"I just got tired of it. I was like, these guys are good enough. About two or three months ago, I just said screw it. I'd try to help some of these guys find a (pro) club. It was always the same thing. You talk to a club about them and they pick them apart, tell you everything that's wrong with them. It's one big excuse factory why they're not good enough. It was always, 'Yeah but.'"
