Drama to the very end

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best | -

In the 1972 US Open, with a three-shot lead (after hit­ting the pin on 17 for a tap-in birdie), I played the last hole at Peb­ble Beach with a 1-iron, 1-iron, wedge. To­day’s pro­fes­sion­als might hit a pair of hy­brids and a sand wedge. In the 2000 US Open, I took the chal­lenge and knocked it on in two at age 60. With tears in my eyes – I knew it was my last Open there – I three-putted for par.
