gene Sarazen "The difference between Hagen and other players is that he just wins and they just don't." -- Bernard Darwin, "The Times (London)" "The records and numbers alone speak volumes about Walter Hagen's career. But as I grew older, both personally and professionally Walter Hagen's place in history became very clear to me. Each time I was fortunate enough to carve out my own bit of history, my name was frequently linked to Hagen's, so I obviously became aware of the standards he set." -- Jack Nicklaus
