JLepp Gets Lucky On Big Break

A favourite line of a certain golf magazine editor, when he actually gets out to play golf on occasion, goes something like, "I'd rather be lucky than good anytime."

The line is generally offered in reference to one of his shots ending up in a much better place than it really deserved based on how it was struck to begin with.
